Downfall Parodies

Whilst searching for videos on youtube a while back, noticed a couple of parodies based on a particular scene from the film 'Downfall', based on the last days of Hitler in his bunker. Basically it shows him going nuts about losing. Various folk are now taking this passage from the film and creating quite interesting and very funny parodies of particular situations, like this one having a pop at Microsoft:

Part two is here:

Others include: stealing his car, Hilary Clinton, Vista Problems, Second Life and even something to do with some North American sport of which I know nothing.

Yahoo have turned down M$ offer, and the latter has walked away. See the full text of Balmers letter in the link. Talk is that Yahoo's share price will crash, then M$ will come back with a hostile offer - and get Yahoo cheaper. Might not be anything left for them to buy however......
