Rest in Peace, Bruno Ganz

Bruno Ganz, the actor who played Adolf Hitler in the film "Downfall" - and which has the scene of Hitler ranting that has been turned into its own Internet meme - is dead at 77.  I have a post tag for "Hitler Video" because there are almost three dozen of them that I've posted.  Here is the original scene:

This one may be my very favorite parody version of them all (yes, it's about Global Warming):

Or this one abut Global Warming.  I'll have to give back my Nobel Prize ...

And of course, there was one for Obamacare.  Hitler is infuriated that his insurance got canceled even though "If you like your Doctor, you can keep your Doctor."  And he was going to buy a Harley with the $2500/year that Obamacare was going to save him.  Heh.

Of course, there's a Computer Security one, too:

Here's an interview with Ganz on all the parody videos that have been made.  He was pretty tickled by them:

Thanks for the performance, Mr. Ganz, and for all the fun that resulted.  Rest in peace.

Is there anything that video clip cannot be used to make fun of to the detriment of leftist? Thank you Mr. Ganz.

Interesting that he kept the mustache afterward.

Eric Wilner, I was going to comment on that myself. I think that style of mustache went out of favor in 1945. I would say Herr Ganz rather liked it.
I wonder how many children were named Adolf after the war?
