I’ve finally earned a place in the Hitler Downfall meme

I was alerted to the existence of this footage earlier tonight, upon arriving home from work. Linette took me into her office and showed it to me, but was reluctant to tell me who the responsible party was. She eventually gave up our mutual friend Eric Lagergren, though…

Thank you, Eric, for making history come alive for my family and me. I’d been waiting for the right time to introduce my five year old daughter to Hitler, and, tonight, you gave me that very special gift.

    Damn that’s good! I’d pay to see that acted live on a stage.

    So who is the Fuher of Ypsi? Steve Pierce?

    That is really wonderful. I kept finding lines where I planned to then comment here to say, ‘that was the best part’, ‘no *that* was the best part….’ , ‘no *that*!’ – Eric did an awesome job.

    I have one edit to suggest. The Fuher should ask all the people who find Totally Quotable Clementine adorable to leave the room.

    The only thing that indicates Pierce is the comment about the Segway, and lots of douches have Segways.

    Wait. Hitler found out about the Downfall parodies, and he’s not happy.

    I could watch a whole 2 hours of that. Thanks, Eric.

    The Ypsi/Ann arbor dividing line was my favorite!

    Still brilliant! I think you should put a link to this in your sidebar. Or at least on the About page or something.
