Hitler can't find downtown Tel Aviv

Holocaust survivors have called for the removal from YouTube of a clip parodying Adolf Hitler searching for a parking space in Tel Aviv.

The clip shows an excerpt from the film "Der Untergang", a 2004 movie about the fall of the Third Reich, with subtitles that show Hitler ranting about the dearth of available parking spaces in the coastal city, a problem familiar to Tel Aviv residents who own vehicles.

(…)The clip originally included Hebrew subtitles which were then translated into English due to popular demand. The blurb accompanying the English clip states that the jokes included may not be suitable for all audiences.

I don’t know but I find it hysterically funny. Watch it while you can and judge for yourself.

I’ve never looked for parking in downtown Tel Aviv but I did have a good friend who was from Tel Aviv who went into full rant mode every time I whined about parking in downtown Toronto.

His argument could be summed up as - I didn’t know how lucky I had it being spared from the ‘parking nazis’ of Tel Aviv. I am sure if Avi is watching this video; he is laughing his head off and suggesting the video makes a valid point..
