Exported TV & Movie Titles That Got Lost In Translation!!!

Loads of your favourite TV shows and movies are exported to many non-English speaking countries, and often the title has to be adapted to make sense to the people of that country. However, it seems quite often something gets lost in translation. Amongst the best example of this is the Japanese title for 'Jersey Shore', 〜マカロニ野郎のニュージャージー・ライフ〜, which loosely translates to 'The New Jersey life of the Macaroni Assholes'! A title that actually manages to be more offensive than the show itself.

So turn off that episode of 'Cube Heads', place the DVD of 'A Very Powerful Whale Runs To Heaven' back in it's case and take a seat, because we've gathered up a huge collection of the very best translated titles for you to marvel at. And when we're done, does anyone fancy binge watching 'In The Shoes Of Satan'?..
