If you aren’t familiar with the popular YouTube channel Bad Lip Reading then you have some serious catching up to do. They essentially take footage from music videos, TV shows, movies, sports highlights and, best of all, political events, and they dub in their own words. It’s pure genius.
Bad Lip Reading’s most recent target was the Presidential Inauguration of Donald Trump. Released yesterday, the entire video is pure gold—from Trump’s terse exchanges with Obama, to George W. Bush’s lame wisecracks, to Mike Pence’s quiet horror. I can’t help but suspect that some of these dubs might actually be what was said.
