The Sweet Sounds of Google Translate

Although we’ve always said that friends shouldn’t let friends use Google Translate, we would be the first to admit that it can still be an awful lot of fun! On a recent episode of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon, backed by actress Anne Hathaway, performed novel renditions of several songs whose lyrics had been translated by Google Translate. Their bizarre karaoke featured such classics as “My Front Is Not Felt” [The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face”] and “I Will Be Punctual” [Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive”].
