The “Hitler’s Downfall” Meme Takes On Google’s “Search, Plus Your World”

hitler-memeGoogle has been taking it on the chin from a lot of quarters this week since the launch of its Search, Plus Your World feature on Tuesday.

Twitter got angry about it, the privacy watchdog EPIC called for a government investigation (and the FTC is reportedly planning one), and countless industry observers have weighed in with their thoughts, too.

And now, from the you-knew-it-had-to-happen-sooner-or-later department, comes the news that even Adolf Hitler has had enough of Google and its search result changes. Andrew Shotland put the video together and shared it today … and we can’t resist making sure our readers see it, too.

Note: If you’re uncomfortable with foul language, even in subtitled words, or in an office environment where foul language on your monitor is frowned upon, best to skip this video. (And we apologize if YouTube is showing foul language on the video below before you even start watching.)

    I learn more about Google from these Hitler meme videos than I do from reading blowhard journalists in the search space, how sad is that?

    Thanks for posting this Matt!  I changed the thumbnail to make it a bit more SFW.
