Please take this offensive garbage down. There is absolutely nothing humorous about Hitler and the Nazis.

I think the humor here is in the very animated manner in which Hitler gives in to the evils of eBay. If you've never seen one before, this clip was made on a "make-your-own-Hitler-reacts-to-whatever" site, and there's about a half a million of these on YouTube. Some of them are pretty funny, including this one, for obvious reasons. I've seen quite a few, and while some are quite juvenile or sophomoric, none were distasteful enough to do anything besides poke fun, and most target Hitler directly. If anyone watched this and couldn't see past the uniforms, then the point was missed. Taking this down would be violating the OP's inalienable right to free speech.

Also, is this an invocation of Godwin's Law? Kind of a grey area when the original discussion is about a satirical farce comparing Nazis to the effects pedal aftermarket. (If yes then I rest my case)

I understand and appreciate your right to be offended. I've been to Auschwitz, Bergen-Belsen, the Anne Frank House. I've played Anne Frank's father in a stage production of The Diary of Anne Frank.

I still think the video is freekin LOL hilarious. I'm OK with letting different areas of my brain do their own things.
