This week, we reached into the bottomless bucket of banality and visual amusements that is Flickr and pulled out the “Crappy Bootleg DVD Covers” group. The covers of these awkwardly pirated movies feature a jumble of Engrish, incorrect information and dadaist photoshop. Behold a top-hatted Dustin Hoffman Lost In Translation, Schwarzenegger as the protagonist of Star Wars, and the Scarface Exorcist! When it doesn’t read like drunk cut-up poetry, the text is a bad review or random blog copy-and-paste job. Selected specimens after the break.

Triple super geek points for anyone who knows what’s amiss in this one.
