Uematsu theme in a banned commercial

Okay, this is completely inappropriate to post, as it was a banned commercial due to the overt sexuality.

BUT.

I think, that at 0:16, there may have been an homage to a composer most of us know and love. ...Intentional? It's pretty coincidental, for a sequence of 8 notes like that. But it's possible I suppose.

Okay before I actually post the link to the commercial I'm disclaiming, it's of two scantily clad ladies just about to kiss. It was banned for a reason!

Please don't ban me too. :/

And then I realized that the chord progression from Chrono Cross's Another World is the same progression as the chorus from Peace of Mind by Boston, and life was never quite the same.

Oh, whoops. It was my intention to listen to the music, but when the video started that never happened.

Time to watch it again!

The small violin higher/lower notes descending (like 9 6 7 4 5 2 3 0etc) melody/lead voice?
Didn't make me think of Uematsu, and it's something (that kind of pattern) that is in every genre of music quite commonly so no I don't hear the similarity to him in particular. Maybe if you indicated what piece it actually reminded you of... as Uematsu has reached the 1000+ pieces mark if you count his side projects too |:

I didn't mind rewatching (I mean, relistening ofc) just to verify my statement so don't worry!

Ah, okay:

-it is note-for-note identical (not merely "similar") to the main riff of a piece Uematsu wrote for a very famous RPG--though perhaps in a different key.
-I have to guess that over 90 percent of the regulars here have played the game.
-yeah, I mean the descending violin line from 0:16 to 0:18 in the commercial.

[edit] well, Salem guessed it in chat. Anyone else? :D

Yeah I mis-titled the thread. Obviously it is in no way "his" commercial. But I didn't know what else to use for a title without giving away the connection. I wanted people to be able to hear it for themselves if they could!

[edit] I just changed the title to be more accurate.

Yeah I kind of doubt it's intentional as well, tbh, but I still think it's really cool! I also once noticed an exact similarity between a musical theme playing during an episode of Smallville, and "Prisoners of Fate" from Chrono Cross.

[edit] PS I hope this didn't offend...the lasciviousness was actually a deterrent to me posting. I just thought the music thing was cool enough to warrant risking it.
