Google Translate, we love you, but you suck

In today’s internet-driven world, many of us who are in contact with languages online have experimented with Google Translate. And we have found that, at times, those experiments are… well, failures. I’ve had conversations in Japanese in which I knew the person was using Google Translate to communicate. It was… confusing to say the least.

You can’t really fault the technology, though. The programming just cannot capture the intricacies of language needed to do proper translations. Yet, anyway.

And now, enter the video that demonstrates this in an absolutely hilarious way. Enjoy! (And I dare you to resist the subliminal message at the end of the video… I dare you!)


This seems to be a trend; found quite a few videos based on this Google Translate concept. Check them out of you want a laugh!
