A classic video

As the readers know we at the BR love to use the “Hitler” parody videos. The clips that are used come from the German movie Downfall. In the one that is used more often than others Hitler, in the bunker, is seen, after a major defeat, hectoring his Generals in a major rant. Parodies of this scene have used it to bring attention to major political stories and day to day circumstances NBC’s snafu with late night television programming is one that features Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien. However some time ago it was reported that the Director of the movie, or whomever had the copyright to it, objected to the misuse of his work and demanded that youtube take them down story here.

But you can’t keep a good parody down and here is one that popped up this weekend and is hilarious, if you an opponent of the “Snoop Law” and not so funny if you are not.

    That was brilliant, so glad I got around to watching it. I’m sure that someowhere, John Cleese is laughing.
