undefinedThis one’s for Sydney Anglicans and those interested in them. Oh, and also they need to have a sense of humour.

You may wonder why I’m limiting my audience so drastically.  🙂

But I’ve already seen the frowns of disapproval from many others who watched this video without the above prerequisites. I wouldn’t want to increase the quantity of disapproval in the world, unnecessarily…  🙂

Anyway, I laughed ’til I cried. I really did. It’s the most I’ve laughed in ages.

The guy who posted this to Youtube hoped to remain anonymous. He should know better – there’s only a handful of guys in the diocese with the smarts to produce this, and I know who you are…

People have criticised this guy for remaining anonymous, even as they’ve condemned his satire. Go figure…

Here it is:

  1. Those who criticise the video have simply stumbled across a cultural form they don’t understand. ‘Downfall’ videos have been around for 6 or so years, there are hundreds of them, they have nothing to do with Hitler.
    Whoever made the video is quite clever, because placing these critiques on Hitler’s mouth allows them to be aired and questioned at the same time. Brechtian alienation people, it has been around for a long time.
