I think with these memes, they're trying to target the DBZ nerd who spends his time online and knows about this stuff. But, really, they're just pissing the DBZ nerds off.

Also that Piccolo was horrible. He's normally a lot more gruff and growly.

I fail to see how Sabat doing his usual "gruff and growly" thing for Piccolo would make his voice somehow better. That's the single most abrasively irritating aspect about his Piccolo voice to be honest, and it's a vocal trait that was NEVER a part of Piccolo's character outside of the FUNi dub. It doesn't help that its always sounded incredibly phony and preposterously overdone, to the point of self-parody. If he's dropped it from any future voicing of Piccolo, count me as being glad to see it gone and considering it a step in the right direction.
Yeah, Piccolo never screams unnecessarily and makes the facial expression showing that he was supposed to be screaming :roll:

Sabat's current Piccolo (when he isn't half-assedly doing one quick take), has become a low, calm, whisper instead of the more Lanipator-esque bark that Lani parodies...

He's been using that Piccolo voice since the Ultimate Uncut episodes. It's at its best in the first 3 movies.

I'd argue he started that voice right after he fused with Kami in the Cell saga.

I definitely noticed that when I first watched my Season Five set. I thought it had been re-dubbed at first, but then I could tell that he had, in fact, modified his voice for the character at that point.

I don't think that one's widely known enough to where many people would get it, though.

Hopefully after "Its power is maximum" they'll have run out of memes and start using references to DBZ Abridged instead.

What? Yes it is, it's used in a lot of YouTube Poops as well.

It's just that none of us use it I think... It's not something you can just blurt out like over 9000 or balls being inert.

I kinda hope they go with "I HOPE MY BODY CAN TAKE THE DRAGON BALL Z DRAGON BOX!" somehow... doesn't have to be Sean Schemmel doing it, I'd take Chris Sabat doing it...

I'd also love:

Wow... Unreal, My Gosh... THE DRAGON BOX IS AMAZING! IT LOOKS GREAT! YES YES YES YES! IT TOTALLY WINS! YES!
I'M WIDE AWAKE!


CAT LOVES THE DRAGON BOX, YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH!

Oooor

Dude, if that is not the Dragon Box then I will eat the hat that I am wearing.


I'm all for memes in the trailers now...

I found it amusing that the background music was a cheap stylistic copy of CHA-LA. Also, that Piccolo voice is dreadful; there's little-to-no emotion in it at all, and it hardly sounds as I remember Piccolo in the dub. Pretty bad advertisement, honestly.

Hoping to get some more details on the release soon, though!

Winnar is yuo.

Seriously, I guess it's cool that FUNi is utilizing stuff that came from the fandom (albeit about 3 years ago), but...it'll get old quick.

Edit: Let's really go old school and have a Psaros commercial:

<Kuririn> The new DragonBox is so mondo cool, you'll want to go around smothering random old people! "Who's in the house Grandpa? Who's in it?!" DragonBox, that's who!

The Dragon Box makes no changes to the colors of the original Japanese film masters...so beer isn't blue!
I can see their parachutes.
