Peeps have gotten pretty riled up after watching Sony’s new commercial, which features Justin Timbersnake and Peyton “If there’s a commercial nearby, I’ll be in it” Manning speaking “Mandarin” over a competitive ping pong match.
But after watching the spot, we realized that all the wacky flurryfaloo is actually the result of those darn subtitles being written up incorrectly! Yup, it may have seemed like the guys were ching-chonging us with Mandaran-ish gibberish, but that’s just not so! Nuh uh!
How do we know? We asked a linguistics expert, a guy we
found on the street like to call Mandarin Mike.
Now that we think about it, this commercial is freaking hilarious.
