Google’s translation service, aptly named Google Translate, may be hit or miss when it comes to accurately translating things – this still isn’t an exact science, after all – but when it comes to turning a bunch of gobbledygook into some old-school beatboxing, well… just see for yourself.

Head over to translate.google.com and enter this clump of text in the box on the left (or just click this link):

pv zk bschk pv zk pv bschk zk pv zk bschk pv zk pv bschk zk bschk pv bschk bschk pv kkkkkkkkkk bschk bschk bschk pv zk bschk pv zk pv bschk zk pv zk bschk pv zk pv bschk zk bschk pv bschk bschk pv kkkkkkkkkk bschk bschk bschk pv zk bschk pv zk pv bschk zk pv zk bschk pv zk pv bschk zk bschk pv bschk bschk pv kkkkkkkkkk bschk bschk bschk pv zk bschk pv zk pv bschk zk pv zk bschk pv zk pv bschk zk bschk pv bschk bschk pv kkkkkkkkkk bschk bschk bschk pv zk bschk pv zk pv bschk zk pv zk bschk pv zk pv bschk zk bschk pv bschk bschk pv kkkkkkkkkk bschk bschk bschk

You’ll notice as you hover over the speaker icon in the lower right-hand corner of the box, it’ll say “Beatbox” – click it!

Then in the box on the right-hand side of the site, try it in German for a slightly different set of beats. Feel free to experiment with other languages as well. Take all the time you need. It’s Friday, and up here (*points to head*), you’re checked out anyway.

As long as you’re goofing off, check out these other Google Easter eggs.
