Soul Asylum Downfall Movie Parody

Post by Monolith Maniac »

Some of you may be familiar with the large number of the Hitler parodies that have been circling YouTube lately. For those who aren’t, the video contains a small clip from the German movie Downfall. Someone made their own parody using English subtitles, letting Hitler's actions speak his words. As with many other things online, it led others to do their own takes on it.

Since I found some of them to be pretty funny and clever, the other day I decided to create my own making it Soul Asylum related.

Hope you enjoy it; all comments and/or complaints are appreciated. ;)



Here's the original movie clip with English subtitles and a bunch of other parodies.

(If you know German, I don't know how difficult it would be to follow along with English subtitles.) :P

I've seen a lot of Downfall parodies, and this is definitely one of the best!

I love the ending.

Jim, that's freaking awesome! Your creativity never ceases to impress and amuse me. Thank you for crafting yet another fine work of original creative material in homage to Soul Asylum and their fans.

Hitler is really showing the kind of despair that we feel when we are unable to attend shows that we desperately want to be at, so the Soul Asylum dialogue that you came up with was perfect with this clip, and I think I can safely speak for the entire "Sisterhood of the holey pants" in thanking you for giving us and our special brand of devotion a nod in your clip.

Benny, I don't care how many beers you have to pour into Dave, and Danny too, if he needs the same treatment to get him to submit, but you need to park your laptop in front of them long enough to coax them into watching this.

Wow, thank everybody for the great comments; I really appreciate it. I tried to get as many little Soul Asylum and site references in as possible. I had a few other ideas, but they didn't flow as well with the emotions and timing of their speech. In the end, I'm glad you all enjoyed i; I had fun making it. :)

Nobody in particular actually, but I know that it didn't really live up to some people's expectations, which was the tongue in cheek reference. If anything, the guy asking didn't really like it since he said " [the situation doesn't] stink as much as CFAS, right sir?" He might have heard enough of his complaining about the album that he doesn't want to hear the "4 words" from the guy. Besides, later on he states, "everything they've ever done has been well worth the wait"... so he likes it. :P

Let's just say it's open to interpretation. ;)
