While musical parodies has been around for a while, it is not until the release of Mannerherzen , with Dohnayi as one of the main actors, that untergangers begin making the connection of Justus' role in that film Bruce Berger with his Downfall one Wilhelm Burgdorf. The first known parody that ties these two characters into one is Hitler and the singing Burgdorf incident by Hitler Rants Parodies, spoofing the in-film song Alle Kinder Dieser Erde. This was the direct inspiration for the video Wilhelm Burgdorf - Greatest in the Reich by kingtom. Many other similar parodies have been produced, more so since the release of Männerherzen 2, particularly by evilrobottolhurst.
BurgdorfVEVO YouTube channel was set up around the end of 2011 to expand this sub-meme more, though the channel is now dormant.

This is a continuation of Hitler and the Singing Burgdorf incident parody by Hitler Rants Parodies. It uses the full clip from Männerherzen to create a proper music video. It might also directly inspired evilrobottolhurst to produce similar parodies that eventually make this a viable sub-meme.
