Hitler’s Angry Response To Volkswagen Scandal (Video)

 

Via CleanTechnica:

Well, this was inevitable…

If you’re new to the internet, that scene has been given completely incorrect subtitles numerous times for entertainment/amusement purposes. In fact, one has previously been made for “Hitler’s response to Tesla’s free Superchargers,” which I shared before but will pop here again:

As I shared the other day (and everyone in the world seems to have heard by now), Volkswagen got busted for tricking US EPA emissions testers in a despicable act of public assault. The company put software into nearly 500,000 diesel vehicles to make these vehicles burn their diesel more cleanly while undergoing tests… but not while actually in use. The public harm is immeasurable, but certainly very considerable. In layman’s terms: Volkswagen Group attacked the American public and lied to the US government and buyers in what can genuinely be termed an act of evil.

The latest news is that Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn has provided a generic, PR-team-scripted apology; Google already has Herbert Diess as CEO (like he didn’t know what was going on); and Volkswagen stock has dropped ~24%

I imagine this is just the beginning, and I’m going to go ahead and write another article right after this one based on the comment of a Gas2 and CleanTechnica reader with extensive experience in this realm of the auto world.

    I must travel in the wrong places on the internet, never having seen these Hitler videos before… sitting here chuckling away, thanks for the post! 🙂

    • Haha, no prob. I live on the internet (it’s my job & my hobby :P) but am quite positive I came late to the party with those. Some good ones out there, though.

    Downfall parodies must be much less enjoyable if you speak German.

    Poor Martin won’t even get a chuckle out of this…

    Drop the word ‘chukle’, dumdums. And it’s not even close to funny. Also, zs, tone down your adjectives, you moron
