Excitebike Reference on LoZ:MM
When playing Majora's Mask and you come across Keaton, he'll ask a series of questions. A sound is made signaling whether you got a question correct or incorrect. The sound that is made when you get a question correct is the same sound made when you pause the game in the middle of a race on Excitebike. And, of course, both games were made by Nintendo. If you don't have the games or emulators, here are two You Tube references-

The first video makes this sound about 3 seconds in and it is made several times in the second video.

This is a great piece of trivia, but I just wanted to make sure you knew to submit trivia to the actual site, as creating a thread does not count as submitting the trivia.
Hit the submit trivia button, type in your trivia. You can use this thread as a reference.

He has, I asked him to post his sources here, as it required 2 video links :)

On our friend's settee, she told me that she really liked me
And I said, "Cool... the feeling's mutual"
We played old 45's, and said it's like the soundtrack to our lives
And she said, "True, it's not unusual" - then privately we danced
We couldn't seem to keep our balance... A drunken haze had come upon us

We sank down to the floor, and we sang a song that I can't sing anymore
And then we kissed, and fell unconscious...
I woke up the next day, all alone but for a headache
I stumbled out to find the bathroom...
But all I found was her, wrapped around another lover
No longer then is he our mutual friend

Thanks for the help. What I think is really funny is that MM is around 13 years old and Excitebike is around 26 years old. And I accidentally recognized the sound when my 20 month old niece hit the pause button while I was playing an emulator i recently downloaded on my phone and MM is my favorite Zelda game behind ALttP.

Holy Crap. That's a cool piece of trivia. I love finding out sounds or effects were reused from older games, and this is one of the few that I never knew.

I believe this sound effect (or a variant) is actually used in several NES games, often for pausing. The first ones that comes to mind are the Super Mario Bros. 1 and 3 pause sounds:

I assure you, there will be quality. Immense quantities of quality!

I flagged this piece of trivia asking if this needed to be altered to point out Spherix's finding.
