I am working with translations of some video subtitles and find this untranslated phrase, marked with red: "А! You go prey senting elves if Frizzy Li’l Bill sing or Bud the Frontal Little Bit"
AIBU to ask you, what that could possibly mean?

Pettywoman Sun 24-Jul-16 19:23:45

What context? What is the video about? What's on screen with the subtitles?

StopWhateverUDoing Sun 24-Jul-16 19:26:38

People are talking of what they'd rather have other people do, like "I'd make my little brother bring me tea in the morning"

Even Urban Dictionary doesn't know what Frontal Little Bit means angry
AIBU to be angry on UD then? hmm

From which language?

Pettywoman Sun 24-Jul-16 19:30:59

That hasn't helped grinconfused. It's a toughie that's for sure!

"Haha! You are presenting ones self as if (something) but really you are putting on a front"

I'll try and figure the rest out!

The translator had to translate it from English, but apparently, failed.

bittapitta Sun 24-Jul-16 19:37:05

"you go presenting [your?]selves ..."

Bill sing = "building"

TheSecondOfHerName Sun 24-Jul-16 19:37:53

Bud the Frontal Little Bit could be 'but the front a little bit'

Prey senting elves could be 'presenting themselves'.

I have no idea about the middle section.

bittapitta Sun 24-Jul-16 19:38:26

Yes Fruit might have it - Bud = "put" (say it with an accent, puddin' putting)

bedouincheek Sun 24-Jul-16 19:38:33

А! You go prey senting elves if Frizzy Li’l Bill sing or Bud the Frontal Little Bit

What about...
Here you go presenting Elvis, for he's a little bill singer, but the front a little bit
Yup definitely it.

Hang on OP - don't you know what the song is? We could easily help find the actual lyrics.

Pettywoman Sun 24-Jul-16 19:41:30

I don't think it's a song, more a talking head/ vox pop interview show type thing.

StopWhateverUDoing Sun 24-Jul-16 19:42:00

I don't have the video, just this text

bittapitta Sun 24-Jul-16 19:42:52

Oh wait it's not a song , misunderstanding on my part there blush

KeepCalmAndRetreat Sun 24-Jul-16 19:43:59

Could it be "freeze a little bit"? Like hmm?

FruitCider Sun 24-Jul-16 19:45:52

Ok so Little Bill is a cartoon character I think confused

StopWhateverUDoing Sun 24-Jul-16 19:53:27

Maybe it's this Little Bill then from american show hmm The videos are american...
