I don't recall if anyone posted on this already, but my wife and I went to see the movie Logan last week and I noticed that, at least twice, during the scene where the girl steals from a convenience store you can hear Donkey Kong sound effects in the background.

An interview I did in Japan.

A few mistranslations here, but mentions of Jeremy Young, Robbie Lakeman, Billy Mitchell, and Hank Chien.

Is there an English translation of this?  Also, how does the popularity of DK in Japan compare to the US?  Doesn't seem to be as big.  Is there a competitive scene and if so why doesn't it seem to be integrated with the scene in the US/West?

If you load it into Chrome it should auto translate - it's a lil off but that makes it funny as hell!

I had noticed that the release of the original Donkey Kong arcade game to the United States was not acknowledged in the Associated Press' "Today in History" article for the second day of June for this calendar year (it was usually acknowledged in previous "Today in History" articles for the second day of June in previous calendar years).
