    Sorry, don´t like that at all. War analogies never fit; and especially in this case, I see TESLA as something positive, even if it will reduce German companies´ market share. And implying any anlogy between German auto makers (or even Europe as a whole) and Hitler is completely out of the picture.

    hobbes, I can understand the Hitler connection striking a raw nerve with some Germans but, as a parody, this was really funny :)

    Kind of ironic that Tesla faces more barriers to entry in the U.S. markets (auto-dealers etc.) than in Germany or the rest of Europe. Lawmakers here are lining up one after another to try to stop Tesla.

    First time around was funny, second time around it's not quite as...the Germans have welcomed Tesla with open arms after all; the satire would be much more effective if it was state lawmakers and/or auto-dealers.

    The guy deleted the English Subtitled version. There is another version. Don't know the language.

    Anyone know what the original is?
    As in what is the German > English translation?
    And, is this an original movie it's borrowed from?

    The movie is downfall (or well original is Der Untagang): Downfall (2004) - IMDb

    It's a good movie I think. The scene itself is when Hitler finds out about the state of affair and in a tired voice in the end (in the vid above as well) says "The war is lost".

    The movie is 2004's "Downfall" hence Downfall parody.

    It is originally in German about Hitler's last days.

    There are thousands of these parodies on youtube. There used to be a website dedicated to allowing the user to make Downfall parodies. They were sued by the producers of the movie. The website won but don't know if it is still operational.

    didn't see the first translation, but this one does not suggest an analogy between Hitler and the German car manufacturers as apparently the first translation did.
