...*head tilts so far to the side that neck snaps* Gah!

Okay, I apoligize in full for doubting you on this, nickzambuto. In my and others defense though, this just sounds completely implausible in all sorts of ways...and yet, here it is. Existing. Right before my very eyes.

...It's too early in the morning. I can't even properly process this. I, just...WOW. :lol:

Wow..this is Cringy. I mean, it's OK for the American market and for Funi's dub fans, but for others it's painful to watch.

I was expecting something else...and not a dubbed over scene (Well, technically is a Dub over a Dub) from the Anime.

I got home late last night from the Star Wars movie and figured I'd Youtube the new kingdom hearts 3 trailer and that ad started playing and I was like wuuuut haha :)
The Dragonboxes are like a middle aged woman who still looks good through simply taking good care of her skin and body with maybe a tiny bit of makeup while the Orange Bricks are like a middle aged woman who get's 50 tons of botox, makeup and plastic surgery in order to look younger and as a result looks even worse. ~ ringworm128

I thought it was cool. It remind me of the good old days of DBZ on TV with these types of ads.

Looks like they used the Orange Brick footage rather than the Kai ones. With the resurgence of the franchise since Resurrection 'F' came out, i'm sure the series popularity in North American and Japan would rise back up from the ashes.

EDIT: Did they utilize Nadolny's voice instead of Clinkenbeard's?

That's so killer, I don't even know what's possible or not possible for this franchise anymore. As far as I'm concerned literally anything is fair game at this point.

Sonny Strait confirmed it to be Colleen's voice.

Also, this exists. I'm still trying to wrap my head around that.

You're not alone there. Every time my brain comes back to this, I have to remind myself that it's an actual thing that exists, not just the product of a daydream I had or something.

I...just...what even is this world. :lol:

Does it? It looks like season set Blu-ray to me. Which makes sense, since it needs to air in HD.

Wow... this is just so bizarre. Could it be a local ad for Texas or something? I'd love to find out more about this.

Also, the fan in me can't help but laugh at Krillin wanting to wish for a car rather than bringing Piccolo back. :lol:

This seems like something TFS would do.

At least the guys at Ford wouldn't mind if they got permission from Toei Animation to use that footage in a legal way. Seeing a Dragon Ball-related ad in North America is rarer these days as in Japan which they advertise more (Discross, Heroes, Smiles for All, etc...)

Yeah this is the type of thing that you would see it back in 1997-2001 during the prime days of DBZ.

Maybe they're figuring people who watched DBZ on Toonami are in their mid 20s now and looking for a car like this.
