The starting scene of Nazi Zombie Army will be familiar to any fan of the Hitler Downfall parody videos on Youtube. In a dimly-lit Berlin bunker, three nervous generals exchange uncomfortable glances as they prepare to tell their Führer some very bad news. Except this time it’s not that his Xbox Live account has been banned, or that Chuck Norris has been dispatched to take him down.
In fact, their message bears much more resemblance to the Downfall original: Germany’s loss of the Second World War is imminent. What doesn’t resemble the original however, is Hitler’s response. “The Fatherland will not fall! Execute Plan Z!” he cries, as he orders that droves of festering zombies be unleashed upon Europe in a last-ditch attempt to defeat the Allies. The Discovery Channel this is not.
