Alec Griffiths is a Youtube channel that features parodies of the movie Downfall (Der Untergang).  The channel is run by Alec Griffiths.


Alec Griffiths started making parodies shortly after seeing a parody called, "Hitler reacts to Donald Trump Running for President ."  Finding the video to be quite humorous, Alec quickly discovered that an entire universe of Hitler parodies existed on Youtube.

Alec's first Downfall parody, created on 6 July, 2016, lacked an official title, but featured Hitler attempting to learn the results of the U.S. 2016 Presidential Election.  This video was subsequently joined by six others, together portraying Hitler reacting badly to the election results.  None of these original videos were ever uploaded to Youtube.  Alec credits Hitler Rants Parodies as the main inspiration for making his own parodies.

On 21 September, 2016, Alec Griffiths created his Youtube Channel .  The first parody he uploaded was titled, "Gary Johnson, the Failure."  Although the original video has since been removed, a copy was uploaded by Alec's brother and can be viewed here.  Since then, Alec has uploaded over 100 parodies to his channel.

After the U.S. 2016 Presidential Election, Alec opted to take down a number of his parodies that featured Hitler reacting to current political issues.  This move was mainly due to the fact that these political parodies seemed unpopular among his viewers.

On 23 May, 2017, Alec Griffiths uploaded a parody that indicated he was going to retire from Unterganging.  However, a few weeks later, he changed his mind .

In June 2018, Alec's series  The Fate of the Parody  won Best Series and Parody of the Month in the Downfall Community Awards - June 2018.

In May 2020, after a period of inactivity, Alec retired from Unterganging and deleted all his parodies from his channel.
