1) Big Momma
The term “Big Momma” is common in the States, but once its translated to Arabic it sort of loses its appeal..
We’d also like to emphasize on the exquisite addition of colors and butterflies that look like wontons.. Well done.

3) The honey is sweeter from?
Another example of an English phrase lost in translation. We’re confident she was going for “sweeter than honey”..
4) “Waves Crashing”
The phrase makes no sense whatsoever, another victim added to the “Lost In Translation” group..
5) “Suzanne the love of my life”
Love has no boundaries..
