I saw this and I thought they did a good job overall of soundalike casting. But the delivery was kinda boring. Still a great effort overall tho.

If you’re referring to the Backstroke of the West fandub, I don’t blame you. Those guys were probably do the best they could without bursting out in laughter.

I thought the dub was good kind of.

“The Backstroke of the West” was easily the best (and funniest) thing to come out of Revenge of the Sith, so I’m glad you guys made this thread. I wonder if someone here can release a fully mistranslated subtitle file for at least one of the movies.

I wonder what Siege of Mandalore, the ROTS Screenplay, 2D Clone Wars’ Battle of Coruscant, and deleted scenes might be “Backstroke of the West” style.

Here’s something from Attack of the Clones I translated a few years ago:

Stage 1(No translations):
Victory? Victory, you say? Master Obi-Wan, this is not victory. The shroud of the dark side has fallen. Begun, the clone war has.

Stage 2 (English-Spanish-English-Portuguese-English):
Victory? Victoria, you say? Master Obi-Wan, this is not victory. The black side shroud fell. It started, the clone war has.

Stage 3 (English-Spanish-English-Portuguese-English-French-German-English):
The victory? Victoria, you say? Master Obi-Wan, it is not a victory. The black shroud fell. It started, the clone war began.

Stage 4 (English-Spanish-English-Portuguese-English-French-German-English-Italian-Catalan-English-Czech-English-Hungarian-English):
Victory? Victoria, do you say that? Master Obi-Wan, this is not a win. The black coat fell. The beginning of the clone war began.

Stage 5 (English-Spanish-English-Portuguese-English-French-German-English-Italian-Catalan-English-Czech-English-Hungarian-English-Russian-Chinese-English):
Win? Victoria, do you say that? Master Obi-Wan, this is not a victory. The black jacket fell. The beginning of the clone war began.

Stage 6 (English-Spanish-English-Portuguese-English-French-German-English-Italian-Catalan-English-Czech-English-Hungarian-English-Russian-Chinese-English-Japanese-English-Arabic-Engish):
Wins? Victoria, do you have something like that? Mr. Obi - Wan. This is not a victory. A black jacket fell. The beginning of the war of cloning.

Stage 7(English-Spanish-English-Portuguese-English-French-German-English-Italian-Catalan-English-Czech-English-Hungarian-English-Russian-Chinese-English-Japanese-English-Arabic-Engish-Hebrew-Thai-English-Thai):
conductor? Victoria What are you doing? Mr. Obi Wan is not Jack Black’s victory. Mud Wars Start

You’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Am I making Carrie Fisher’s ghost proud?”
Well, are ya, punk?
