What if the movie Titanic was translated into Japanese with a crappy online translator then translated back into English? Japanese Titanic, that's what.

Yeesh. For once, the YouTube comments are funnier than the video. Including the ones trying to sell stuff.

4.3 million views since *June 28th*? Why??

I love these. I saw a bootleg version of a Harry Potter movie that was dubbed in Chinese with subtitles translated back into English. There was a very long scene where Harry and Snape professed their mutual respect and love for each other. Maybe this treatment will finally render this movie watchable for me.

Oh, it gets much better after 30 seconds, zardoz. You should have stuck with it.

entropicamericana, I figured it's possible someone here has not seen the glory that is TBotW and if so this must be remedied at once.

God! I want to slit my wrists by saw the drek!

OK, I'll give you that most of this video is just played out "so funny we be must, sound like drunk, I yoda" Chingrish humor.....

But... the end.... Oh my god. For me, the last scene more than makes up for the beginning (and is probably funnier as a result). That was absolutely hilarious.

A++ would watch again!

and I think I shall

Whew, that was a tough one to get through.

Oddly, I was mostly amazed that the translation maintained so much of the meaning, despite the dopiness. Machine learning FTW

There are languages from which machine translation is pretty good. Not perfect of course, but Spanish you don't have to perform many mental contortions at all to figure out the original meaning.

Japanese is not one of those languages.

The first 30 seconds were painful, and the rest of it was too. If they had talked like people instead of weird stilted kindergarteners, that might've helped it be less awful to watch.

And there are people who think these machines will be ready to contain their immortal consciousness, any day now.

"Please, may now I singularity you?"
"Yes. Gutter rat whore me, and I shall bliss."

Not quite excruciating, but cringeworthy.
posted by Pudhoho at 4:34 PM on July 16, 2013


Yes, cringeworthy is the right word for it. I think it would have been funnier if they had put the captions against the original clips, as in the Backstroke of the West.
