Hmmm... Maybe Craig just doesn't feel like talking? Has motor mouth Corey ever thought of that? :whistle:

If I may just direct your attention to this exquisite piece of cartoon entertainment (the background being that Bruce Wayne has lost his memory and thinks he's a top mobster), with special emphasis on the lyrics:



If you're not sure what's so special about the lyrics let me quote the most prominent comment:

"After watching this, I have no excuse for not watching Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Any show that can get that many penis jokes past the censors deserves my undivided attention."

The lyrics are given in the description box.

I don't drink Faygo but this shit was ridiculously funny. :lol: Also, that bit at the end sounds a bit like the old school Sega logo.

Ah, these horrible Japanese subs. All the love they apply to Anime is completely lost in live-action dubs. The same handful of voices for all roles.

Also, the change in words since when i went to look for the meaning of the word "koshinuke", it didn't stand for "chicken" as one would originally believe. Instead, it means "coward".

Another bummer is the need to change the chicken clucking sound, sounds more like a parrot trying to imitate a chicken with this dub. :wtf:

Well, if you call a person a chicken you indirectly (?) call that person a coward by doing so. If you have better ideas how to translate the original choice of word without going too far astray from the meaning go ahead and tell me.
Let me say a few words about the difficulties. For anybody unfamiliar with the English language this scene is difficult to fully understand, because translation is difficult due to cultural differences. In English you have "coward = chicken". Alright, no problem. What kind of metaphor do you use in Spanish? In German, e.g., it's "coward = rabbit". In fact, the German version of Back to the Future 2 used the expression "Du feige Sau!" = "You cowardly pig!". We do not consider pigs being cowards, but in casual language (in a way "mildly offensive", maybe) "pig" is a standard term to convey disapproval of some person's behavior. At the same time the rabbit idiom ("Angsthase") has a connotation too cute to really fit into these hoodlum's language (compare "scaredy-cat"). Unlike "pig" you don't use it to blatantly offend your opponent but to belittle him.

The Japanese had no reason to use this sound effect because they do not share the "chicken connotation", so I guess it's the original sound effect of the English version. It's probably even meant to sound shitty because the sound is produced electronically, and if it came across too realistically the intended "cyber effect" would be lost.

I'd say it's "so-so". Doesn't really do it for me.
