I think a few other people would have been in on it.
It could just be a really bizarre coincidence. Like with Revolution No.9 or Stairway to Heaven. What was the exact line (forwards)?
What I can (shakes fist at weighted phrase filter.)
I think I have the DVD of that episode... I'll boot up PowerDVD tonight and run that scene backwards.

Wouldn't it be "lived eht era sdik4 dna ttenrub oeL?"
He says, "Leo Burnett and 4Kids are the devil! Leo Burnett-". It's interesting how things just don't sound "like they should" backwards.
And Jessie said something that sounds like, "We’re speaking backward. You know this is highly your better wish!" but it's definitely not as clear as James' "Leo Burnett" line.
Here's what I hear:
And the Boible, there’s negotiat- olse, nigai gookwee!
Do whatever you have to do to get that Pikachu!
We’re shpeakig backward. You know this is highly your better uisht!
Leo Burnett and 4Kids are the Devil! Leo Burnett–
Oorsht whatever you she!
Isn't that Engrish?Originally Posted by Kthleen
I'm guessing that's really not too unusual for in-jokes like that to pop up in stuff though. Videogame companies do that all the time.
In FFI on GBA, there's a gravestone in an elf town that reads "Here lies Link", and in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on the GBC (a great, book-canon based RPG that's worth sniffing out used, IMO), if you talk to one of the statues, it gets you into a secret portrait room with pics of the developers that you can talk to. Heck, even in Pokemon, no game's been complete without a roomful of Game Freak developers you can talk to.
Now that I've heard it I thought it was some Beatles' reference ... the whole "listen to their records backwards and you get secret messages B. S.". 4 Kids is stupid if they didn't figure it out.

Has anyone else noticed a weird progression in fanaticism as the generations progressed? Giovanni must define himself in the presence of the religious fanatics and the cruel sociopath....
Yeah, probably, but then again it wasn't intentional like James' "Leo Burnett" line was.Originally Posted by nekusagi-chan
