According to My Nokia Blog
, the video takes from the meme of "Hitler finds out," based on a clip from a 2004 film, Der Untergang
Hitler's rant expresses the disappointment of many Apple fans who waited anxiously for the new phone. According to idgigitaltimes
, "... many, though unwilling to voice it immediately, began to get the feeling that, indeed, the innovation of Apple had been buried along with its dearly beloved founder, Steve Jobs. Even as we watched and absorbed every last detail of the most anticipated event of the mobile industry season, we all felt ourselves wondering 'Is that it?'"
Hitler is furious that Apple fails totally in comparison to "Nokia's new phones that were announced recently..." In anger, he orders, "Anyone who is planning to buy any of the forthcoming products for Nokia leave the room now."
The room is almost emptied, save for a few of his top generals. He swears "Goddamn Apple! You can bullshit consumers only so many times like this. Not everybody lives in America where this works... F***k... Its not possible to milk people for money anymore with those longphones, people are not so stupid!"
Hitler is infuriated that an inconsequential company like Nokia would outdo Apple. He agrees with My Nokia Blog's
comment that "when you have a product like the Nokia Lumia 920 that offers something new to the table, well you just have to ask yourself what on earth is Apple doing with their hundreds of billions."
Hitler can't believe that "with all those resources" iPhone 5 is the best Apple can turn out! He exclaims incredulously: "Just look at the result..." He sinks wearily in his chair: "How the hell did it come to this?"
Viewers who saw previous versions of the "Hitler finds out" meme are wondering whether the meme has not gone stale. Others say the video is not so funny if you understand the dialogue in German. NapalmFake
comments: "The German in the background is too disturbing when you understand it."
writer empathizes with the grieving Fuhrer:
"I have to confess, I've found myself feeling like I was actually in mourning after the September 12th letdown.That was until I discovered this video, which has aided in easing the pain of loss with the use of humor."
