A father recorded his daughter standing by the exit escalator of Massachusetts’ Copley Place Mall, and sure, there’s nothing terribly special about goodbyes, we want you to watch this video without cracking a smile. Though the video is dated 2009 – it’s just now going viral, so we’re riding the trend-wave.
You may have seen this video making the rounds on game and geek sites – we saw it too! But all references to the video-makers were vague – and no one, it appeared, tried to get a hold of the creators. We did – and were pleased to find that it was made, for the most part, by two fathers (and cousins!) – Michael Consolmagno and David Larangeira. These two dudes are in their 30’s, so the love the Legend of Zelda franchise. I mean, who doesn’t, right? But while you and I just bought snarky t-shirts emblazoned with some video game-sex doublespeak, Consolmagno and Lanageira literally went back to the drawing board.
