If you can’t get enough of hipster culture, or you’re just a video game artwork junkie, be sure to check out this ‘The Legend of Hipsters.’ Watch as classic video game icons Link, Ganondorf and Zelda get transformed into PBR-drinking V-neck wearers in this collection of images that are as humorous as they are impressive.

‘The Legend of Hipsters’ was drawn by deviantART user Dan Jones and he’s got the characters’ likeness as well as cliched hipster apparel down pat. Who knew Zelda’s elf hat would totally be suitable on a mannequin of an Urban Outfitters store?
