Of all the numerous public outbursts, blog posts, angry emails, and suicide comments borne out of last week's "brief, shady announcement," the video put together by ex-pat commenter Chad Sexington is at least very entertaining.
The scene is from the 2004 Academy Award Nominee for Best Foreign Film, "Der Untergang" ("The Downfall" for non-Germans), which follows Hitler's last days in a Berlin bunker before the Nazi regime is finally overthrown. Of course, this protest meme popped up from various other angry fanbases throughout the past year, from the Buffalo Bills, to the Tennessee Volunteers, to the Edmonton Oilers, to Xbox. Now Deadspin.
And, yes, I do agree that Hitler has a better mustache than I do.
