The video clip of Adolph Hitler ranting against his generals and staff has been used by another prankster to lampoon its latest victim: Colorado Springs Fire Chief Rich Brown. In March we covered a previous use of the same clip to parody a firefighter upset about being detailed to an EMS unit for a shift.
The Colorado Springs video surfaced on June 4th and despite an investigation by the city’s IT department, the department is no closer to finding the culprit. Deputy Chief Tommy Smith has indicated “If we were to find out who did that and it was done on-duty, we would hold them accountable.”
Since the video is readily available on YouTube for anyone to customize with the subtitles of their choosing, it is unlikely the Colorado Springs version will be the last fire service related use that we see.
Rather than complain about it – perhaps we might as well enjoy it… Its 2012!!! Get over it!!! A better approach would probably be to organize a contest for the best fire service related use of the Hitler video.
Any takers out there?
