A spoof of a Mercedes-Benz commercial featuring a C-Class Mercedes running down and killing Adolf Hitler went viral over the weekend, sparking mostly positive reactions. But the German automaker, part of Daimler AG (FWB:DAI), wasn’t exactly pleased with the unauthorized commercial spot.

The 80-second video that was uploaded to YouTube contains the warning “This spot is a film school’s submission. There exists no current or past affiliation to Mercedes-Benz or to Daimler AG.”
