TGIF: A Wicked Deception June 22, 2012

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff, TGIF.

I posted this video back in July 22, 2008, but it deserves some fresh attention. It’s just too funny to languish in the archives.

This film by Matt Sloan capitalizes on Babelfish for its dialog. It translates from English into French and German, then back into English. It was filmed on location in Trouville, France. Enjoy!

“I want to neglect the remainder of my life with you!”

We watched this at our company’s monthly meeting. So funny!

Hahaha! Very funny, indeed. Thanks for sharing the video.

This video is awesome – a hilarious and clever business case for why software for language translation and even language learning sounds good, but always falls short of the mark.

Love it! I actually had not seen this (where have I been?) — too funny. Thanks for sharing.
