If you find yourself lost in the woods, what are some necessary steps you should take?

If you are YouTube user and unicyclist Trichromaticist, an appropriate first reaction would be to play “Saria’s Song” from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time—on an accordion.

It’s no ocarina, but it works in a pinch.

Trichromaticist uploaded the video of his rather scrub-free ride through the thick woods on July 20. While Saria herself has yet to react, Zelda fans certainly did, showering the multi-talented musician’s video with views and accolades.

“You win at life,” YouTube user YouFoundBen commented.

“You? better post more songs/vids…or they will come to get you in the night,” user niterich0 said.

Needless to say, upon being posted to Reddit, the video again exploded like a Wolfos at the end of Link’s sword.

“I want to be him when I grow up” redditor Komik3396 commented.

“Imagine this as a horror movie. A crazed ex-convict with a frozen grin and wide, blood-shot eyes who chases lost girls in the forest on a unicycle while playing the accordion, and when he catches them, he kills them. Jesus Christ that would be some scary shit” redditor FUCK_YOU_GLEN said.

Let’s hope that, if he encountered any temples in his later travels, Trichromaticist kept his accordion properly tuned for the occasion.
