Let’s tune into Hyrule folks. What that?! Oh no! Our hero’s shield just disintegrated into ash, leaving a very broke Link shield-less. In a clever new short that was released earlier this week, Link goes through great measures to collect rupees for a new shield.

Callegos Yavolitak produces animated shorts to his YouTube account every few months or so using Valve’s Source Filmmaker. Whether it’s featuring BioShock, Team Fortress 2, or PlanetSide 2, many of Yavolitak’s shorts tend to be clever video game references. 

This month’s short was dedicated to The Legend of Zelda. The crisp animation, familiar grunts and “HYAAHS” make this a huge treat for Legend of Zelda fans. The animated short adds a goofy persona to our beloved silent Hylian Hero. 

Whether it’s smashing pots, playing mini games or completing side quests, nothing is getting in the way of Link. He really wants that shield. 

So sit back, relax and check out this little gem!
