Nintendo's Strange Celebrity Hostage Videos

As part of Nintendo's 25th brithday celebrations for The Legend Of Zelda, the publisher has roped a few celebrities into jumping in front of a camera to tell their personal stories involving the series.

Only...they don't look like they've been roped. Between the audio, video and backdrop, it looks more like there are masked gunmen on the other side of the camera, and Chris Evans' feet are bound with electric tape. Elijah Wood, poor kid, looks like he's been drugged by his captors, while Seth Green is one more word away from a bullet for his defiance in not staying on message.


(OK, seriously, Evans' clip, with his late-teen backtracking, is actually quite adorable, and bravo to WWE wrestler - and Zelda fanboy - Cody Rhodes for being the only one able to actually recount specifics)
