I shave if my wife beat me at Four Swords, I don't have a daughter.

She has to grow her hair out and get a better hair cut?

Why aren't these in USA? And I wonder if he'll do a commercial for Skyward Sword...

Zelda tweeted that if she lost, the deal was to get a Triforce tattoo in an embarrassing place.
Nonetheless the commercial was adorable as usual and I love to see the interaction between these two over a game series that we, too, grew up with.

Weird Al Yankovic was the same way.  When he changed his look he went to looking like a 20 year old.

Also, what the heck happened there? My "quote Ceric" thing grabbed the wrong post. Ah well, you get what I meant to quote.

He does.  I think he grew it out because he was performing in a play on Broadway this past spring.
