The Robin Williams Zelda commercial features one of Hollywood's most celebrated stand-up comedians and stars mixing the reality of his personal life with the fantasy of one of Nintendo's biggest video game franchises.

The Robin Williams Zelda commercial features the former Mrs. Doubtfire deep in conversation about the lengths he was willing to go for Zelda interspersed with clips of the iconic video game. As Williams discusses his driving passion for Zelda, the camera flashes shots of a young female's face. Halfway through the commercial, it is revealed that Zelda is also the name of Robin Williams' daughter when she says, "Are you mixing me up with the princess again?"

The 21-year-old actress was named after Princess Zelda of the video game series, making the Robin Williams Zelda commercial a perfect blend of ridiculous and reality.
