Mondegreen

You may not be familiar with the term “mondegreen,” but you’ve undoubtedly experienced one in real life. It refers to the phenomenon of mishearing words in a song and thinking they’re something other than those intended by the songwriter and singer. The most famous is probably “‘scuse me while I kiss this guy” from the Jimi Hendrix song, but there are about as many as there are songs. Mondegreen is a short film by Esteban Diácono that pays tribute to this universal experience.

According to the filmmakers, Mondegreen is set in a “museum of mishearing,” with installations all stemming from a word that rhymes with “found,” after Found Studio, which produced the short. There are no misheard lyrics involved, but I guess it’s close enough.

You can watch Mondegreen below. And for more from Found Studio, check out more of their work on Vimeo right here.
