You Will Fall Over Laughing at Bad Lip Reading’s Take on the Mayweather vs. McGregor Press Conference
“You got a pickle head.”
Bad Lip Reading can be hit or miss, from so-so nonsense to hysterically funny. With their take on a Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor press conference, the comedy minds who supply the absurd jokes in place of whatever was really said may have outdone themselves, because this is great.
If you haven’t clicked yet, I strongly suggest turning on the closed captions with the “CC” button at the bottom of the video. Without that, you won’t get the full effect.
And if you’re in the office watching, wait till you’re alone. There are moments in this when both fighters’ massive egos are totally undercut by the sheer stupidity of the dubbed lines in such a funny way it’s difficult to keep watching from laughing so hard.
Some favorite lines include:
McGregor: You’re like my adult big baby and I’m gonna give you a nap!
Mayweather: You got a pickle head.
Mayweather: (later) I hit a snowboarder yesterday!
McGregor: Yeah, you’re so smart, you know… I’m gonna cry all night.
There are also mentions of doorbells and buying a cat.
Let’s face it, the Bad Lip Reading script in the end is no match for the actual nonsense fighters spew when pumping themselves up for the big match. It’s just intentionally goofy.
