Sometimes, traffic situations are so dire that all you can do is laugh, especially when you know the 405 is going to be closed for two full days. That appears to be the rationale behind the video below, in which the makers replaced the subtitles from a scene of the Hitler biopic Downfall and replaced it with dialog about the impending Los Angeles traffic catastrophe known as Carmageddon.

The congested traffic won't be WWII, but it has captured nationwide attention, nonetheless. Locals will appreciate the rant's jabs at L.A. car culture (Sepulveda?!). And, seriously, don't tell him to take the Metro.




Craig Gillespie directed this true story about "the most daring rescue mission in the history of the U.S. Coast Guard.”
