While living in Asia, I’ve noticed so many attempts made for using English phrases, whether it be on t-shirts or advertisements, and a majority of them are failed attempts. As an English speaker, these failures always make me laugh, so I thought I’d share some of my findings with you guys! Currently, it’s just what I’ve discovered in Korea, but I will continually add to this page while living here.
A chain pizza joint’s slogan: “Love for Women”
Not exactly a failure per say, just silly looking
But, why an Audrey Hepburn cafe???
There were zero tomatoes in this department store
To pee or not to pee? That is the question.
Thank you, Korean Superman and Ironman!
Find the stereotypical wrong letter!
This nonsensical slogan was on one of my student’s shirts.
Yet another winning slogan on another student’s shirt
Uhh, no.. We were actually looking for “corn.”
More coming soon!
