Aye, and that seems to be the solution most companies take when doing a dub. "Look, they're popular, let's use them for the main cast!" I suppose the same thing is done in Japan at least from time to time, but over there it seems to actually work more often than not.

That fandub is definitely among the better I've heard, the only problem being that to me, hearing some of the names and suffixes coming from them sounded a bit odd. However, definitely better than some professional tracks I've sat through, and I could certainly live with it as the official dub if they touch up their act a bit.
