Nintendo - A Sad Story part two Triforces Link to open chests forever

Sleep, young prince.

PeterMolydeux is at it again, this time with Nintendo - A Sad Story part two.

The animation is not quite as disturbing as his previous effort: the nightmarish Nintendo - A Sad Story part one, but it's not far off.

In the video Link is forced to open a chest, take the key inside and use it to open a door over and over again until the young Hyrulian collapses with exhaustion.

Then Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata appears and things take a turn for the worse.

The message is clear: Nintendo is running poor Link into the ground by milking the Zelda series dry. Is the animation a metaphor for Nintendo's current high-profile troubles with the Wii U?
