Google promotes its new Google Translate app with this fun video in which it translates "La Bamba" into English. It's all done by people holding up signs with the lyrics in a variety of funky ways, while we see the smartphone scanning and translating the words instantaneously. As well as showing off its Spanish- to-English capabilities, the video also manages to whip through a number of other languages (the app translates 27) during the guitar section.
