Apprendre le Français
en 30 secondes

Apprendre le Français en 30 secondes is a quick thirty-second French educational film. The video starts with a title page that is then followed by a series of pronunciation lessons for the words for lighter, fly swatter, fabric tape measure, condom, cucumber, and cigarettes. However, the translations are incorrect, and the French voiceover and English subtitles falsely identify each of the objects. This inaccuracy creates humor and tension between the objects and language. The lighter becomes a bottle opener, the fly swatter a whip, the tape measure a rope, the condom a water balloon, the cucumber a dildo, and cigarettes become incense.
