At this point, we're all aware that there are plenty of different things to see and do in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, along with an equal number of ways to have fun simply exploring Hyrule and messing about with the world around you. Having said that, here's something we'd never have thought to try in 10,000 heroic years.

YouTube user ThornyFox has posted a video showing one heck of a journey through Hyrule's grassy fields and rocky hills, where Link decides to put saving the world aside to bend the rules of space and time. Remember the Old Man, who you first meet right at the start of the game? Well, what if we told you that there were actually multiple versions of the Old Man, and that they could meet each other?

"The old man you meet in each location is a completely different NPC," ThornyFox explains. "He just has a bunch of clones to make it look like he gets around fast! So I took the old man to meet another version of himself. It's a family reunion!"

How do you take an NPC to a different location? Well, you spend ages sprinting directly into them to nudge them a few pixels at a time. Here's what happens when one Old Man meets another:

Was all that effort worth it? Probably not. But hey, here's yet another example of something we didn't know you could do in this monster of a game!
