The founder of Rare Entertainment Tim Stamper now finds himself in a sticky situation after Banjo-Kazooie’s big win against Link and Zelda to be named the best gaming duo by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, resulting in the executive being forced to lick a 25-year-old chocolate BAFTA statue.

Stamper made a bold statement earlier this week on Twitter, vowing to lick the statue if Banjo-Kazooie beat out the beloved characters from The Legend of Zelda in a poll to determine the “best gaming duo.” After more than 6,500 votes, Banjo-Kazooie finally took the win, raking in just over 53 percent of the votes, leaving Stamper to follow through on his promise.

The might of Banjo and Kazooie against the legends of Link and Zelda. There can only be one, but which duo will rise above all?” Stamper responded that “if Banjo-Kazooie wins, Grant Kirkhope and I will lick this 25-year-old chocolate BAFTA.” Fans were quick to remind Stamper of his promise, eagerly waiting for him to complete the challenge.
