Lost in Translation: The Shineray Transformer

One of our favorite shows here at Asphalt & Rubber is SPIKE TV’s MXC (Most Extreme Elimination Challenge). It takes Japanese game show Takeshi’s Castle, and dubs over it with American announcers who have more than a sense of humor.

The show, if not entertaining and mildly culturally offensive, is a lesson that some things don’t carryover from one culture to another, and we still have a lot to learn about each other in this big wacky world.

The following video from Chinese manufacturer Shineray Motorcycles exemplifies this phenomenon further, and shows that the motorcycling isn’t immune to some of these cultural quirks. More than meets the eye follows after the jump.







If anyone can translate what’s being said, we’d love to know.
