That face

// Dale North
Check out these Japanese ladies playing the P.T. "interactive trailer" that was released this week at gamescom. I think they're all hilarious but I love the face the one lady makes at 0:46. She's like, oh sh*t. Then, oh SH*T. And then there's the one lady later on that gives no f*cks at all. She's also great.

Smooth McGroove does it again with this wonderful arrangement of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link's Temple/Palace Theme. This man is a bundle of talent and I can't wait to see his next new take on an old classic. As a rule, YouTube personalities don't normally impress me in this manner, but I've enjoyed Smooth's takes on classic gaming tunes. Perhaps it'll brighten your day a bit as well.
