We never thought we’d say this, but it turns out that Hitler’s quite a funny guy.
Now before you start sharpening your pitchforks and lighting your torches let us explain. Netflix have just purchased the rights to a Borat-style film called Look Who’s Back, which imagines how the dead Nazi leader would react if he woke up in modern day Berlin and was forced to adapt to the modern world.
The film’s extremely popular in Germany and it looks hilarious, as the now ex-Fuhrer bumbles around Berlin being harassed by Segway’s, confused by yoghurt and baffled by computers.
The stand out moment of the trailer is when a young girl introduces Hitler to the Internet, and he of course reacts by googling ‘world domination’ – because what else would he google?
The film is reportedly making its debut on April 9 and is based on Timur Vermes’ best-selling novel of the same name.
Twitter had a rather mixed reception to the news…
Implicit alt-right message of Netflix's "Man in the High Castle": Hey, if Hitler had lived, maybe he wouldn't have been such a bad old guy.

Although it looks pretty funny we can see why people would be Fuhrer-ous about it…
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
