It’s not enough for the Nazis to simply subjugate the planet. When it comes to America (and, likely, the rest of the world), it’s all about taking Germany’s culture and forcing it on the local territories, to further enhance the Nazi Reich and irrevocably solidify their empire. That’s why the Nazis are even imposing their will on pop culture, taking what would have been iconic American TV shows and producing them with a uniquely German attitude. Last week we showed you Liesel, a popular TV program starring a plucky girl and her loyal fire-spewing Panzerhund. Today we have something a bit different: a TV game show that’s part propaganda and part preparation for the Great Changeover Day, when the American Territories officially adopt the German language. Watch an episode of German… or Else! right now to get a feel for life under Nazi tyranny in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.
German… or Else!
Already the most popular game show in the American Territories after just one staffel(season), German… or Else! is the fun and informative game show that prepares the American population of the Greater Reich to transition into their glorious German-only speaking future. Learn how to say undefeatable while you laugh at the silly contestants’ grammatical errors. Impress your friends at school by flawlessly pronouncing Herrenvolk– a word worth 200 points! The fun never ends in this instant-classic German game show. German… or Else! is filmed on location in the LA Media Tower.
