The original film from which the clip is taken is the 2004 "Der Untergang"...I'd been wondering about that myself for some time and had been lazy. This use of the clip is by far one of the best I've seen (but a slight misnomer, as it can't seem to decide if it's against digital humanities or digital scholarship). Jim's point is well-taken.

Best,

Dennis

Very funny, and I'm amused at how well and for how many different things
that video clip has been used (anyone know its origin?), but I'm curious if
the people who created it distinguish between being able to get information
online and being able to get an education online?  If there was nothing more
to education than "getting the content," then there is no distinction
between the two, but that's just not the case.

The source of the clip is "Der Untergang" (Downfall, 2004): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0363163/
