No, that was just some stock music. I've watched the FUNI dub in it's entirety more than once, so I would've recognized it if it was. I will say though that the electronic booping sounds near the end of it were very reminiscient of the score though! It's possible they wanted something in the style of the Team Faulconer OST? Who knows :P ?

This looks really cool, and props for getting the dub cast to do it, but man the footage looks like complete garbage. All those missing lines, especially on Goten and Trunks.

Sucks that this is what we're stuck with.

Yeah, people really shouldn't be complaining about this... They definitely didn't have to do this, and everyone should be glad that they did. It brings more attention to the series.

Why do I get the feeling we are being watched? :lol: What I really think is, the first one was innocent: The creators of the commercial are honest to goodness fans and had a chance to make a car commercial showing that. This one though: Ford is gauging our reactions-they wonder could they seriously use anime as a niche market for American advertisement. :P

But I'm positive overall. I like the attention. Now we just need Rainbow Dash trying to sell me on vegan and 2016 will be on the right path to awesome.

This one wasn't as good. Roshi is the only one who said anything that wouldn't fit normally. Bit disappointed.

Definitely not as good as the first one. Concept is cute but the execution is a bit lacking

This ad is very cringe worthy. Why did they bother doing this.
DBZ is my childhood. I have recordings from the good ole Toonami days. I treasure them dearly.
