Bizarre Israeli Ad Features Nelson Mandela's Fake Sign Language Interpreter
During Nelson Mendela's memorial service last year, a man named Thamsanqa Jantjie was exposed as faking his sign language interpretation of the event.
Jantjie has resurfaced in a bizarre, new ad for Israeli live streaming app LiveLens. In the video, Jantjie apologizes but before doing so, says (and signs) "Believe me I'm a real professional sign language interpreter." But at the same time the voice of a woman says, "I speak sign language, not" and adds, "now, I do campaigns for money."
Jantjie, who first appears in a press conference-like scene, then introduces LiveLens in the most awkward way imaginable while shedding his blazer and dancing. He even gets on that Old Spice horse. And his head explodes. Bizarre is sort of an understatement.
