Proper translation is important, and this sketch on Comedy Central’s “Alternatino with Arturo Castro” proves it. The show has been killing it lately, with the Guatemalan actor leaning on satire to make important points. As the Facebook post for this sketch suggests, “translation is an art” and some are just not equipped to handle the job.
This one NEEDS to be seen. Have a laugh.
Genius. Pure genius.
We can’t get enough of “Alternatino.” Here’s another sketch made specifically “to people who hate immigrants but have never actually met one.”
