The 'Narcos Bad Lip Reading' Might Just Be The Most Hilarious One Yet
Often, when two great things come together, they can fail to live up to expectations and ultimately be a bit of damp squib.
Like the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight, for example, or egg mayonnaise sandwiches; both things that should have been kept well apart from one another for everyone’s sake.
Having said that, every now and then when two worlds do collide, the result can be a wondrous thing, with the Narcos ‘Bad Lip Reading’ being a shining example of that.
In the past, the bad lip readers have given The Hunger Games, Stars Wars and the NFL – amongst many other things – their expert treatment, hilariously dubbing their own nonsensical conversations over the hit Netflix original show.
We’ve missed Don Pablo in the most recent series, so it’s good to see the pot-bellied king of cocaine make a brief return to our screens.
Titled ‘Soy Pablo’, the video sees DEA agents Murphy and Pena convince an untrained Pablo Escobar lookalike to infiltrate the drug lord’s lair, although things don’t go quite as planned…
Check it out in its entirety below.
The doppelganger (complete with porpoise tattoos) gets up to a lot in the video, posing as an undercover agent, a family man, a pineapple aficionado, an enthusiastic yet woeful singer, and even, a surrealist photographer.
How the bad lip readers consistently manage to find words that perfectly fit certain bits of speech in various conversations, I’m not quite sure, but it might actually be my favourite one yet.
In fact, I’d argue it’s just as good as the real thing.
