One Downside Of Knowing French

FLG came across this post that highlighted a video of Star Wars with Sartre quotations for subtitles. They explicitly warned people like FLG:
And obviously this will make no sense if you understand French. If you do know it, hit yourself in the head repeatedly before watching this. And then hit yourself repeatedly when you’re done watching.

FLG couldn't help but be intrigued. What do you mean it won't make any sense? Well, it makes sense. That's not the problem. It's not about no sense making, it's simply unbelievably annoying. The Sartre subtitles are overpowered by the terrible quality of dubbing the actual Star Wars script in French.

Shit. How can FLG enjoy the Existentialism when Darth Vader sounds like a Parisian waiter talking on his cell phone while on the toilet with a cigarette in his mouth? He can't is the answer.
