A FAMILY FROM CHILE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF DRAGON BALL Z TO PROMOTE THEIR GAS BUSINESS, AND THAT WAS THROUGH A FUNNY COMMERCIAL
The introduction or opening of Dragon Ball Z is legendary for many anime fans. It is the classic Cha-La Head-Cha-La, which was composed by Chiho Kiyooka and written by Yukinojo Mori.
It was after Kenji Yamamoto debugged it through some fixes. While in Japan it is sung by Hironobu Kageyama, in Spanish it was taken over by the late Mexican singer Ricardo Silva Elizondo, who sadly passed away this year.
THE INTRODUCTION OF DRAGON BALL Z IS VERY POPULAR
Silva’s performance became legendary and is beloved throughout Latin America. There is no lack of convention that is enlivened by this song, which has maintained its popularity over time.
Obviously, there are many free interpretations, such as the one made by a Chilean family and that accompanies this note. What happens is that they came up with the idea of doing a commercial where several members appear promoting their business.
It is a gas distribution company that they jokingly baptized as Dragon Gas Z, in reference to Dragon Ball Z. In order to sing this song they had to adjust the original lyrics a bit.
Apparently, this gas company is located in Santiago, the capital of Chile. From what you can see, the truck is adorned with an image of Goku turning into a super saiyan, and holding two gas tanks with each of his hands.
DRAGON GAS Z IS A CHILEAN FAMILY BUSINESS
What we don’t know is how old the video is, because the quality is not very good. But it is clear that not much, since links to social networks are mentioned.
Likewise, at the WhatsApp service, so that those interested can call for a gas tank. Although many people receive it via pipes, or through pipes that fill stationary tanks, this way of distributing it is common.
People find it more practical to have one or more tanks in their homes, and thus stock up on this fuel. So Dragon Gas Z meets the needs of many people.
Perhaps this video has not gone viral so far – it has just over 4,000 views – but many people are already aware of its service. One more sample of how much Dragon Ball Z has impacted Latin American fans, more than its sequel.
