Pirates of the China Seas

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 2:13 pm

More fun with hilariously mangled bootleg DVDs: check out the nonsensical subtitles and blurbs found on a bootleg version of Pirates of the Caribbean.

And via BoingBoing, a column by blogger Jon Rahoi on Chinese bootleg DVDs, featuring some great photos of the insane Engrish that shows up on them.


  1. For the curious, the billing block at the bottom of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” bootleg is for “Raiders of the Lost Ark” and the synopsis on the back is for a Hong Kong movie called “The Bride With White Hair”.

    BTW, when I try to post a comment to a short post like this, the gray bar on the right covers up part of the “Your comment” box.

  2. Hmm… what browser are you using, anyway? The comment box looks absolutely fine in Mozilla Firefox.

  3. I use IE 6.0.

    This is interesting… I just noticed that the comment box is just the right size until I type something in it, at which point it becomes roughly the width of the window so that the grey bar overlaps it. This is true regardless of how big the window or the screen resolution is — it always fits just right before typing, but becomes the width of the window when typing.
