201 (not all are parodies)
smoglessbutton4 is a recipient of the Downfall Parody Awards (click for more info).
smoglessbutton4 is a male British Unterganger, whose YouTube channel was established on 17th September 2011, and his first Downfall parody (Hitler is informed that a train is going to kill him) was uploaded 2 days later.
smoglessbutton4 uses Windows Movie Maker and, more recently, VideoPad, for video editing, and Picasa 3, GIMP 2 and Adobe Photoshop for picture editing. He often uses audio and visual content from other sources (in addition to the Downfall film footage) in his videos. However, he also makes several parodies using only Downfall footage.
As of 9th April 2013 he has uploaded 85 Downfall parodies. He has over 200 videos on his channel - the majority of these others consist of footage from racing games, which is his other occupation whilst sitting at a computer. He currently has 276 subscribers. However, since his return in Arpil 2013, he has only uploaded Downfall Parodies to his channel.
On the 2nd February 2013 he announced that he was retiring for personal reasons, but did not rule out a return.
However, in March of 2013, another flame war was ignited on the in a thread started by Trapped Antics (which announced that Fegaltube was thankfully still alive). Robert Tolhurst, Shomronon, and others derailed the topic with 'butthurt' cynicism, resulting in criticism from others. In turn, smoglessbutton4 chipped in, venting his rage at the community, which he believed had been returning to 'harmony' before the incident. He announced that he would definitely not be returning.
The next day, however, he apologised in the forum shoutbox for his overreaction. On the 9th March 2013, he uploaded a parody about the YouTube 'One Channel' , indirectly suggesting that a full-time return might still be possible.
On 4th April 2013, three days after posting an April Fools joke that stated he was returning, smoglessbutton4 announced that a return would be forthcoming, and that he was "preparing a few kick-ass parodies ready for a spectacular return", thus confirming his intention to come out of retirement.
- smoglessbutton4's first parody was Hitler is informed that a train is going to kill him. This involved the Hitler is informed/Hitler reviews scene and consisted of Hitler ranting due to the fact that he did not believe what he had just been informed, then a train promptly gets driven into a bunker and blows it up. Trains would not appear again in smoglessbutton4's parodies until Hitler plans to drive a train, which was uploaded almost 7 months later. smoglessbutton4 later 'remastered' his first parody and provided a further explaination into how the train got to the bunker.
"Hitler's F1 race" series
- The Hitler's F1 race series is the result of what happens when smoglessbutton4's interests collide and is (statistically) the most successful of all his parodies (Number of views and 'likes'). These videos consist of Hitler competing in Formula One races and, like with almost everything he does, failing miserably. Whether it's getting revenge on Fernando Alonso or simply getting round the first corner, you can always trust on Hitler to cause some kind of chaos.
