Not everyone could watch the inauguration of the new government on January 7 live on television. For this very reason, the public broadcaster ORF has a TVThek, where programs are streamed up to one week after broadcast. However, something unexpected happened to this very important ceremony: the ORF accidentally added the wrong captions and telenovela subtitles were displayed.
Instead, lines from the third episode of the telenovela “Alisa – Folge deinem Herzen” (Alisa – Follow your heart) were shown.
We have translated some of the best moments created by this unfortunate incident for you:
(Bloody Hell. What am I supposed to tell Alisa?)
(The door was open. Who are you?)
(Mama is ok with this?)
(No. This guy again.)
(So you are interested in the job of the cleaning lady?)
(You can start here. As a waiter.)
(I know what someone looks like who just fell in love.)
(Bull. I just got out of a relationship.)
(He is engaged anyways.)
(So nice to have all the children under one roof again.)
(I hope the pantyhose stay up.)
(Tomorrow I am going to look for another job.)
(It’s over. I love Christian.)
(What would you call this little chick?)
The main program of ORF 2 as well as the TVthek livestream were not affected; the correct subtitles were displayed. According to ORF, the erroneous subtitles were “immediately deleted and replaced by the correct ones” in the TVthek. They regret the incident and apologized for it.
