The YouTube video shows a popular movie clip, often parodied on the internet with captions on different subjects, of Hitler yelling in his bunker. Hitler, in the Tesla parody, gets angry at Tesla 3 demand going “through the roof” and second-quarter results sending the stock “soaring.” In the original movie, Hitler is seen discussing war tactics with his generals before realizing that the end is near.
