Anime – Various
Song – Spike Jones – Der Feurher’s Face
Completed April 2009
Premiered May 22, 2009
I blame this one on dokool. At AAC last year, he challenged me to do a comedy video for Anime Boston. I normally don’t do comedy because my black sense of humor isn’t shared by a lot of people (and I rarely execute it well, anyway).
Inspiration finally struck when I saw a Haruhi video and thought “I wonder how hard it would be to PhotoShop something else onto that armband.” That thought segued into the silly Spike Jones song “Der Feurher’s Face” with a Nazi-esqe “H” replacing the swastika, and the idea was born.
From the Anime Boston contest’s concept statement:
“Three years ago, an interesting anomaly was discovered in the film archives of a respected museum, where a canister of film was found with all the approprate cataloging labels attached, but no corresponding record in either the physical or electronic databases. We believe that the canister is an artifact of an alternate reality that slipped below the notice of whatever initiated the reality fork. We are presently investigating the source of the fork, though the majority of the currently-available evidence points to a girl named Haruhi Suzumiya, as the film depicts her acting in a far less benevolent role than she currently portrays.”
