Washington, Feb 21 (ANI): Dubbed video clips showing Adolf Hitler in various forms of action on YouTube are said to have both shocked and amused the websites viewers.

In one of the clips Hitler can be seen slowly raising his trembling hand and removing his glasses from his sneering, sweat-drenched face, before bellowing profanities at his officers, who stare back in horror.

The reason for Hitlers ranting and raving is then revealed to be over being banned from playing Xbox Live.

The clip is only one example of other hundred spoofs on YouTube from the 2004 movie, Downfall, and the site has also added humorous subtitles over the action.

But not all find the clips amusing, and some have criticised them for their humanizing portrayal of the Nazi dictator.

According to the Jerusalem Post, an umbrella organization representing Holocaust survivors in Israel asked YouTube on February 17 to take down one of the spoofs, in which Hitler complains about the lack of parking spaces in Tel Aviv.

The organization said that the clip was grossly insensitive to the feelings of elderly Holocaust survivors, but others found the clips to be amusing and not offensive at all.

This clip has nothing to do with disrespect, Fox News quoted a YouTube user named “tzahico” as commenting on the parking spot video.

No one has laughed about holocaust survivors, concentration or death camps, but rather on Hitler. It is one of the best comedy clips I have ever seen, and the creative writers deserve an ”yishar koach” (bravo) for making people smile! the user added. (ANI)
