Oasis Breakup Brings Hitler to His Knees
In YouTube version of history
’Twas erstwhile Oasis member Noel Gallagher who brought down the Third Reich in the end, according to a rather inspired YouTube video that borrows footage from the 2004 German film Downfall. In this version of events, Hitler is driven to madness in his bunker—not by rapidly approaching allied forces but by the probable dissolution of his favorite Britpop band, which (in real life) Gallagher quit last Friday. Poor Adolf had mosh-pit tickets and everything: “What am I going to do on Friday now? Watch TV? Go to the pub? Go bowling?” The Fuhrer’s deputies wince as he mumbles, “I lost my virginity listening to Oasis. I had my first LSD trip to Be Here Now.” Too much information, bro.

We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking.
