Hitler finds out that Capital won't play Alexandra Burke's Elephant...
Going by the Wednesday midweeks, Alexandra Burke's Elephant (which, suffice to say, is fucking amazing), is No. 2 in the charts - behind the seemingly never-ending dominance of Gotye. Some radio stations have done the 'ol sneaky and subtly added Elephant to their playlists (despite previously shunning it) now that its popularity has been proved. But Capital, it seems, a still being rather cautious, as this hilariously amusing video centres around.
Now, I've seen countless variations on the Hitler video, but this ranks up there as one of my favourites and neatly summarises many of my own issues with the politics of radio playlisting.
