So don’t get me wrong when I say I was a bit taken a back at this video from Andy Samberg, promoting the upcoming MTV Music Awards.It just seems a bit unusual coming from a channel and site that has also put out a movie which has celebrities reading stories from the diaries of young people who experienced firsthand the terror of daily life during the Holocaust:

Plus the Samberg clip isn’t funny. And that’s the most offensive kind of Holocaust humor.
