Behind Evo 2011 troll promo

It was revealed today that Neidel "haunts" Crisan from iPLAYWINNER is the one who made the Evo 2011's troll promo video. (to build some hype)

In case you didn't follow the old posts. It seems like Evo organizers asked Daigo Umehara for a video message, then it was edited and an inaccurate subtitle was added to make it provocative.

From my old post
"....it was intentionally misinterpreted, from simple "I'm joining everyone, it'll be exciting (with old and new players)" into something rather hostile. Here's a hint, he ended his sentences with desu or masu, and use -san. That means he's using the polite form of the language."

Like I said before, it was fun and all (it'd be funnier if they did it on Kindevu) but many people misunderstand and think Umehara actually did the video and said what they read (the subtitle). He then ended up being a public enemy in some MvC3 community, and I actually saw some hater talking about shooting him for real. (It's almost like something that you can send to the police, but I was taught that violence and jealousy is a norm in American fighting game community so I just ignored it.)

Without edit? It'll surely look like the Kuwait promo.

This post is just for a reference in the future.
