Robin Williams And His Daughter, Zelda In A Commercial For Zelda

Great Moments in Advertising

Robin Williams is a genius. He had a child in 1989 and named her Zelda knowing 22-years later it would make for amazing marketing opportunities. Ok, actually he named her that because he loved the video game so much but just go with it. You may remember the Williams’ previously advertised for Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in a saccharine sweet spot but this new one, for Four Swords, is even better because it features a stupendous transformation. I won’t spoil it for you – watch!
