1. Funny prank…

    …but the subtitles really got me. Every white person gets standard spelling, while every black person is given ‘eye dialect’ – in the case of the first black woman, from the second word (‘Gurl’). If it was solely used to reflect pronunciation in cases where there’s a pronounced accent, that would be one thing. But ‘gurl’? How would you pronounce ‘girl’ then – ‘geeeerl’? (Sorry, Chris, I know it’s nothing to do with you but… grrrr. And I watched a couple of other pranks on the channel and they were even more egregiously racist.)
