Hilarious chess video: Hitler discovers Magnus Carlsen won't be in the chess world championships

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hello everyone,

We just received this very creative and funny video. It's been uploaded by LiquidEggProduct on Youtube. You must have heard about the well-known German film, The Downfall (Der Untergang). It is a 2004 German/Italian/Austrian epic war film directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, depicting the final ten days of Adolf Hitler's life in his Berlin bunker and Nazi Germany in 1945.

A scene from the movie has been cleverly and creatively re-subtitled to expess Hitler's angst at Magnus Carlsen not being part of the World Chess Championship cycle. Enjoy.
