An ad stressing the importance of good translation, and various other animations, ads and announcements. Flash, in Russian, but generally funny & self-explanatory.

I'm going to have to disagree on both counts.

And here I was hoping for a twist ending, stressing the importance of good translation (as opposed to bad translation). Fie.

Good to see our old pal racial stereotyping is alive and well and living in russia.

C_D's link is audibly NSFW but hilarious.

I've learned that all black people are stupid ugly cannibals, and that skinny blonde women with laptops want to have sex with them. Or something like that.

Good Lord. Where did it say that? Are you sure you're not suffering from an overheated imagination?

I agree with most of the comments on here. I think it was slow and boring and just reconfirmed stereotypes about savage dark people living in the jungle. Now C_D's link... hilarious!

The only really funny part was the subtitles. "Gachooka Bachooka" indeed...

Yes, that link reinforced stereotypes about cannibals so terribly. The cartoon should definitely have made them look more realistic

Jesus Christ, this is the side of "liberalism" that really gets up my person.
