Q. Dear Oracle,

When the robot in the Talk music video wakes up (2:22), it looks like there's text at the bottom of the video. It's covered by the playback bar so I can't read what it is.

Would you, in your infinite wisdom, know what this says?

Thanks, Faiz


The Oracle replies:

The text is the lyrics with the words running in the correct order from left to right but each word is backwards.
It says:
LLEW I LEEF EKIL ER'YEHT GNIKLAT NI
A EGAUGNAL I T'NOD KAEPS
DNA ER'YEHT GNIKLAT TI OT EM

Which of course is:
Well I fell like they're talking in a language I don't speak and they're talking it to me.
