The Greatest Propaganda Film Ever Made

I'm so glad someone has finally put this on YouTube:

Update: A reader, "PapayaSF," passes along a similar film from the crew at Atmo. Entertaining as it is, that clip was made by people already swimming in the mash-up milieu. The short posted above, usually known as Lambeth Walk—Nazi Style, was made during World War II by an obscure film editor who wasn't raised on a diet of reedited movie trailers and music videos. He just wanted to reduce the Nazis to absurdity, and he did an inspired job of it, though I gather it still took a few years for Hitler's regime to fall.
