VIDEO: Best Meltdown of a Closed Caption Writer Ever

Print comment Post Comments
As a writer, I can honestly say that typing all day can become pretty tiresome. Your fingers swell, your grammar falters, your mind decomposes into runny mashed potatoes. But that's the product of hours of transcribing my own thoughts. I couldn't imagine the tedium of dictating someone else's words -- knowing that in a few years, machines will soon detect the subtle auditory differences between "genius" and "penis."

But until that day comes, writers of closed captions have to endure hackneyed dialogue and mumbled speakers. Or decide to go out in a blaze of surreal glory.

Witness what could be the best meltdown of a closed caption writer, or just a hilarious dictation mix-up between a college ad and maybe something on Adult Swim.
