Well, my brother bought it and brought it over. But as soon as I saw it I yelled out an actual. WHAT THE FUCK!?

I am serious guys... I have no idea on what things are like for copyrighted materials but... check this out.

If you played FF9. You know who this is instantly.

I apologize for small image. But with a camera phone I got I had to do this and if you play Final Fantasy... I think you know which character this is.

Say hello to!

Yes that is right! Adelbert Steiner! I have ZERO idea on why he is on this firework and how he even got on the image. My guess is some kind of copyright infringement is going on with the firework company. Now sure, this was in fact the best fountain we had, funny enough. But still, quite funny it had a still image of this guy on it! Just thought I should share this with everyone.

What kind of a shitty phone do you have that can only output a 120x160 image?

If I saw fireworks with Reno and Rude on it, I'd buy it.

Just mail the gunpowder-smelling, burned-out remains to Square with a demand for a percentage of the settlement sum and hope for the best?

Wait... would I actually get money for uncovering this? Or... what? Because I am now tempted by greed suddenly.

If nothing else, they'd be...flashy.

I know Steiner! Too bad my PS1 disc #4 keeps freezing on me so I won't get to finish it until my brother gets up to where I was at on his laptop. Yes he downloaded the game illegally, but it's fair, we have 2 copies of the game and they both crapped out.

@Jay444111: Sorry - I sincerely doubt that, but it could always be fun to try!

I hope you haven't used it. It would be nice to get a picture of it that's bigger than a thumbnail.

@Jay444111: heh. People are just messing around. You would not get any money from turning in something like this. Copyright-infringing fireworks graphics are -extremely- common. Like, in my experience, more fireworks have infringing graphics than ones that don't. That's just how fireworks are. I mean, you're buying something at a roadside stand or a truck. What do you expect?

It's a funny little thing to find, but there is no value in it beyond some laughs.

I know. Once I looked at it I grabbed the game case and instantly compared them! Laughs were had!

How did your discs die? I am now kinda worried about some of my PS1 games suddenly.

Steiner was only good paired up with the mage guy.

Chinese fireworks have this stuff on them all the time. I had a firework once that not only featured a yellow Mega Man but a blue Zero. These fireworks companies out of China do not give a single fuck about copyright.

I can tell! Still, pretty crazy that a FF character is on this thing... Does this guys limit breaks involve purple crackling fire? Just wondering.

Firework companies don't give a FUCK about your video games. Seriously though, I can't imagine Square being able to do anything about this.

I came in thinking you had a giantbomb. I leave disappointed.
