To mark Chinese New Year, BMW has released a funny-yet-sweet ad campaign that highlights the amusement that can come from AI-powered translation errors.

In ‘Translating Joy,’ viewers witness a team of printers who aim to impress the global market with their New Year greetings, but unfortunately have some mishaps along the way.
