Wilhelm Burgdorf Bruce Berger - Alle Kinder dieser Erde.flv

PedoBurgdorf doing his best.

The Singing Burgdorf is a parody series that features Burgdorf, or rather, his actor Justus von Dohnányi singing. The parodies uses clips from Downfall and both Männerherzen ("Men's Heart / Men In The City") 1 and 2, assuming any character portrayed by Dohnányi as Burgdorf. When the clips used are non-Downfall they are both actor and musical parodies.


While musical parodies has been around for a while, it is not until the release of Mannerherzen [2009], with Dohnányi 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.
