Clever intern turns to Hitler

An enterprising would-be intern has created (yet another) hilarious parody of the popular Adolf Hitler video clip to boost his chances of securing an internship at a well-known local Cape Town-based web agency.

Impressed with his ingenuity and creativity, the local agency, Quirk eMarketing, has apparently called the intern back for another interview.

The spoof clip centres around an excerpt from the film Der Untergang, and in the Quirk eMarketing parody a disgusted and furious Hitler thumbs his nose at the company after finding out he hasn’t been accepted for an intern position, even after making his CV “perfect”.

It is a hilarious and well-crafted 3 minutes and 46 seconds of good copywriting that pokes fun at the company’s CEO Rob Stokes, why working for Brandhouse is not an option, and even how ‘Ma Hitler’ has an RSS feed and that everything is about being digital these days.

Quirk has confirmed the parody is indeed “legitimate” and that it’s not a clever marketing ploy by the company.

It’s quite funny and the intern has sure got Memeburn’s vote. View the clip for yourself, below:
