The horrific animated cutscenes from the CD-I Zelda games are hilarious enough without any help-- honestly, the only way we can even begin to accept that people made these, and then watched them and decided they were fit for release is if we believe that they did it as a joke. We've embedded the original cutscenes from Link: The Faces of Evil, Zelda: Wand of Gamelon, and the less-common live-action (!) Zelda's Adventure after the break, just in case you haven't seen them.

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.
