Ocarina of Time speedrun uses controller coated in honey


Oh God, why?

A Twitch user by the name of Moltov is currently live-streaming a speedrun of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Sounds pretty old hat, right?

Oh how wrong you are. Because Moltov is doing a speedrun with a Wii classic controller covered in honey. A controller covered in honey.

What was the thought process leading to this decision? Did Moltov expect an added challenge? Is this some weird intersection of gaming and outsider art? The mind, it is boggled.

I assume that the fact that Moltov has to repeatedly dip the controller into a bowl of honey is because he needs to give it a periodic re-coating of the bee goo. It kind of makes me want to vomit everywhere.

If you are morbidly curious, please check out the livestream.
