Language is such a poweful tool, it is what shapes our perception of the world and how we interpret what we see and witness. If it weren’t for words or some form of language, we wouldn’t be able to find be able to find a common interpretation to understand conveyance on similar grounds.

What the heck am I talking about? Well, this video is (I think) an example of what happens when you perceive something with your ears ……and what you could be hearing/understanding if it weren’t for a language barrier.

You see, if you were an Indian person, that would’ve been just a cool dance video. But since the person subtitled it with what he thought he heard, it transforms a killer music-video into a sweet laugh-like you-got-joker-gased comedy.
