We were kicking it in the WatchLOUD headquarters earlier this morning when we decided to turn the subtitles on for our big TV monitor (aren’t we cool?) which plays our YouTube channel. There isn’t any sound, so we just wanted to see what people were saying, but looking at the screen, the subtitles weren’t making any sense.
It seems that when you turn on Closed Captioning on YouTube (that little “CC” button in the bottom right) for rap interviews, it generates subtitles that are so far off, they actually make the interviews ten times funnier. Here’s what we mean:
He was saying you’ve gotta have some “irony” in music, but the only irony here is that Jay is about to get sued by an Egyptian composer for a sample in “Big Pimpin.”
French Montana was talking about “not knowing no English,” but YouTube apparently got the gist.
This actually reads like Young Thug lyrics so it gets a pass.
So that’s what Bow Wow has been up to…
Man, it’s spelled RIGHT THERE.
What Gates really said was, “If you have a conversation with Plies, he’s a very intelligent brother,” but this kinda works too.
They did Angela Yee dirty.
OK, this could also be something Raekwon actually said as well.
Yeah you didn’t know Plies drops jewels about colonization and apostates in his interviews, did you?
