DReaperF4 is an Spanish YouTube user who indirectly started the Downfall/Hitler rants parody meme.


DReaperF4 created his account on 26 May 2006. On August 10, 2006 he posted a video, titled “Sim Heil: Der untersim” and subbed in Spanish, that shows Hitler fuming over the lack of new features in the demo trial of Microsoft’s Flight Simulator X, which was later released in October 2006. Then on August 30th, DReaperF4 uploaded the English sub version of Sim Heil upon popular request in the comments, making the joke accessible to the rest of Flight Sim fans on YouTube. Nearly an year later, the YouTube user MOTURK49 reuploaded the Hitler gets banned from Xbox Live, and thus many more people began to follow his example, starting the Downfall parodies meme.

This parody was thought to be the very first parody made before the video La Caida by Youtube user Pajarojuarez was found.

The original YouTube video was deleted upon copyright claim by the film studio on December 26, 2009, as documented by MIT’s YouTomb project.


DReaperF4 commented on his channel that he will not be reuploading the original video, because he received a final warning from YouTube. Instead, he uploaded it on Megaupload, only to be later removed. However, another YouTube user, Twix101, manage to download it from Megaupload before it got removed and reuploaded it under the name of Hitler critica FSX. On April 2012, Twix101 closed his account and the video is no longer available.

The video was later reuploaded by MabusParodies on 7 July 2012.


DReaperF4 no longer makes Downfall parodies and his channel has only 3 videos and 30 subscribers.
