On one boring Sunday I turned on the TV. It happened to be on TV5 at that time and Independence Day was on. The movie had been dubbed in the Filipino language. I thought that I should give it a try.
The movie reached the part where Will Smith’s squadron was attacking the giant saucers and alien fighters were going after them. I waited how they would do “No. You did not shoot that green s#!t at me!” Green shit was translated/edited into “green laser.”
In other related thinking, the acronym “WTF” is actually shorter if translated into Tagalog. It’ll simply be “AK.” Go figure.
