I Love You Puppy | Mistranslation Monday

A few months ago, there was a J.Lo song that made its way into the top 40. Since the German boyfriend and I listen to a lot of Radio Hamburg whenever we are in the bathroom, we knew all of the words.


Heck, I had even seen the music video a few times, which tries to poke fun at music videos that objectify women by objectifying men instead (see screenshot above).

If you don't know what song I am talking about by now, it was "I Luh Ya Papi" by Jennifer Lopez (aka "I Love You, Papi"). The title is quite easy to remember since the lyrics to the chorus are as follows:

I luh ya papi
I luh ya papi,
I luh ya, luh ya, luh ya papi
I luh ya luh papi,
I luh ya, luh ya, luh ya papi
I luh ya papi,
I luh ya papi, I luh ya luh ya luh ya papi
Yeah that my papi
I luh ya luh ya luh ya papi


Anyways, the song was stuck in Marco's head one day, and he was trying to find the song online. He was getting quite frustrated, and once I came over and looked at his computer screen, I immediately saw why.

Instead of searching "I Luh Ya Papi" (or "I Love You Papi," which would also work), Marco was searching "I Love You Puppy."

This turned into us watching videos of dogs that can say "I love you" on YouTube, which is a real thing.

  3. Haha, most of them say "pets allowed but no dogs". Is a dog not a pet now?!
