Watch: Downfall of Edinburgh Trams

Posted by to The Blog on September 18th

Another mashup of the Nazi-tastic film ‘Downfall’ is doing the rounds this time centring around the Edinburgh Trams debacle. Its important to note that this is one in a long line of YouTube hits; the ‘downfall of…’ meme has produced some funny stuff- The Downfall of the Avatar Trailer, The Downfall of Twitter… there’s a quaint clip titled ‘When Hitler found out Michael Jackson died” and a meta-commenting mashup where Hitler finds out he’s a joke on YouTube.

I haven’t been able to decide whether its the undertones of racism in this particular clip that make me feel squeamish or rather the fact that Adolf Hitler seems to have such a clear view on why, who and how we’ve been done over in this whole TIE affair “Why didn’t they just buy bendy electric busses” the Führer screeches.
