It was pretty funy in the first iteration I saw (dallas and redskins). It was amusing the next several versions. It is not funny now, as it has been done so many times.

I have seen tons of funny things that poke fun at BYU's loss. This was not one of them. I wasn't overly offended, but likening BYU to the Third Reich is in very poor taste. Likening any sporting event to the war with Nazi Germany isn't funny. I am pretty sure I would not have laughed if the tables were turned, and I laugh at pretty much anything. Seriously, comics love me. I am pretty much the perfect audience.

Sorry man.

I've never seen it but it was pretty funny. And yes, offensive, of course.

At any rate, I forgive you.

Since several found it offensive, I've taken the video down but left a link. I was surprised that anyone was offended, but on reflection I can see that, and youse guys are my brethren (whether I like it or not), and this board is not about offending people. Sorry!

During the pre-election Prop 8 wars there was a version of this satirizing the "No" side, and I thought that was side-splittingly funny too.

Sorry LA. You had the misfortune to be the 3rd person to post that video in about the last 24 hours. And people have been riffing off the very first discussion (the one that junkie linked to) since then. There are a few people here who find in bad taste but I think most found it humorous or at the least unobjectionable.

I think any spoof that makes zoobies into Nazis is funny. It actually is very funny especially the first half of it. My only objection is it also spoofs my favorite movie of all time, which is not a comedy in any way. But I think this in a back handed way will give it the popularity it always deserved.

I don't think anyone was offended and if they were they haven't been paying attention as these Hitler videos are everywhere. Plus if you can't laugh at the line "anyone who bought one of those quest for perfection t-shirts leave now" then when can you laugh?

One thing that's become clear since last Saturday is BYU fans have the thinnest skins of any people on earth. It's been a while since I've seen such a mass persecution complex.

I'm sure Ute fans are laying it on a little thicker this year. Two years of hearing "Harline is still open," "Austin 4.18" and "Magic Happens", coupled with the hubris of declaring a "Quest for Perfection" before the season began, makes the final act of this little tragedy even more cathartic for the self-affirming audience.

SU's customary level of objectivity and analysis. He seems oblivious to the fact that his enduring presence on boards that are managed by BYU fans (who, if their skins were as thin as he alleges, would have Shiz'd him years ago) contradicts his observation. To his credit, I suppose, our dermal thickness has increased because of him.

I think it's more a matter of the attention many of us are willing to pay to his posts. Sometimes, on religious posts at least, he is reduced to the cyberspace equivalent of a protester at Temple Square during general conference

When it comes to sports posts, however, he is often peerless, especially regarding Ute lore and history. He's also pretty astute about Ute sports in general. I am a fan of his.

I agree. It gets better the third time through. There are a lot of little things that are hilarious. Tons of inside joke stuff. It's a classic. ("Where is our reward for all our righteuos living." LOL. Not that much different from some stuff Hitler really said in that scene.)

The more I think of your creation the mor brilliant I realize it is. Subtleties like how they initially describe only the Ute offense success, and then Hitler saying "Max Hall is our quarterback he will get the ball into the end zone every time." Then the general replying about the six turnovers and Hitler ordering the buyers of quest for perfection t-shirts out of the room and losing it, "We were supposed to go to the BCS! We were supposed to be undefeated! Where is our reward for all our righteous living!" Very well put together. And BYU's quarterback named Max!

Perfect. I think the spoof was custom made for that game, and you nailed it AA.

No offense taken. Besides, the thing was specifically intended for this board. I was reading the "Hitler is at it again" thread, thought the game would make for good material, and spent an hour or so putting it together. Putting it up on youtube and linking it here was the quickest way I could think of to put the video here. I figured it would get a chuckle or two, and we've move along.

Then I went to Michigan this week to have Thanksgiving with my brother (hence the quip about Michigan, by the way), and when we got together with some of the guys from his ward, one of them asked me if I was the guy who put together the Hitler clip. I had no idea anybody else would see it.

Nah, far from it. The nickname came from various high school football practices, when the coach would tell us to run a play at half-speed (but not say so loud enough for the defensive tackle to hear). At any rate, I've used up my eligibility.

Oh yeah. I'd sack the quarterback, pump my fist, and get chewed out. One of the coaches threw out a quip like "oh, he really IS going half speed. He's just that fast. He's a regular All-American." And the nickname stuck.

Yes, All-American is a better nickname. But not as good as Skip.

I hated guys like you when we were running our first team offense and going half speed through plays. That's how I got in the only fight on my football team when I had to put an over-zealous defensive tackle in his place.
