This is hysterical

I found the line "I’m standing on Goldman’s Trading Floor Now" spoken in German by Hitler’s aide drenched in nearly cringe-worthy irony  . . .

    I agree. The Giants video is hilarious – “Not Peyton, Eli! Eli, f’n Manning!”

    And how sweet were the victories – Tampa, Dallas, Green Bay and New England. True Blue!

    Does anyone know what’s the original movie? Looks like it could be a decent WW2 docu-drama type film.

    I can only imagine the parodies that will emerge in the future starring Paulson, Bernanke, Bush and Co. Good Stuff.

    this is taken from:

    “Der Untergang” (Germany, 2004)
    aka “The Downfall” – (literal English title)
    aka “Downfall” – UK
    aka “The Downfall: Hitler and the End of the Third Reich” – USA

    Director: Oliver Hirschbiegel
    Cast: Bruno Ganz : Adolf Hitler

    ..by the way: In the clip, the spoken German was not changed from the original; only the subtitles.

    We have major problems that are just now starting to surface. Look at what’s starting to happen in Orange County, CA, and surrounding areas:

    The original movie, “The Downfall,” was superb. It is a movie every American should see, although, naturally, very few did.

    More than anything else, it is a movie about faith, and highly instructive about the American mindset, especially its evangelical Christian subset.

    My favorite mashup featured Senator Clinton going off on Obama. Good stuff.

    I think I watched this movie, or something similar to this that documented Hitler’s last days in the bunker. At the end of it you actually feel sorry for Hitler. Knowing all that other atrocities he committed it was easy for me to get over that sorry feeling. But I wondered how easy it was to take Hitler and paint him as a sorry loser worth the viewer’s pity. The power of images!

    I came across to this movie on one of the cable channels awhile back, I actually found it realistic rather than biased… I think the Germans did a good job on this movie. I recommend it.

    Hank didn’t even need any make-up.
