Dubbed Hitler Videos Being Deleted from YouTube!
YouTube has begun deleting satirical videos based on the 2004 Hitler movie Downfall after a copyright claim from a German studio.
The subtitled videos, which take a current event — such as DC Comics’ Watchmen movie (among the funniest) — and overlay der Führer’s over-the-top reaction to the news, have turned into a genuine internet meme.
The funniest was the one where Hitler hears that the alien squid would NOT be in the movie. Here's one that is still online dealing with the sequel rumor...
TechCrunch reports that the purge began with a Hitler/iPhone 4G video, which was taken down with the following notice: “This video contains content from Constantin Film, who has blocked it on copyright grounds.” Plenty of the Downfall videos remain, but who knows for how long.
