The Interpretation fad is one of several types of misinterpretation fads in which songs, typically sung in a foreign language, are phonetically "interpreted" (ad-lib) to English. The fad first involved the Finnish version of the theme song from DuckTales. The most popular phrases to come from this YTMND include "Your arms are broken!", "Uncle Lina" and "taco nazi". Since then, they have expanded to include translations from other language versions of DuckTales and other series, as well as general non-English songs such as Heute Ist Mein Tag. Another popular song is the German version of the ending of the Super Mario Bros. Super Show.
An Interpretation fad is similar to a Dew! fad, but differs by having a much longer sound clip. Instead of having an image which relates to the topic of the YTMND, the full interpreted lyric is written on the background image, with the topic of the YTMND saying something about the interpretation, usually "WTF?".
Both the Finnish Ducktales and German Super Mario Bros. songs are included on the YTMND Soundtrack (German Super Mario Bros. on Volume 1 and Finnish Ducktales on Volume 2).
The original Finnish DuckTales YTMND was part of a smaller, more obscure fad where international versions of TV show themes are played. The YTMND,by Boredalot, was originally textless until he received many comments telling him to add "Your arms are broken" as text. This eventually led to pouriton creating the first interpretation site the day following the addition of text.
Finnish DuckTales theme song lyrics
The following are the lyrics of the Finnish DuckTales theme song, with an actual English translation.
Vauhtimesta hurjin on Ankkalinna
Arvoitus raukee ja ansat laukee
Kun vaara väijyy takanasi
Uutta juonta aina sahaa
The wildest happening place in Duckburg
Quests will be solved and traps will go off
When danger is lurking right behind you
Always making up new schemes
Some of the misinterpreted lines from the Finnish Ducktales version were used for many sites.
- This fad is also commonly incorrectly referred to in site comments as "Dew Army" in reference to the original and the "movement" it started.
