How not to do a downfall video. A public safety announcement from the ACT ALP

By johnboy - 21 November 2012 23

There is little in this world as sad as Government and politicians trying to tap into the zeitgeist. Be it school kids bussed in for government organised “flashmobs” in the name of awareness raising, or “poetry slams” in public libraries with no booze of scoring.

But to that sad, sorry list of flabby failure the ACT ALP, via YouTube has added a stunning new low. It’s a totally unreadable Hitler Parody just like it’s 2006 all over again.

As is often the case with these things guys, brevity is the soul of wit.


UPDATE 21/11/12 10:30: We’ve had this in the comments:

Dear Johnboy and RA readers, please accept this apology. A team member was “experimenting” with Youtube last night and now deeply regrets not understanding this technology as well as one should before “experimenting”. It was not intended as a public post and any offence made to anyone, including fans of the original movie and subsequent parodies (of much better quality, in spelling and humour) is regretted. They have made an unqualified apology.

Easily the worst Downfall parody I’ve ever watched.

Quick question for the hive mind: Wasn’t it KatyG who asked for a kinder, more productive LA this time around? Looks like it’s “do what I say, not what I do”.

I think they had more fun in the Siege of Leningrad.

And it was shorter.

Verboten, verbose and very lacking in the virtue of humility. Crap like this is one of the reasons that I have stopped voting Labor.

Are you “executing” the culprit?

No wonder Labor almost lost government in the election. Looks like the heavies have gone back to Sussex St and the locals are left struggling on their own.

Elias, you do understand that if *someone* has downloaded the video in question, it’s never really going to go away, right?

It was lame and full of spelling mistakes, so justifiably deleted.

Someone has also identified found the source of this really bad parody as well… http://downfall.jfedor.org/ …There are cleary many tools that should never be so freely available on the internet.

And to answer another question, no one has been executed, but people will be advised and warned about experimenting on the internet.
