You Won’t Have the Hitler Meme to Kick Around Any More

Constantin Film, the German production company responsible for Der Untergang (“Downfall”), is starting to take down the gazillion or so YouTube Hitler parodies for copyright infringement. Probably including the gazillion or so new YouTube Hitler parodies denouncing its decision. [TechCrunch]


Looks like someone’s lawyer lit a fire under a German studio exec’s ass.

How many non German speakers would see this otherwise? I’d say the number is closer to zero.

Oh well, it was getting old anyway.

@ManchuCandidate: I like the idea of a self-expiring meme.

Then again, I got rickrolled by a passing car this morning.

First they came for the Keyboard Cat…

This is still my favorite of that series:

Downfall of Grammar

(not on YouTube, so apparently safe for now)

@Tommmcatt Loves The Giant Floating Head: And then they filmed it and took the case all the way to the Supreme Court

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: The Management applauds the correct use of Diagonal Callbacks.

@nojo: How do you get rickrolled from a car?

@blogenfreude: You sit at a coffeehouse, some car drives by, and the car radio is playing Rick Astley.

@nojo: I always thought it involved voice mail, but wev.

@nojo: I’m never gonna give them up, never gonna let you down.

I suppose it was just coincidental that they started on April 20?
