I think the "Arturito" thing is universal across spanish speaking places

FloydRosita 06/01/2013

It's not because you're Mexican. It's because you're a fucking retard.

The only Mexican robot I know of is: Bender Bending Rodriguez.

My friend actualy used to nick Artuditu on so many games because of this :D

R2D2 in Spanish would be pronounced as "ere dos de dos" which sounds like you're saying "Inhereted Fingers". That is why "R2D2" would sound absolutely horrible in Spanish.

Qwashawn12 06/01/2013

I have a cousin named who's name is Arturito and I always called him R2D2!

EastisRed 06/01/2013

Im chilean, and i thought the same.

Little Arthur for the non-Mexican.

Mecha_Sheva 06/01/2013

In some Spanish subtitled releases, R2-D2 name appears subtitled as "Arturito" or "little Arthur" in Spanish, since the pronunciation is very closed resembled, this is also the case with C3-PO whose name is subtitled as "Citripio", but that does not resembles anything in Spanish.

Arturito y Citripio.

Thankfully my spanish now sounds like any other mexican's would, and my english sounds like any yorkshire englishman's would.

KrunoS 06/01/2013

Wouldn't it be Artudito?

Also, in Star Wars books (yes they exist,) droid names are always spelled phonetically, like Threepio or Artoo.

dylanrush 06/01/2013

In spanish dubbed versions of Star Wars he is called Arturito.

jrizos 06/01/2013

Don't you mean from Estar Guars?

arsizio 06/01/2013

My brother in law from Guatemala thought this same thing.

THE_PUN_STOPS_NOW 06/01/2013

In the classic trilogy it's called C1-P8 here in Italy, honestly I don't know why.

Lore86 06/01/2013

I'm really bothered by that L bracket locking his arm to his bottom.

dicer 06/01/2013

Bwahahahahaha!!!

mrshagzsf 06/01/2013

My sons name is Arturo, but white. I never would have connected this. Than you.

ErinRB 06/01/2013

I had actually never heard of that people thinking of pronouncing his name like that till I saw this video.

ElementalFox 06/01/2013

Creo que no eras el unico con ese problema :)

tophertrejo 06/01/2013

If you watch star wars withe the spanish subtitles on, they really do say arturito. I guess it makes more sense than saying "ere dos de dos"

saved_link 06/01/2013

R2D2 would sound like Arturitu, not Arturito (which would sound like R2DO).

Berfaderf 06/01/2013

okay, this is fucking hilarious

AsTheWorldTurns 06/01/2013

That is what i assumed as well, since they didn't translate it,they left it on purpose.by the way I'm Argentinian.
