What, no commercial?

Ah...abuse of omni-lingual establishments. Classic. I have fun constantly interchanging languages in mid conversation (or occasionally mid-phrase), since all my friends are at least bilingual English-French. It sure is fun to abuser ce fait, en particulier en ajoutant parfois des extraits d'autes langues que personne dans ma groupe connait, juste pour m'amuser even more. Good times...Good times...

Good video. Creative idea. Well done!

That was great, I would look out for a "We are Omnilingual!" sign just to do this kind of stuff.

Excellent choice of languages too. Klingon, Swedish Chef, Interpretative Dance, and even Binary were fantastic choices for the occasion.

Seems to me they could greatly streamline their customer service if they just hired Mr. Indutch, since he apparently understands a number of languages.

This video made my day. My favourite of this season so far. The cherry on top was using the Swedish chef, one of my favourite muppets!

I loved how you managed to keep the video compact, fluid and comprehensible.

Would like to register my great enjoyment of this video. I thought it very clever, and much admired the challenges you gave yourselves with it. Many giggles for this one.

Being something of a language-enthusiast (or freak, whichever way you want to put it) I absolutely loved this video. Also, to translate what PjotrMan said on the first page to a much more understandable language:

Actually, I just thought about that myself. At no point in the proceedings in the video would Matt's character actually have to understand any language other than English. No doubt this is more a symptom of wanting to make sure the audience could understand, but it's an interesting effect anyway.

EDIT: Oh wait no. I didn't pay enough attention. However, I do note that they forgot to get his name.

Actually considering his demeanor in the situation it almost seems that he might have been a former employee who got fired for his attitude to customer's stupidity. But this is mere speculation of course.

Small fixes. Otherwise that was pretty good. My commendations!

In terms of the video, I would also like to add that the language variation was pretty well balances (an Asian or African language would have been good too, though).

May I? "Groupe", in french, is masculine, so that's "que personne dans mon groupe ne connaît" because, yes, we throw a negative term "ne" in there. For Tim, that would give "Je ne sais pas tous les mots de la phrase, mais j'ai essayé". That was effectively well tried, I'm just doing my french-grammar nazi here.

I think there isn't so much french people watching the Watch... sorry, watching LoadingReadyRun. Someone to contradict me?

Regarding all you Dutch-peoples, the line I spoke was in Dutch:

Code: Select all

Zeer goed. Wanneer het onlangs werd vernieuwd?

Which should be an akward translation of "When did you last renew it?"

But I ran it through a German pronunciation guide, and that's why it came out that way. My apologies to the Netherlands.

Are you kidding? People would have a field day with that! He could well beat Paul in death threats after pulling that kind of stunt.

You are indeed correct. My french-grammar Communist is satisfied...for now.

I would like to request that Paul & Graham conduct many more videos in Jamaican slang.

Not to beat a dead horse, but I thought you were supposed to use the infinitive with avoir to indicate past tense, which is why I said "j'ai essayer." Why do you use essayé, instead?

Wow. just wow. Graham, your jamaican was fucking great. Otherwise, I cannot imagine how much work this was, but Morgan's universal language of interpretive dance was great and I loved the whole piece.

Great stuff guys, as usual. Kinda reminds me of Toilet Humor for some reason, except here the messing about is done by the customer rather than the service provider. Loved it.
