From Iceland — Teletubbies Get Sopranos Subtitles, Hilarity Ensues

Teletubbies Get Sopranos Subtitles, Hilarity Ensues

Published October 26, 2012

A technical error at television station Stöð 2 yesterday led to subtitles from an episode of the Sopranos appearing during an airing of an episode of the Teletubbies.
The Teletubbies is aired on Icelandic television in the mornings as a part of a slot reserved for children’s viewing. The show is dubbed in Icelandic, and is not subtitled.
However, a technical error at Stöð 2 did subtitle an episode of the Teletubbies – only the subtitles came from an episode of the Sopranos. Vísir has posted screenshots of parts of the subtitled episode.
The subtitles are from Season 4 of the Sopranos – specifically, the episode “The Strong, Silent Type”. In English, the subtitles in the screenshots are (in descending order):
“You can no longer function as a man.”
“Last week when I came home to learn that you had killed our dog,”
“You killed the dog? What’d you do that for?”
“He sat on it while he was high.”
“I happen to know that you were high at my mother in law’s wake.”
