Ever puzzled over the lyrics in foreign-language music videos? Ohio-based YouTube user Buffalax has quenched his curiosity by getting lost in translation. Check out his recent post at www.youtube.com ('crazy Indian video'). The subtitles don't translate the lyrics but rather spell out what he thinks the words sound like in English. His creations have spawned a legion of imitators and the gimmick will no doubt wear thin in time, so tune in now to watch Indian pop stars croon 'my loony bun is fine' or German singers implore viewers to 'look at this ladle'.
