Hm, the full video won't play without installing something that only runs on Windows? Bummer.

Yeah, I only got 5 minutes, then it stopped.

Is the video player anything particularly nefarious? Can it be easily uninstalled without leaving any malware behind?

I'm not getting anything like that in Chrome on my Mac. I'm about 10 minutes in, still trying to figure out why this was ever made. For sheer badness I think Battlefield Earth may have finally met its match.

Had no trouble viewing it on Safari on an iPad, but here's an alternative for anyone foiled by the veoh.com link. Horrible rip though.

I was also able to download the whole thing as an MP4, though I'm starting to question the wisdom of this from a mental health perspective.

Not to mention it took an age to load, and meanwhile there's an ad blinking at me the entire time.

I suspect I shall have to wait a little longer for this gem to find me.

Okay, I was sold as soon as I saw the parrot say "Heil Hitler!"

So, I take it that no one here was one of the handful of geeky teens who watched this back in 1982.

Watch it? We videotaped it. It became a very intense, but very localized cult.

To see more than 5 minutes, you need to install the Veoh player. And here is the slimmy text that appears at the bottom of the popup for that...

"The Veoh player is powered by the Giraffic Video Accelerator - a secure video streaming technology which accelerates video downloads and helps improve your streaming speed. The Giraffic program is 100% free of adware or spyware and is guaranteed not to harm or slow down your computer in any way."

Uh-huh.

The beginning looks and sounds like an Eastern Bloc Eurodisco version of a 1940s anti-Nazi film, Schichlegruber Does the Lambeth Walk.

No way this is real. Even if it is.

You, my friend, need to watch They Saved Hitler's Brain. Afterwards, you will realize this Czech movie is Citizen Kane by comparison. (Backstory and detailed analysis here.) Mach schnell! Mach schnell!!

This was quite funny and not nearly as weird as it sounds. But it was weird.

Note that the real fun starts about half-way through after the first "return" from the mission, so if you get that far you should definitely keep going.
