Coffee bean

Alexa translating ‘coffee bean 100’ with Boris Johnson into Welsh is a resounding success

Videos of Alexa translating phrases about Boris Johnson into Welsh have gone viral after being shared on TikTok.

In the clips, people ask their smart speakers to translate a series of English words with hilarious results insulting the Prime Minister.

An example was uploaded by TikTok user football_ben, who asks his Alexa to translate “Boris Johnson carrots coffee bean 100” into Welsh.

Much to the amusement of others on the app, the device obliges with a translation that sounds a lot like “Boris Johnson moron f**K off, ye c**t”.

The word ‘carrot’ in Welsh is ‘moron’, ‘coffee bean’ means ‘ffa caffi’ and ‘100’ is pronounced like ‘cant’ meaning English speakers may hear something not too complimentary about the chef conservative, reports WalesOnline.

So far, the video has garnered over 235,000 views and 4,700 comments. Some users revealed that they also tried to do the same, while others shared their amusement over the translation.

In response to the football_ben video, one account said: ‘Yes I’m Welsh and it’s true.

Another said: “I’m Welsh and proud. Even more so now.”


A third person replied: “I’m crying and laughing – I love it.”

Someone else said, “When you said it, my Alexa thought I was talking, so she did and my mom told me to leave.”

Some suggested using Russian President Vladimir Putin instead of Boris Johnson, while others offered interesting translations from English to French.

However, for those without Alexa, similar translation services are available with Siri on an iPhone and Google Translate.

Welsh-speaking music lovers know that a similar gaffe was invented long ago thanks to Gruff Rhys’ band Ffa Coffi Pawb, which literally translates to “Everyone’s Coffee Beans”, but a pun may imply something else.
