Hitler cannot get a Neptuno
« on: August 23, 2012, 09:09:47 AM »

Javier from Trompos Space sent me the link to this video. A fan of his tops (Juan Ignacio) from the Basque Country took a movie about Hitler's last days and captioned it with his particular translation.  I guess to appreciate it you need to be able to read Spanish but not understand German.  But, basically, the "interpretation" is Hitler's frustration with not finding a Neptuno top in Berlin and who is responsible for that.
Warning: if you believe Hitler can never be funny you may be offended by this.

Very cute idea.

People have been using that “Last Days” video for years... like in this one regarding the Dallas Cowboys:

Maybe I shouldn't be laughing at this, but that Dallas Cowboy video is really funny.  I showed several others at the church and we were all howling.

I like the idea of Hitler being mad that he didn't get a Neptuno. I just wish I knew more Spanish.

I am sorry that you feel offended, assure him that the intention of the video was never to offend nobody, it was not done by bad intention.

I am sorry Topper that you feel like that.  I guess someone could say it makes fun of the German language (I was not even sure if it was real German or just German-sounding gibberish).  I can understand that you don't find it funny but offensive seems to me taking it to the extreme.  It is pretty common to use the sound of a foreign language in comedy.  This reminds me the Prisencolinensinainciusol "English" song by the Italian Adriano Celentano (yes, I AM that old, so no senior jokes please!)

Hitler is on most every day on the cable channels.  One station has one show after another.....the last days of Hitler, Hitler's soldiers, Hitler's generals, the rise of the Third Reich, the fall of the Third Reich.  For some stupid reason I often watch each show for a bit. 

That Pris.......linen......iusol" video is hilarious.  It makes me think that we need to all agree on a top spinning song and learn how to move with it.  Then whenever we get together we can move like the people in this video!
