The "Downfall" of the Cowboys

Although our attention is firmly fixed on the upcoming Super Bowl, we should not forget the devastation that has been wrought upon the followers of teams who were knocked out along the way. This clip is for them.

That was full of more win than Tom Brady's athletic supporter!

You guys are like days behind on this! But still funny.

As a Cowboys fan, I personally found this hilarious!!! My friends would say this is "me", in mourning after their playoff loss, but that's not true. I only finished 3rd in my fantasy league this year. FUNNY STUFF!

Hitler would be just another bandwagon cowgirls fan.

Awesome, made my morning.

I think it's an insult to Hitler to call him a Cowboys fan.

"Yeah and Kobe is better than Jordan!"

Epic

Next year Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson vacation in Hitler's Secret Bunker.

any correlation between hitler being a cowboys fan and having only 1 testicle?

Oh what might have been:
1. Girl who comes in the back could have had a Jessica Simpson face (presuming you could alter the video a la Beattie's cartoons)
2. Instead of the Hitler caption reading "At least I get to see the Patriots go 19-0 (or was it 18-0)," it could have said, "At least I get to see Brett Favre in the SB" while the man sweating in the corner says, "Uhh, sir, ... umm," trying to figure out how to tell him that Eli beat Favre too (or was the video made before that game?)

That is seriously funny shit. When my brother told me it was taken from 'Downfall' I couldn't see any way in which it could possibly be funny, but I was very wrong.

Just watched this again, whoever did this should win some sort of Nobel Prize

Various iterations of this have been floating around for about 8 months. The first one I saw concerned football of the association kind. Arsenal vs Tottenham.

The funniest thing I've seen for a very long time.

Re 19:

yeah, I just saw a Blu-ray vs HD-DVD one.

it seems like hitler surrounds himself with a lot of giants fans

23
by Dev (not verified) :: Fri, 01/25/2008 - 3:50pm

That was so unrealistic. Hitler would have known that it is spelled "lose" and not "loose". And he would have said "played well" rather than "played good".

Still, it was fun.

Now you all have to read the Onion article: Jessica Simpson Completes Plan to Destroy the Cowboys Season.

Wow. I haven't laughed this hard in a really long time. Thanks for sharing!

Priceless. What about this one? (Link in my name) I'm still not quite over that loss yet but that was hilarious.

I preferred the Onion's "Jessica Simpson Complete's Elaborate Plan to Destroy Cowboy's Season".

Link in name.

I can't wait for the second version. when he goes into shock and screams out... "How could the stinkin' Giants beat the Patriots? !"
