Adolf Hitler wakes up in the 21st century. He quickly gains media attention, but while Germany finds him hilarious and charming, Hitler makes some serious observations about society.
A poster for Back to the Future (1985) can be seen on the wall In Fabian's room when he is first reviewing the footage of the boys playing soccer. This echoes how Hitler has arrived in what is, from his perspective, the future. Sawatzki's clothing is also similar to the one of Marty McFly in the "Back to the Future" movies.
Are you crying, my Fuhrer?
Adolf Hitler: No.
In the movie Hitler seems very surprised when he sees a television set and calls television "a great possibility for propaganda". However a television set shouldn't be new to him, as in 1935 Nazi Germany had the own television station "Fernsehsender Paul Nipkow", which was one of the first regular television stations in the world, broadcasting regular daily program for a few hours, including the Nazi Newsreels and Nazi Party movies. However in this movie he might be impressing his disgust, how this medium is used nowadays and about the content of the broadcasting content these days, also as mentioned later at his performance on the TV show.
During the first closing credits news reports about racism in Europe are showed.
