Computer madness

Downfall (Der Untergang in German) is a terrific film, but who knew people would have fun turning chilling scenes into computer-related pariodies courtesy of fake subtitles?

In terms of hilarity and obscenity, this one is the funniest:

Which has a continuation:

Although this one comes close, and adheres closer to the German dialogue noises:

And this one takes more liberties with the scenes:

And this just gets too gamey:

And this, too!

And for non-gamers, this one about a missing car:

    These remind me of the totally hilarious “bad Chinese-translation subtitles” version of the Lord of the Rings trilogy that were circulating around the online world when those movies were all the rage.

    Absolutely hilarious! Thanks for sharing some of the lighter side of life!

    What’s so obscene about it?

    In case anyone needed the links to the engrish subtitles for the LOTR movies:

    The Two Towers

    Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers

    MLQ3,

    This is a very serious fun.

    Although unrelated to your subject, out of “bottled” anger, I have to respond.

    bryan, just the language.

    IMHO, funniest line in first video…

    ..I mean how much fun can you have with super f*cking Mario running around as a mad Italian jumping on god damn turtles..

    On a related vein, here’s another classic Engrish subtitled movie scene:

    Darth Vader’s infamous “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO O!” towards the end of Revenge of the Sith was problably translated to ‘bu yao’ (literally ‘ayaw’ or ‘do not want’) and directly translated back to English.

    • BrianB on November 18, 2007 at 2:54 pm

    MLQ,

    I hear language like this every day at work.

  5. wow. tnx Manolo. for a while, the whole of my innards was lying open for the world to see. idk why i was squeamish. some things are just too personal (even for me) to publish.

    Gawd. even my wife hasn’t read that. I only meant to send it to my best friend.

  6. this is funny. I’m assuming the author’s name is Carlos Malvar. the script is not solid film-wise, but it can be remedied. much of the humor will be lost along the way if this is used as the final script.

    Devils, let me tell you a true story that happened maybe 4-5 years ago. I was in Manolo’s mailing list for the Philippine Jacobins I think it was. Well, someone got a virus and infected my computer. This particular virus is real special because besides destroying my hard drive it sent random files from my desktop to all the addresses in my outlook express (that’s why I never use outlook anymore). A day later, I got hundreds of emails from various strangers and acquaintances. Apparently some of them received an aching love letter (part of a story I was working on) from me. My only consolation was that the love letter was apparently good because I got tons of numbersand pictures of pretty ladies via email.

    that’s a spooky story, bryan. sorry to hear that happened to you.

    • BrianB on November 19, 2007 at 1:57 pm

    Yep, should’ve cashed out. I mean, regarding the women.

    • BrianB on November 19, 2007 at 2:00 pm

    And Devils, I never read the entry. Too lengthy. I guess it’s deleted now.

    bryan, nod.

  7. mlq3, thanks for sharing this; I never thought anybody could make Der Untergang funny. For more funny vids on youtube, may I recommend Bill Bailey’s Chaucer pub gag and the musical skit “Everone’s a lawyer”? They’re really good.

  8. BrianB, lols. yeah, shuda cashed out. if you’re really careful abt it, you needn’t worry abt viruses, trojans and such. my friend (who’s a computer genius) even says he doesn’t bother with anti-viruses. he just switches on his firewall and that’s it. he says most security attacks can be avoided if you have sensible surfing and download practices.

    and if you hate lengthy, then don’t bother reading the link I posted above. that one rivals the Great Wall of China in its lengthiness. but its funny nonetheless. not a workable script. but funny.

  9. Hahahaha! LOL! and here i was, thinking nothing could top the “Go, Bords” lampoon of 300 🙂

    • BrianB on November 19, 2007 at 10:02 pm

    That Ilonggo parody of 300 is a classic.

  10. I usually don’t have the patience to watch so many videos at one time but this was well worth it. Thanks

    In the past we noted that a Facebook group isn’t really the best tool for a long-term group conversation. They tend to die-off after a little bit of time. But, if you have an event, with a date attached to it, Facebook seems to work wonders: It’s quick, easy and free.
