    Bruno Ganz, the guy who played Hitler in Der Untergang, which led to the “Hitler learns” or “The Downfall” meme.


  4. Bruno Ganz, best known for his role as Adolf Hitler in Downfall. There was a scene in the movie where Hitler gets furious at the knowledge of the lost war. This is the inspiration for those Hitler viral videos on YouTube.
    Funnily, this struck me only because of a comment on a post on BoingBoing.

    The last scene where hitler shouts about losing the war is made fun of by changing the subtitles to imaginative ones…

    Bruno Ganz played Adolf Hitler in Der Untergang. An awesome movie, now famous for the Hitler’s downfall scene, which has been dubbed into thousands of scenarios. Like him being banned from WoW, planning Burning Man, TN’s engineering colleges, blocked by Chetan Bhagat, etc.

    This is Bruno Ganz, who starred in the Movie “Downfall” based on the last days in the life of Hitler. This resulted in the “Hitler Meme” on Youtube and other sites, where videos spoofing the same appeared. Serious scenes in the movie were portrayed with jokey english translations on contemporary events such as Hilary Clinton.
