Hitler and the Vuvuzelas

“The Hitler Meme” or “Hitler finds out” is a video meme involving the addition of new subititles to the dramatic scene of Hitler’s final meltdown from the German movie Downfall directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel. The subtitles are often anachronistically altered with humerous English subtitles surrounding current events.

The scene received a hilarious treatment with the introduction of vuvuzelas (those horrendous noisemakers) during the last World Cup tournament. And since the World Cup is global, this video went global, too, and has enjoyed many millions of views.
