So, you think you know the theme song to hit 90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air? Well, you’ve probably got a point — after all, it’s one of the most ubiquitous TV themes of the last several decades, and you’d be hard-pressed to have grown up in the last 20 years and not at least be able to fake knowing the tune. The musicians of CDZA, though, are offering up some new interpretations of the theme through the magic of Google Translate, though, parsing the lyrics into languages like Mandarin Chinese and Hindi, then translating it back into English in a rather entertaining manner. You can get a load of the results in the video below and marvel at how few languages have a serviceable translation for the phrase “chillin’ out, maxxin’, relaxin’ all cool.” Truly, the English language is a glorious thing.

- The service can also read text from some images, which is a little creepy
- Google Translate singing a song about Google Translate is too much for our brains
