Not long ago, every low moment (subject to interpretation) in culture, high and low, big and small, became the target of Hitler’s anger in frustration in a series of parody videos based on the film “Downfall.”
Based on a critical scene (are there any other kind?) from Sunday’s “Bad” episode, the viral videos feature the characters played by Dean Norris and Betsy Brandt taking in something — almost anything — in horror. Like “Downfall,” their reactions can be tailored to almost anything. Unlike “Downfall,” you don’t need to write the dialogue. You just need to watch them watching things.
… but it just snowballed from there …
… with all kinds of twists.
Perhaps nothing will quite be as clever as those “Downfall” parodies, but let’s face it, they had played out a bit. The same fate will no doubt befall Hank and Marie — at which point, I’m confident, we’ll see Hank and Marie watching Hank and Marie with horrified disgust.
