Hitler finds out about remix culture during his lifetime


In 1941 or '42 depending who you believe, the British Ministry of Information edited clips of Leni Riefenstahl's Triumph of the Will to show Nazis marching in step to a popular song of the time, "The Lambeth Walk". They passed this short propaganda remix film to newsreel companies. It's possible that Hitler viewed it or heard about it, although he probably didn't yell at his generals as we'd like to imagine.
