Some of the subtitles disappear a bit too fast, also some of the scenes it’s really tough to read the full subtle.
Bigger, bold font is ok and longer screen time.

Overall, not bad, I smiled a few times

I came back to check on this thread and find it hilarious that people are accusing me of being politically correct and other such nonsense!

People, you clearly have no clue. I am the furthest thing from politically-correct. The reason that it is unfunny is because it's freaking old and has been done 10 million times. And this video had absolutely terrible captions that did not match the video in the slightest.

I suppose you still find it funny to RickRoll people too?

Look, if you find it funny, then go have a barrel of laughs. I find it eye-rolling and pathetic. Sorry to **** in your Cheerios.

yeah it was tough. I had to make it myself because the old website that you used to make these on was shut down. So getting the timing right was difficult.

This is what you said originally and what people reacted to:
Just to let you know, in 2019 this is not funny, ironic, or clever in the slightest.
Kind of a complete generalization, is it not? Sounds like you're telling everyone here what is properly funny and what is not. You were being a dick about it and now it's everyone else's fault? I agree with you about the poor captions. Had you actually said that, or said that it was in your opinion, I think everyone could have lived with that. But that's not what you did, and now you're trying to change history on us. How about take some responsibility here rather than weasel out on it and blame everyone else?

Agreed. A little late to try to change his story now after everybody called him out.

i made the damn thing and I agree with you here. The irony in the videoís popularity is thatís it is lame and overdone. Sorry if that doesnít works for you.

But that sounds not the impression you made in your original post. You made the impression that you, or others, should be offended by the use of the Hitler character in 2019.

Default Hitler & Dr, Porsche knew a ME was Best!

Yep, Hitler supported the German F1 cars that were ME's and Dr. Porsche who worked on the German F1 cars in the 1930's even built his first 356 sports car in 1948 as a ME! However it cost too much and they needed to use more VW parts and rear engine to make it economically at the time!


My Auto Union Type D from 1938 with it's mid engine supercharged V12. The German's dominated in that time period! Note, mine is a bit smaller!

Try not to be such an ahole.

Yes, you're right, my initial comment was misinterpreted by many here. I frequent other forums where people understand succinct comments like that, so I guess I'll need to be careful to be more explanatory.

The rather odd thing is that several of the people who called me "politically correct" (I still find that one humorous) have been posting back and forth with me for years. Maybe they've gotten to the point in their lives when they forgot what they had for breakfast.

Perhaps of interest, we had a plant in West Germany close to the East GermŠn boarder. There was a large Plasma cutting power source that was on display at Checkpoint Charly that had smuggled a number of East Germany citizens to the West. The machine would be returned for repair and there was a compartment inside that would hold a person!

I visited Berlin on busuness soon after the wall came down and recall the many buildings that still had evidence of being shelled in WWII.

Perhaps being a bit precise in you post would help. If you called it "hackneyed" or "banal" that would have nailed your perspective on the video. As is,one could easily make the jump to "snowflake-land", where anything and everything is offensive if it doesn't fit ones personal social or moral paradigm.

Generally for something to be succinct it has to be short and clear. If so many people misinterpreted your comment it obviously wasn't clear what you meant.

^^^ Noted, I wasn't clear enough. Hopefully now, with all the further explanations, the intent of my note is clear.

So POLITICS is ok on this site? BUILD THE WALL is certainly a political statement in the current climate in the country. References to HITLER are "funny"? This one of the most notorious murderers in history. You don't have to be consumed with "PC" politics to find Hitler offensive.

Like "bad Lip-syncing", supposed to be funny.
