Oh, yeah, I've seen one of those ads on TV. Both my brother and I just turned to the TV and then to each other and was like, "Wait, what?"

Ironically though, I have that chime as my notification tone on my phone, so when I was watching the video just now, I was a bit confused for a second before realizing, lol.

omg what is this :vlol:

I have a theory
The TR2 Secret chime was actually not made by core, they got it from somewhere else, but we know it as the iconic secret chime :admles:

I noticed it too! First, It really got in my nerves the fact that they're using it in a out of context way, like in a stupid commercial. That Short little piece is SACRED, not some stupid elevator chime to fool around.
However, I like to think that the man who came up the ideia, shares, like us fans, incredible nostalgic memories of the game and that be the reason behind it.
Everytime it cames up on tv, instantly reminds me of the iconic "a-ha".

Is it a royalty-free sound effect? Like, is it no longer owned by Eidos or Square or Core or whatever?

The TR I-III menu sounds are also used pretty often in German TV shows (mostly the "open/close menu" sound is used for transition shots). I'll ask Nathan McCree if he knows that TV producers are using TR sound effects. Maybe some of them haven't been made by him, so who knows?

Every time I listen/see these really stupid commercials on tv, I just want to ask them if they have permission to use the "Secret Found" track from TR1-3, because I honestly believe they don't (I just heard it now, while typing the post -.-).Needless to say I'm always pretty annoyed every time it comes up. Especially because those commercials aren't funny at all. Luckily I haven't seen them, lately.

However, I like to think that the man who came up the ideia, shares, like us fans, incredible nostalgic memories of the game and that be the reason behind it.

I don't know. Considering that in a portuguese talkshow, a video introducing a person's issues featured the Sailor Moon music box theme, because according to the editor "it was pretty", without knowing where it was from, I wouldn't be surprised if the people involved in that commercial didn't know, nor care about the game.

I chatted with Nathan McCree and he isn't sure if it's legal that they used the secret tune in the commercial. He'll forward this to Square Enix since by now the TR soundtracks are their property.

That's pretty special that they use that secret chime from TR's 1-3 in that commercial. Even if they used the secret chime for 4 and 5 is still special and 6 don't have secrets.
