The account hopped on the meme-marketing trend and soared to success.
Last week, actor-writer-director Taika Waititi's trailer for the satirical comedy, Jojo Rabbit, dropped.
The New Zealand-born, Polynesian-Jewish triple threat is set to play an imaginary friend to a young boy. That imaginary friend? Adolf Hitler.
Today, Jojo Rabbit's official Twitter account began its marketing strategy with a bang. The account hopped on the meme-marketing trend by adding the most absurd and hysterical subtitles to a scene from the 2004 historical-drama film, Downfall. He quote tweeted the meme, replying, "Haaaaaa I forgot about this stupid meme. Now I like it. #JojoRabbit #F**kYouShitler," and followed up with, "No I didn't make it. I'm too lazy." If the movie is anywhere close to how funny the video is, Jojo Rabbit will be a hit.

The Cocteau Twins' 1990 masterpiece is still the blueprint for dream pop.
For a band whose lyrics were famously difficult to make out most of the time, the Cocteau Twins left an indelible impact on the world of pop music.
The Scottish trio emerged in the 1980s as some of the most notable pioneers of dream pop, a subgenre of alternative rock defined by airy, sublime sonic textures. But it was their sixth album, Heaven or Las Vegas—which turns 30 today—that truly withstood the test of time, affirming the Cocteau Twins' status as perhaps the most important dream pop act of all time.
Now that Banksy's "Flower Thrower" trademark has been revoked, anyone can profit off his work.
This week anonymous street artist Banksy officially lost the European trademark to his "Flower Thrower" mural.
The guerrilla graffiti artist had engaged in a prolonged legal battle with the small greeting card company Full Colour Black—which was selling products featuring the image of a Palestinian man throwing a bouquet of flowers. But now a panel at the European Union Intellectual Property Office has announced their decision to revoke the artist's trademark on the grounds that he could not definitively prove himself to be the mural's creator.
