At the behest of Constantin Film, YouTube is removing all the Hitler Downfall parody videos, of which there are hundreds, some that have seen millions of page views.
Ah well, not to worry, there’s always Funny or Die.
This video shows Adolf Hitler reacting to the news that all the Downfall parody videos are disappearing from YouTube. He’s not happy, especially as it leaves him needing Funny or Die. He’s even tempted to create a fake Gmail account to get back on YouTube.
It was only a matter of time before someone made a video like this, self-referentially spoofing the meme that has swept the Web in recent years. Let’s just hope this one gets left well alone, even if it does end up being the closing chapter on the trend.
