Interpolation? Sample? of the Week

In what I hope sparks some discussion and debate I thought we'd revisit a Timbaland track whose sample has long been discussed and spoken about. Omarion's "Icebox" and the famous piano melody. Most people say it's from a video game whether it be some level on Zelda, the soundtrack of Chrono Trigger, or an old school Batman game and all agree Timbo, or rather King in this case, interpolated what they heard when creating the piano melody.
