return of the ‘Downfall’ meme: Hitler learns Cocteau Twins aren’t reforming for festival season (watch)

by Bill Pearis

Downfall Shoegaze

There was a while there — oh, 2009 or so — when you could barely go a day without someone posting a new parody of the scene in Downfall when Adolf Hitler learns he’s lost the war. If you missed that somehow, the subtitles were redone so that the scene was about Hitler finding out there’d be no camera in the iPod Touch, or that his friends aren’t going to burning man, or him failing to get The Fall’s RSD09 single. Then someone made one where Hitler actually finds out about the Downfall Meme, and the meme quieted down, but I just came across a new one where he finds out that The Cocteau Twins aren’t actually reuniting this festival season. It works in Slowdive, Ride and a few other shoegaze bands as well. It’s clearly from this year, and funny, and you can watch it below…

Lo único que Hitler pide es la reunión de Cocteau Twins.
