Lost in translation

Some U.S. advertising campaigns aren't as effective in other countries, such as China. Well, I've found a great list of them from, "your source for lies, distortions, misinformation, bad advice, and the spreading of baseless rumors." Here are a just a few:

"Come alive with Pepsi!" translates to:
"Pepsi brings your ancestors back from the dead!"

American Express' "Don't leave home without it" translates to:
"Stay home with it"

"Intel inside" translates to:
"You have eaten Intel"

"Come to Marlboro Country" translates to:
"Leave China"

More here to enjoy.
