Hitler has his say on vuvuzelas

The latest Downfall parody shows the Führer getting heated about the plastic trumpets.

By Samira Shackle

 

Annoyed by vuvuzelas? So is Hitler, according to this video parody by the British film-maker Ken McHardie.

Taking footage of Hitler’s deranged rant in the bunker from the film Downfall, McHardie shows the Führer shouting that “it sounded like a swarm of bees in my house”, and asking: “Are you insane? Ruining the World Cup with a plastic bloody horn?”

THANK YOU

The makers of Downfall, who have taken action to prevent the proliferation of internet spoofs of this scene, probably aren’t very amused.
