Oscar-winning actor named daughter, also in commercial, after Nintendo game

Academy Award-winning actor Robin Williams (Mork & Mindy, Good Will Hunting, Happy Feet) and his daughter star in the above commercial for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D game for the Nintendo 3DS system.

Williams actually named his daughter after the title princess in the games, because he and his wife were fans of the very first Legend of Zelda game back in 1987. Williams and his daughter talk more about their ties to the games in the interview below:

The game shipped in Japan on Thursday, and it arrives in Europe on Friday and in North America on Sunday.

Thanks to Daniel Zelter for the news tip.

Update: Williams has a long beard because he is starring in the Broadway run of the play Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo.
