YouTube Caption Service Turns Shirtless Man's Razor Tips Into Rambling Manifesto

Unfortunately, the razor-saving video tip I wanted to show you today was "old news" from February. But! As I sat there this morning, dejected, I decided to click Google's very experimental "Transcribe Audio" feature...and nearly crapped my pants in fear.

You see, Terry, in the video below, is just your average shirtless man with a webcam in his bathroom. He had a technique for saving razor blade cartridges. As any shaving male can tell you, this is a great thing to know—cartridges are expensive and require replacing every three to four weeks or so.

The thing is once Google took his words and ran them through its Closed Captioning algorithm, things got sinister.

Somewhere out there there's a mysterious "he" and for two years Terry's suffered because of him. Maybe his name is Lee, and he's from Atlanta, possibly, but whatever the case may be Terry's been honing his skills down at the Sharpton Shooting Range for 22 months! and he's ready. Ready to protect Miss Clark's honour from this thieving Lee guy.

Obviously Google's got some work to do on their captioning service (still very much in beta). It's a start though, so good on them for that. [YouTube via Consumerist]
