The Situation is still the Situation in any language

March 23, 2010

Jersey Shore will begin airing in 30 countries outside North America this week allowing teens and young adults in other cultures to get tanned, juiced and crazy while introducing them to the GTL lifestyle.

While the episodes will be dubbed into other languages – GTL is going international as GBL in Latin America (gimnasio, bronceado, lavandería) – some things just can’t be translated.

We won’t be seeing Ronnie, Pauly D, Sammi, Snooki, JWoww and unfortunately for two episodes Angelina joined by Mike “El Situacion,” or “Situazione” in the Shore house. Nope, The Situation is going international and defying translation.

We can’t wait for some of the International ad campaigns to come trickling back to America. They have to be stellar as they include young people of different nationalities grooming themselves to look like our favorite guidos (is that a derogatory term in Italy? that might be weird), and there’s even a print ad with the excellent tag line of:

“Muscles + gel + tanning bed = sex.”

Yup, people outside of America. That’s really all you need to get sex here…muscles, gel and a tanning bed. Actually, it probably is for foreigners. I mean, they already have the accent going for them, just look at Colin in the movie Love, Actually. He got Elisha Cuthbert, January Jones and Ivana Milicevic without as a pale and pasty world traveler, just imagine the women he could have gotten if he had adhered to GTL.
