It chronicles the Nazi getting fonky at Nuremberg.

That was waaaay funnier than it ought to be. Usually I hate those mix-ups, but that was well done. Oh, Jesus.

Excellent audio of BIG, anyone know where it's from?

All of these Triumph mashups are in poor fuckin' taste, but it does tell you something about Leni's skillz that people keep recycling her footage.

That was funnier than it had any right to be, and the effort to match the mouth to the words really shows.

I really, really, really, wanted to be offended, but it was just too good, damn.

Leni recently checked out of this dimension and good riddance.

I think, in case anyone missed it, that it is necessary to mention the best mashup I've seen on this topic, a mashup of "Downfall" .

That would be "Biggie/Tupac Live Freestyle" from Funkmaster Flex and Big Kap's 1999 compliation The Tunnel.

I thought that this would be aß, but it was actually pretty well done. Thanks for the link, empath.

Kottke posted a link to another Downfall mashup the other day, about Hitler getting banned from a game called iSketch, which I thought was done a bit better than the XBox Live one.

Look, if you had one shot or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted one moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?

Indeed, the XBox/Hitler mashup is a riot. As for the iSketch riff on it...OK, I wanted to hate it, but it had some fantastic lines. Not as good as the original though.

Nazi Admins sold it :)

This clip indicates why Hitler was able to charm an entire nation and lead it over a cliff. The BIG clip is also a good example of how bombastic and utterly meaningless pop culture can be.

Even though I'm not really a footie fan I love this Downfall mashup.

And there's always 'Der Bonker' which caused a bit of a fuss in its home country.

Clear the way for the SS to 1 W
Clear the way for the prophets of rage
Engagin' on the stage, on a track
Tell Jack stay in the back
I was born
Every level I'm on
You're warned
Just in case you forgot
I pump in kilowatts
To let 'em know which direction
To go what's up I wanna know
I test the front row
Forgiven the givin' while the livin' is livin' it up
So many people is sleepin' while standin' up
Not dressed to impress or fess it
That's it text to the brain like FedEx
Treated one and the same
'Cause the name of the game
Don't give 'em checks above necks
Some don't realize the same side
Siddity in the city
Suburbs or projects
But we're livin' in a different time
Some speed, some lead
While some jus' pump rhymes
Then again all in da same gang
Info to flow
And heal all below
Let's go and find
The piece of mind that's taken
Or else the black
or start breakin'
Public Enemy no!

Never underestimate the comedic potential of Hitler.
posted by malaprohibita at 10:08 AM on October 7, 2007


This is ridiculous and great. I wish Hitler were alive to see it, so I could kill him again.

This really should have been titled Triumph of the ill.
