It was bound to get into video games soon with all the geeks creating them who loved Star Wars as a kid. That's where I first heard it, of course, and as the Star Wars/Indy series wore on I recognized it each time.

It was some years before I found out its history.

I recently saw "Despicable Me" in the theater, and I am sure I heard the sound effect there, too.

So the craze goes on.

Long live The Wilhelm!

Doug, thanks - that's a scream! :)

Now I'll be listening for that in movies and games.

Yeah. Now it will be like someone saying "Whatever you do, DO NOT picture a blue elephant!"

Want to know something else that will stick in a magician's brain?? from now on, everytime you see 8:08 on a clock, it will remind you of a deck of Bicycle Poker cards. You've been warned.

If you're interested in that stuff, you can do/undo those associations pretty easily if you want. It's 808 and you won't hear that scream because instead it will be Ensign Chekhov's voice from a Star Trek episode.

Is it the Wilhelm Scream in here, too?

That would explain a lot.
