Let the Zelda Jokes Begin

Dan Gannon

Dan Gannon has quite the lively rail. Over and over they can be heard yelling "Zelda was wrong," and "Link was wrong," in reference to the popular video game series The Legend of Zelda. By using Gannon's last name as "Gannondorf," instead, his railbirds can pay homage to the villain of the popular game.

They have also changed the lyrics of the popular song "Bands A Make Her Dance" by Juicy J to "Dans That Make Her Dance."
