Don’t you just love it when new Google services spark all kinds of creativity? YouTube announced yesterday that it started to automatically add captions to all of its videos, and blogs like Filmfail are already busy finding good examples of auto-captioning gone wrong. Luckily for us, we didn’t have to venture off too far to find a hilarious caption FAIL.

Our own Kevin C. Tofel from jkOnTheRun recently posted a review of T-Mobile’s 21 Mbps webConnect Rocket USB laptop stick on YouTube, and he opted to auto-translate it today. The result is surprising. Who would have thought that you can get connectivity on the go from chicken wings?

We were also stunned by the revelation that Kevin is somehow entangled with the FBI, plotting something against the people’s congress while Clinton has fallen asleep. Then again, does anything surprise you with those two guys from the farm? Click through to the video and enable CC to enjoy the strange spy meets tech love story in its entirety yourself, and let us know in the comments if you have found similarly amusing captions on YouTube.
