Icelandic TV mistakenly uses Sopranos subtitles for The Teletubbies

Recommended Posts

Ah! The Teletubbies.

The Teletubbies are broadcasted in Icelandic TV like in so many other places, however because of a mistake the channel that broadcasted the show accidentally used the wrong subtitles, so instead of showing the subtitles for the Teletubbies it instead used subtitles from The Sopranos instead. And thus the Teletubbies spent their time in the show talking about drugs and murder while the kiddies at home watched.

Here is an Icelandic news souce via Goggle Translate: http://translate.google.is/translate?sl=is&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fvisir.is%2Fhardskeyttur-lala-segir-po-til-syndanna-%2Farticle%2F2012121029337&act=url

I really love this shot that came with the news story:



In English, the subtitles says: "I know that you were high during my mothers funeral".

That combined with the red teletubbie just laying there like a stoner makes that image look hysterically funny to me.

The subtitles from the other screenshots from the news story are pretty funny as well. They say (from the the top one to the last one):

1. You are no longer good as a man.

2. Last week you killed my dog.

3. You killed my dog? Why did you do that?

4. He sat on him while high.

Thoughts?

Definitely not an accident.

It's still quite witty though.

Reminds me of that time when at some tv station here in the 'States, the audio for a Flintstones episode got played over the video of a porn channel.

Are you telling me that in Iceland even children's (in this case babies') shows get subbed and not dubbed? I'm feeling jealous.

I doubt it. The show doesn't need subtitles becasue the Teletubies don't actually talk.

I think this was a prank gone right.

Considering anyone old enough to both watch Teletubbies AND read the actual subtitles would be stoned out of their mind, I don't think that this is a bad thing. Lol
