Undeniable Fact About ROTS #26: It Was Meme-Tastic

ROTS was released at the dawn of what’s become the internet meme. Not only did Darth Vader’s anguished “noooooo” become a meme, so did the hilarious Chinese bootleg of the film, featuring badly-translated captions. “Nooooo” was translated to “do not want” and a popular catchphrase was born.

    I remember that bootleg.

    English language fluency in China has improved a lot since 2005, so I fear we won’t see the sequel to ‘Backstroke of the West’, ‘Star war – the seventh gathers’.
