My Favourite Poster of 2010

Itaewon Translation

I saw this poster at Itaewon station the other day and it wins hands down as most exciting advertising mistranslation of the year.

Itaewon Translation

It's bold, it's simple and so completely wrong in every way. I love you Itaewon Nich, even your name isn't proper English...

Great find. Happy New Year!

Even aside from the "...역 번..." ("번역"?) error, misspelling "Nike" as "Nich" requires a monumental handicap in typing ability.

Happy New Year to you Breda!

Holterbarbour, I would love to meet their translator/typist. If only to thank them for the joy they bring to my life when I walk through Itaewon station.
