Yashichi of Kazuguruma

I bet Yashichi of
Kazuguruma looks
the same right now!

「かざぐるまのやしちも
 このざまだあ!」

Anyone have any idea what the hell this refers to. It sounds like a cultural reference that's way beyond me.

According to this, he's a fictional ninja in a Japanese TBS drama series about Mito Komon:

このざまだ can mean a few different things depending on the context, so you might want to make sure it fits the actual in-game context. I figure it's probably a quote of his from the drama, so depending on how you handle it, the details of his line might not matter anyway.

So to give more context, the main villain turned all the humans into brooms and dustpans. How this relates to this fictional ninja, beats me.
