So there was this guy, and he bought a Majora's Mask cartridge from a creepy old guy, and it had wicked scary glitches in it, like Link would burst into flame while the Song of Healing played backward, and ...

Someone posting to 4chan's /x/ board (its paranormal forum) has concocted a whale of creepy urban myth that lacks only a campfire, flashlights under the face, and someone's cousin's best friend's stepbrother.

Rest assured, someone will make a shitty movie out of this.
