Hitler Reacts to Takedown of Hitler Parodies

Note: strong language in this video.

You have probably all seen them — the countless parodies of the now famous scene from the 2004 German film, Downfall, which records the last days of Hitler and the Third Reich. Earlier this week, the fun started coming to an end when Constantin Film, holder of the movie’s copyright, asked YouTube to remove the clips for reasons enumerated here. But almost as quickly as YouTube took them down, new ones started to pop up. Above, we have one parody showing Hitler responding violently to the takedown request. And, then, taking an entirely different stance, we see him being the mastermind behind the controversial purging of videos. The meme lives on … for now. Thanks to @wesalwan for the tip here.

  • I don’t see why they want them removed it’s great advertising for the movie and after having watched a few of these parodies I actually want to watch the real movie at some point.

    The most I’ve laughed yet, I hate Hilter and all his memes but I’ve been following this great one over the internets for years.
