SomeoneDumb: I wonder what language the sign interpreter was using, unless they're all the same. I dunno. Is signing a universal language?
THX 1138: Mikey1969: Anybody with the observational capabilities of a kumquat will notice that the guy just uses the same 3 or 4 gestures over. Was the record stuck, or something?The speaker used the phrase "former president" three times, and the interpreter included the same sign in his delivery each time. When he translated other parts, he used different signs. I also had to note that when translating "the Mandela family", he used a sign that had a 'gathering' motion to it, which is similar to American sign language when indicating a group of people (team, class, family, etc), so it did look plausible to me.

THX 1138: Newsflash: More than one version of sign language exists. More at 11.-Oh wait, the allegagions of a fake interpreter are from one guy on Twitter? Never mind. Stop the presses! This has gotta be true!
