Hitler has often been parodied with varying degrees of success. This spoof video uses footage from Downfall, a recent Oscar-nominated movie about Hitler’s last days in his Berlin Bunker.

The idea is pretty simple. YouTube mavens create parody versions by adding their own subtitles to the clip. In this case, a clip was taken from a scene in which Hitler goes totally ballistic in his bunker after being told he lost the war.
