Ach du Lieber: Nazi UFOs

Iron Sky

What a fresh and exciting idea – instead of being visited by extraterrestrials from alleged “planets,” we’re being re-invaded by Nazis UFOs, which means two things: they wouldn’t be UFOs anymore, since now we know what they are. Secondly…run!

Iron Sky, a science fiction comedy about being invaded by Nazi-made flying saucers from their base on the moon (!), is set to be released in 2011 and goes something like this:

Towards the end of World War II the staff of SS officer Hans Kammler made a significant breakthrough in anti-gravity.

From a secret base built in the Antarctic, the first Nazi spaceships were launched in late ‘45 to found the military base Schwarze Sonne (Black Sun) on the dark side of the Moon. This base was to build a powerful invasion fleet and return to take over the Earth once the time was right.

Now it’s 2018, the Nazi invasion is on its way and the world is goose-stepping towards its doom. (That sentence didn’t make any sense.)

I know it’s a “comedy,” but several thoughts…

1. Significant breakthrough in anti-gravity. Since when does an SS (or “Schutzstaffel  Squadron”) officer have a background in meta-physics and applied science? I thought they just conquered people in the face.

2. If Nazis had spaceships back in 1945, they might not have had their esels handed to them by Allied Forces.

3. The Dark Side of the Moon is where Pink Floyd lives. Why didn’t they tell us about the impending Nazi disruption of our daily lives by means of science fiction in the key of A minor? Is that not their specialty?

4. Nazis had a secret base in Antarctica? Why didn’t Santa Claus tell us? Oh wait, he’s GERMAN, that’s why! I knew you couldn’t trust a guy in a red suit. Or a beard.

5. Military base on the moon. Where the hell do you plug the kaffee pot in?

Nazi-made or not, those are some cool lookin’ UFOs, uh, I mean, “nicht identifiziert fliegen saucers.” Still, I think we got a shot at kicking their with esels with heavily-armed hot-air balloons, or “Discount Luftwaffes.” In short, USOs vs. UFOs.

Go to Ironsky.net to see incredible trailers, more cool pictures and to invest in this stunning adventure. Yeah, they secured a pile ‘o deutsche marks to get this thing off the ground, but they need more and are offering investment opportunites.

Keep your eye on ’em, though. They might be using this as a scheme to channel the money into building a real base on the moon. I wouldn’t put it past ’em. Remember: When you ride alone, you ride with HITLER. So, like, join a car-sharing club today. (I don’t know what that means. I saw it on a war propaganda poster at Bed, Bath & Beyond down at the mall.)
