Hello hello!

I create videos in an uncommon way and put them on my youtube channel called ComedyGhostWriter.

I find clips of different cultures in various languages and edit them by purposely inserting "misleading" subtitles.

Here is one example: https://youtu.be/NckNEkGw7SE Here, I have made a short episode of a police office in Mongolia

What do you think about this? Am I crossing the line here or is it totally fine?

Your critique could make life a bit happier for my viewers!

seems fine to me, that is, the way you have done it gets the humour from the obvious fact that your subtitles are not accurate renderings of the actual dialogue in any way. I have seen this done before, and the classic example would be the scene from Der Untergang (Downfall) with Hitler in the bunker - everyone adds different sub titles to that, depending on what's topical.

Looks fine for me, however I am pretty sure there will be some people, who do not understand.

The Americns seem to be the only culture that make comedy at the expense of other cultures acceptable. I think it is because they are not as a culture an empire, so therefore are not seen as a bully. There is no comic in England to day who could take the piss out of Indian, Jamaicans, Africans, especially not religions. The American take the piss out of eb]very one, including themselves. Self depreciation is like the balm spread on jokes.
