Hitler and Rob Ford

Updated: Sept 1/2014: see last video below: Ford returns from rehab

Blankety-blank YouTube. I keep posting videos then somebody takes them down. Copyright infringement? Bad conscious? I keep having to check postings to verify whether or not my embedded videos are still functioning. Ha, ha. Geesh, how hard is it to break the law?

On a previous posting of videos about Rob Ford, I wanted to include one of the following but the video I had selected disappeared. I couldn't find a copy so I removed the reference completely from the posting. I have now found something else so I'm going to try again. Keep in mind these videos may disappear too. With YouTube, one never knows.

The Internet has a number of parodies based on the 2004 German/Italian/Austrian war film Downfall. (See info in References.) It has been used for all sorts of things and is just hilarious. When I saw this parody about Rob Ford, I was laughing so hard I was in tears.

Bumbaclot? All spoken in a Jamaican accent? In defence of Rob Ford, my displays of public intoxication took place a long time ago before the Internet. Then again, I wasn't holding public office which one normally associates with a higher standard of decorum. VIDEOS

I'm not going to talk about drugs and I'm not going to talk about the comedic fodder for late night talk shows. I am, however, going to talk about the hyperbolic bravado of political leaders vying for my vote who are counting on me being naive and uninformed.

Wikipedia: Downfall (film)
Downfall (German: Der Untergang) is a 2004 German/Italian/Austrian epic war film directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, depicting the final ten days of Adolf Hitler's life in his Berlin bunker and Nazi Germany in 1945.

Parodies
One scene in the film, in which Hitler launches into a furious tirade upon finally realizing that the war is truly lost, has become a staple of internet videos. In these videos, the original audio of Ganz's voice is retained, but new subtitles are added so that he now seems to be reacting instead to some setback in present-day politics, sports, popular culture, or everyday life. Other scenes from various portions of the film have been parodied in the same manner, notably the scenes where Hitler orders Otto G√ľnsche to find Gruppenfuhrer Hermann Fegelein, and where Hitler discusses a counterattack against advancing Soviet forces with his generals. By 2010, there were thousands of such parodies, including many in which a self-aware Hitler is incensed that people keep making Downfall parodies.
