    Default Pachinko's in movies

    So, I'm flipping channels and hit TBS and they were showing School of Rock and it was almost over. So I stopped and was watching and something caught my eye. So I kept watching. Yes there it was again. In the closing sequence, where they are in the 'afterschool program', a VINTAGE PACHINKO!

    It appears to be a Nishijin and possibly a C model but my reception was a little fuzzy.

    I knew I had to post this revelation. Then I thought, I wonder how many other movies/TV shows have a pachinko snuck into the shot? So I created this thread. If you know of show with a pachinko in it, let's post it here and see how many we can find.

    One rule, it can't be a show where a plot (or sub plot) is focused on pachinko in some manner. Just those where a machine sneaks into the shot. Fair enough?

    Oh yes!!

    Someone else that noticed it too, we must have good taste in Movies

    Yes i spotted that one a couple of years ago and posted about it, and I think the outcome was that it was a Vintage Heiwa

    Talking Re: Pachinko's in movies

    Lets see...there's the vintage that turns up in many episodes of Full House!!

    I posted pics once of a bunch of pachislos on Guiding Light once...

    Pachislos seem to turn up on lots of shows..Cheaper than real slots I guess and I doubt most people watching notice Well except us!!

    There are some more pachislos in the 2007 episode of Law and Order SVU "Responsible"

    And I think I posted pics of how they used pachislos in All the casinos in one GTA game..think it was San Andres..That one confuses me most...you spend millions making a game and you can put any kind of slot in all the American casinos and you choose pachislos!!!

    I also remember someone posted about a modern pachinko on a sports show in the background..I remember it was red!!

    Here is a pic that I found on the web. He is the one and only voice of all these cartoons. Here is a pic of his office. Look behind him. I belive his name is Mel Blancteaser.

    I have seen a few:
    In Kentucky Fried Movie they had one in the Cleopatra Schwartz segment.

    In Fright Night the lead has one in his bedroom.

    In the movie The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift there is a chase scene through a Pachinko parlor.
