Pikachu53 wasn't noticed that much for his parodies until he made "Ebenezer Hitler: A Nazi Christmas Carol", which got noticed by nhlfan40, who shared it with the community. It was so good that it single-handedly earned him Best Seasonal Parody and Best Story-based Parody of the Unterganger Awards, Parody of the Month, and Unterganger of the Month, all in December 2014.
He announced his retirement at the end of September 2018 via a video on his YouTube channel. This was supposedly due to manual reviews by Constantin Film outlined in email's from YouTube. In response, he created a second channel that hosts most, if not all, of his Downfall parodies. As of December 2019, the vast majority of the parodies in his main channel have either been set to private or removed, with the exception of “Gordon Ramsay voices Adolf Hitler”.
