Hitler as California Cult Winery Owner

What if Hitler was a California Cult Winery Owner?

The use of a particular sequence from the 2004 movie Der Untergang for comic effect by switching out the subtitles has a long history on the internet. I first saw it several years ago in (what is still my favorite) brilliant version about Burning Man. But it's been used for everything under the sun.

It was only a matter of time before Hitler took a trip to Napa Valley (warning, adult language included):

Can't remember what tweet I saw first about this, but obviously, I'm not the first to discover it, and owe my discovery to someone else. Thanks, whoever you were!

Never having seen the other parodies I laughed until parts of my lung were coming up.

There is a reasonI avoid this sort of thing: once I stop there is no stopping.

1/Tom, my lungs are much better and now I am hoping to do something about my stomach.

2/Now that Galloni has reviewed California wines for The Wine advocate, what do people think??

Hmm. People think? I thought we just react.
Good question, Mel. In the province of Napa, I haven't heard anything yet, actually. The explosion of reactions will come on or about November 15th (or whenever the "Napa issue" comes out.) Better lube up your keyboards!

A friend of mine who works a lot in the Central Coast think he might have a high threshold for VA, to judge by some of his scores.
I just find lumping everything from Ridge, Mt Eden, Rhys, all the way down to Ojai and Sine Qua Non, not to mention Paso and Monterey County,....a bit much

The guys who made that video said they didn't see the previous one released a couple weeks before. I guess everyone just has Antonio Galloni and the new Parker era on the brain. I found both of the Hilter reacts videos amusing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6YWVGXYmAg
