I know the Hitler/Downfall re-subtitling meme is so 2008, but Ground Zero just sent me this video, and it has something for everyone. Anime and Dragonball fans can marvel at Hitler’s incredibly well-supported problems with the changes to the original manga, and anime haters can point out that liking anime is tantamount to Nazism.
Please — no one tell Hitler than they turned Chun Li from a Hong Kong cop to a concert pianist in the new Street Fighter flick, okay?
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
