The Mayweather/McGregor press conferences have got the Bad Lip Reading treatment and it's so good

Great song at the end, too.

THE FOUR PRESS conferences for the Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor fight have created headlines around the world.

From accusations of racism, homophobia and surreal insults on stage, it’s all been a bit of a circus.

So it’s only fitting that the legendary Bad Lip Reading YouTube channel did their own version of the “trash talking”

And it’s racked up 3 million views in the last 48 hours.

And the best thing is: even though their voiceovers are complete gibberish, it’s still a completely plausible conversation because both of them have run out of things to say at this stage.

Some choice quotes:

Conor: “You’re just a sloth”

That could have actually happened.

Mayweather: “You got a pickle head”

Given the levels of burns so far, that would have counted as a decent comeback on stage.

But the video peaks when Mayweather introduces his song “Watch Out Rinoldo” at the end

For once, the Bad Lip Reading lines sound better and more dignified than the real thing.

Well played.
