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.
