Has a film ever told a completely different story in its subtitles compared to the audio track?

It would be a prank, but a clever one to pull off: the audio has the "real" plot, while the subtitles graft another plot onto the visuals. Two movies in one.
The closest thing I've seen is Mad Movies
in the '80s, where new lines were dubbed over old movies, and some bad subtitling
that drifted from the plot.
