Hilarious Failed Advertising Slogans and Translation Accidents As demonstrated in 2008 by a show called "Urban Legends", many third world countries do not require advertising slogans because most of the population cannot read. It is typical for many of the countries to create packaging with a photograph of the product on the outside of the bag. When missionaries from the United States and Britian donated "Gerber Baby Food" to tribes in Africa, the tribes people were appalled and terrified upon viewing the jars of baby food. People in third world countries are also terrified of American bags of dog and cat food. Gerber is also the French word for vomitting. Thanks Dahoglund. Advertising has had its share of bloopers. I remember when I was a young child, a commercial kept coming on tv. Two woman were sitting on a park bench talking about not feeling fresh. A woman whips out some Massingel (?). My little and brother did not understand what they were talking about and my embarrassed mother tried to explain it. My young brother could not understand why women would use a douche in the park. Oh, you gotta love it. GusTheRedneck 2 years ago from USA Level 3 Commenter Howdy Tammy (tammyswallow) This is a very enjoyable "look back" and translations like these show that many otherwise smart marketers are too dumb to "do things right." It goes in both directions, be assured. I got a very polite letter from a Mexican company one time that was written in English that someone in that Mexican company had translated probably using some computer program to do the translating. The addressing line was supposed to read, "(Greatly, Very, or Highly) esteemed sir" but it was written as "Much estimated Mister." If you try some of those "translation" programs on some stuff, you'd be surprised at what comes out at the other end. Gus : ))) DommaLeigh 2 years ago Boy do I understand translation problems. I am American and took a few trips over to England. Most people say, "So what, you both speak English. " WRONG! If they ask if you would like to be knocked up in the morning, don't be alarmed, they are not sending a male hunk to your room in the morning. What they where asking was if I needed a wake up call. If your car breaks down never ask an English man for a jump. It won't be your battery he would be looking at. I totally understand and it is very humorous. Great hub! Laughed my chalupas off! Reminds me of a story many years ago. It wasJerry DellaFamina, one of the MadMen originals, whose advertising agency in the early 1960s, was asked to come up with a catchy sales pitch for a new product. The campaingn was for the "new" portable transistor radio, and his clients were the Japanese. Back then, World War II was still fresh in America's mind, so it was a touchy subject.
