Hitler Parody Throwbacks involve Adolf Hitler's reactions to a historical event. For comedic purposes, the event that is referenced almost never took place at the same time as Downfall (Der Untergang). For example, they may refer to an event that happened before World War II, such as the sinking of the Titanic the Hindenburg Disaster, the beginning of World War I, and the invasion of Poland.
Other videos have been known to play with the timeline, often having Hitler comment on an event that happened before he was born, such as The Big Bang, the American Revolution, and the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Other deal with events that would have happened after he committed suicide, such as the Nuremberg Trials, the bombing of Hiroshima, the Apollo Missions, and .the construction of the Berlin Wall.
