BAIPA member Tom Finnegan has submitted some more fun bloopers. Got any of your own? Please send and we will post them!
Bloopers from the subtitling for the documentary film Best of Enemies (2015):
— Several spellings of “Ronald Regan” in the subtitling.
(Who knows? Perhaps the president thought it would be fun to play, with his secretary of state and White House chief of staff, Donald Reagan, the school kid prank of name switching.)
— Mentions of “the Viet Kong” in several places.
(If the company hired to do the subtitling continues to get contracts, we may soon see references to the giant gorilla of Hollywood fame, Cing Cong. Or is that the giant guerrilla?)
— “The morays of the country are going to hell.”
(As behavior worsens, we’ll probably see a virtual catalogue of social eels.)
