Those are provided as background for our Zelda Week Featured Friday Video: a mashup of scenes from Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: Wand of Gamelon called "Swords for Dinner." It takes the unintentional humor found in the original videos' weird, jerky animation and pointless dialogue and makes it into a screamingly hilarious story that is only marginally stranger than whatever was happening in the real videos.

For those of you not familiar with the genre, here's a quick guide: YouTube Poop (YTP) is a video genre that specialises in making unintentionally funny footage (like the Zelda CD-i game cutscenes) even funnier through the use of sporadic video editing. The most frequently used clips are from the Zelda CD-i cutscenes, 'Hotel Mario' (another hilariously bad CD-i game), the 'Super Mario World' cartoon, and the old 'Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog' cartoon. Below are a couple of examples.
(Note: Trying to narrow this selection down to stuff without swearing or suggestive themes was HARD)
I keep a separate YouTube account for my favourite YTPs, so have a browse around if you like what you've seen so far.

yea, Youtube Poop is probably one of the best ADD/Random things to come along in a while. When they use audio clips cleverly, and slice in game lines, as the one used is a fair example), the can be a riot.
Plus Hotel Mario is probably the best game ever.
