Tonton and the 300, a translation.

I’ve been hearing about these YouTube videos from so many people already. Most refer to it as Tonton and the 300. The series features several portions of the movie 300 and Troy dubbed in Ilonggo. Those who’ve watched it on YouTube say it’s really funny even if they don’t know what the people are talking about.

I’ve decided to translate one of the videos from Hiligaynon (or “Ilonggo”) to English. See video and translation after the break.

Some common terms frequently used in the dubbing:

part – shortcut for partner; friend; comrade.)
bord – (brod) slang/shortcut for brother

Don’t read the translation yet. Watch the video first. Then, watch it again while reading the translation.

    Haha..totally hilarious! The other day, I watched the ilonggo dubbed version of Troy. Still with the same character name Tonton. :D

  2. Jaypee says:

    My bad, in this video character is Benjo. Is it done by the same people who dubbed the Troy video?

    Btw, it’s more funny if you can understand Ilonggo. :D

  3. issai says:

    haha, it’s a good thing i know ilonggo! it’s funny!

  4. deuts says:

  5. leo says:

    ROFL! ti ilonggo gani man ako, nagsakit ang tinai ko sa kadlaw ah!

  6. Sam says:

    This is good! Do we have a Cebuano version?

  7. koolitz says:

    @jaypee – yup the same…

    i heard they are from CPU taking up Nursing. There is one video na it was banned coz they mentioned the name of the school…im not sure the whole story though… naghimo na sila gani isa ka video for disclaimer hehe..

  8. leon says:

    Ya, they did that troy video too, dubbed as tonton ang paghaharap.

    Nami man ang ‘benjo mangayo ko kwarta’. Search for it. hehehe.

  9. wites says:

    now i know kung sino ang mga ilonggo dre. *smiles* ti halong halong lang kamo da bords. basi matuyawan kamo.

  10. Joni says:

    Haha! My ilonggo friends love this video! Kaladlawan gid man ah. Pati ang gin spoof nga video sang Troy. :))

  11. jash says:

    mga labutaw gid a :D

  12. Jon Limjap says:

    I think I.R. is actually E.R. (well, you know how Ilonggos tend to interchange Is and Es). I have never seen bearded doctors and male nurses there!

  13. Remo says:

    Hilarious! Basi ma tuyawan ta! Hahaha

  14. Jeffrey says:

    I could have understood it better if it was in Bacolod Ilonggo.

  15. Steve says:

    I liked the other 300 dub too.The one with the Persian asking “Benjo” for money. And the twist at the end where the Persian minion said “balik ta bords!” was really hilarious!

  16. BrianB says:

    Man, this is hilarious. I know people like this.

  17. BrianB says:


    I’ve always wondered what Bacolod Ilonggo was?

  18. BrianB says:

    Translation doesn’t really do it justice. Sorry, Abe. It’s useless to try translating it.

  19. Elizar says:

    I read this post last night, but did not finish.. i have to watch the movie first.. :)

    I just finished the movie, hehehe funny! :D

  20. yuga says:

    BrianB: Yup, I know. Doesn’t do justice. Just that those who pointed this video to me were asking to get the translation so I did the best I could. The humor is in the voice and intonation, not the context.

  21. BrianB says:

    I’m a little disappointed they didn’t use Abe’s nickname.

  22. cantilangnon says:

    i think IR means International Relations. some universities like UP, MSU,etc offer this course. anyway, lingaw kaau ko bords! hehehe

  23. eric says:

  28. joy says:

  29. joy says:

    i guess you guys know what if what is the implication of having an incident report but if not, it means that you have some kind of an offense made and that report will be kept in your record. hay.. budlay noh? cge lng ah…. la lng. just to clear you up with the I.R thingy. daw naham-ot lng ko kay daw gina debatihan nyo gd.

  30. hybrid101 says:

  36. Abe,

    Is it true that you yourself have personally translated it from ilonggo to english? or would you care to “cite” who your resouce is with regards to the transcript of the clip and the translation from ilonggo to tagalog?

    Because I seem to see a similar posted article in this blog: http://chronicles.wraithstrider.com
    that is very much similar to the transcript of yours including the spellings and even the number and variation of exclamation marks wich is pretty much “unusual” for me…

    From what I know, the said article is older that yours.

    I’m just wondering…


  37. yuga says:

    Not sure what you mean. My translation is in English and the one you pointed out is in Tagalog.

    The transcript, I personally and manually wrote down as shown in the video.

  38. watep mga tol!!! super funny! even d q intindi ilonggo…. sna may tagalog or even english pra mas gud

  39. gud! nyc mga tol!!! super funny…. sna may tagalog. kh8 d q ntindi ilonggo super twa me

  40. bn says:

    I.R. means Incident report.

  41. Essman says:

    Helpful post. Totally agree with him.

  42. Zaker says:

    I really like this blog post, i am grateful for this insight :)

  43. Tonton and the 300, a translation. | YugaTech | Philippines, Technology News & Reviews is a well put together blog. I dont feel my website http://www.diigo.com/user/kevbabeuea has a lot in common with yours, although I can (and have) learnt quite a bit from you, cheers, Nora Mcknight

  44. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  45. Eder says:

    Nice article dude! Check my site with Opmerkelijk Nieuws, Sport NIeuws, Tiener Nieuws, Videos, Filmpjes, Funpics en nog veel meer!

  46. Your post is wonderful. It is quite descriptive and I am certain it can attract ton of readers and reviewers. Preserve carrying out excellent job!
