First you had CBS News using the song “Africa” by Toto to cover Nelson Mandela’s death. Then you had President Obama taking selfies and yucking it up at his memorial service. And now, in a completely wackadoo turn of events, it turns out that the sign language interpreter may have been totally faking it.


To watch him is pretty strange because he seems to forget to sign once in a while even though someone’s talking and then when he does he simply seems to make the same three symbols over and over again.

Watch him for a few minutes here and laugh or cry – whatever emotion this silliness elicits from you:

It’s being reported in a bunch of places that this dude is totally faking it but we’ll see. It looks fake to me but what do I know.
