The song that plays in the options menu of Snk vs Capcom – Millenium Fight 2000 has a sample of a Brazillian Beer TV AD Commercial.
While at the options menu, you can hear somebody say “Kaiser, uma grande cerveja, a cerveja dos momentos felizes” sampled in the middle of the music, meaning “Kaiser, a great beer, the beer of the happy moments” during the music, which was the beer’s cathphrase at the time.
I couldn’t find any good copies of the video online, so i made my own:
I couldn’t find the actual beer commercial anywhere, but you can totally hear it in the background.
I’ve always wondered how the hell that showed up there, but nobody knew back then.
Searching for the video on the web today to post it here, I found that, apparently, that music was made by a Brazillian DJ and that song used to play a lot in a Brazillian Radio Station in Japan. Apparently, it was a very successful song and capcom, somehow, got a hold of a copy and put it in the game. The person that said that went saying that the actual DJ emailed capcom to ask for a explanation and that’s what they gave him.
I never heard that song before (I live in Brazil) and why did the DJ mail Capcom, instead of suing their asses? That’s a very debatable answer but hey.. at least it makes sense.
