Bad-Lee Had?? KTVU San Francisco Posts Fake Korean Pilot Names
SumTing Wong, Captain?
We can’t make this stuff up, but somebody at KTVU San Francisco actually put these
#EpicFail ‘Korean’ Pilot names on the air!
Apparently nobody ran the standard airport announcement troll test. I remember that it used to be a ‘sport’ amongst youngsters to grab the airport courtesy phone and ask to have an announcement made for a foreign visitor, with the name carefully spelled out, to see if they could sucker the announcer into reading something which transliterated hilariously into English when sounded out.
“Ho-Lee Fuk, Wi Tu Lo!”
KTVU were “Bad-Lee Had”, indeed!
The perps must have been “ROFLMAO”! Bada Bang Ding Ow!!! H/T Twitchy.com
Update: NTSB admits an intern “Acted outside the scope of his authority” – in other words, pwned KTVU!
