    Tesla Motors shares closed at an all-time high on Friday: virtually quadruple the closing price on April 9. You may get a kick out of a four-minute YouTube parody of a scene from the film “Downfall” related to the short selling of Tesla Motors stock. Short sellers profit if a stock’s price falls and lose if it heads upward. All year long a great many Tesla Motors shares have been sold short.

    Quite possibly the funniest thing ever for a TSLA investor, I was going to suggest it needed its own thread.

    A keen moderator may want to pull my post about this out of the short term price movements thread and insert it here, you know, before ze Germans get here.

    I imagine these are way less funny if you speak German (because the subtitle gag is ruined) or if you are German... Some of the best contributors on here are German so we should have some respect.

    If it's well done they're still funny. I thought this was a good one. Who ever gets tired of a good Downfall subtitle parody.

    My husband is German and thought it was funny. I guess there's no accounting for a person's sense of humor.

    I have a cousin who is a native German. He is a retired English professor now living in Bavaria near the Austrian border. When he was eleven he pointed a toy gun at an American soldier invading his town during the time setting of the "Downfall" movie. The soldier took it away and told him to go home. As an adult my cousin expresses vehement disapproval of everything that was involved with the Third Reich. He has told me that he enjoys the "Downfall" parodies. However, he has to mute the sound so as not to hear the spoken German words.

    I'm half German and thought it was funny, a lot of them are.

    Are you sure it wasn't your non-German half that was laughing and drowning out the unhappy German side? :biggrin:
