This one was pretty good, actually. Hitler parody, doomer-style.

I remember seeing this film as a film, featuring German actor Bruno Ganz as Hitler. Very convincing. Far more people have seen Ganz in these Hitler parodies than ever saw him in the film.

This Link doesn't work.  I would LOVE to make my own Hitler Video!  :icon_mrgreen:

I am thinking I will send up everyone in the Collapse Blogosphere, from Mr. Wizard to Gail the Failed Anthropologist and the entire crew of Uber Doomers on NBL.  LOL.

I got the link to work.  Now I gotta write this thing, which is hard without being able to view the vid at the same time.  I'll D/L from work tomorrow.  :icon_mrgreen:

RE

I have gone back to attempt to fix the link, but somehow can't. When you click the link you get a 404 error, which is because some nonsense characters are added.
Have no idea how to fix that.

THe link is here:

Add parody:

Good site for background on this meme.
http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/downfall-hitler-reacts

Of interest--

Investment Bank
On December 8th, 2010, Jefferies investment bank executive Grant Williams was fired after sharing a Downfall parody video in a company newsletter e-mail. The video in question, which is thought to have been uploaded on December 6th, 2010, satirizes JPMorgan’s financial bet against silver in 2010 and the subsequent online grassroots campaign that was launched to buy silver and thus counter the firm’s efforts.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/I0mhX9hpq3g?feature=player_embedded" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/I0mhX9hpq3g?feature=player_embedded</a>

In July 2013, a Hong Kong judge ordered the international investment bank to pay its former executive $1.86 million USD for damages covering lost salary and bonuses between June 2011 until July 2013, ruling that the termination of Williams for sharing a video was “hypersensitive” and “irrational.” The story was reported on by Bloomberg[21], The Atlantic[22] and The Huffington Post.[23]

This version I believe was done by Max Keiser, and is my FAVORITE of all the ones I have seen to date (about 5 or so I think).

Getting funnier than this will be a Challenge:icon_mrgreen:

We've had a couple of threads for the Hitler parodies in the past.  I'll merge this thread into one of them.

My favorite was the one Max Keiser did on Silver.  :icon_mrgreen:

They seem to be perennially popular. Welcome to the Diner.

That one's a little outdated, since it's widely suspected that JPM now owns 500 million oz's of silver bullion. $500/oz silver would make Jamie Dimon nearly as a happy as being offered the Fed chair, which is likely too.

Here's one that is a little more up-to-date.  Close to the JPM one on the funny meter.  :icon_mrgreen:
