Basterds Goes Viral - Fredrick Zoller's Nation's Pride Trailer
This isn't really a true ARG viral or anything, but it is pretty damn cool anyway. Apple has debuted a trailer for the German WWII film Nation's Pride starring Nazi hero Fredrick Zoller. What the heck is Nation's Pride? It's the movie-within-a-movie that plays an integral part in the plot of Inglourious Basterds. In the movie, this has its world premiere at a theater being run by Shosanna Dreyfus, and everyone last prominent German figure, including Adolf Hitler, will be attending the premiere, which is exactly why the Basterds show up there as well (to kill ’em all). This trailer was dubbed in English, so it is still watchable.
Nation's Pride was actually directed by Eli Roth in real life, and bits and pieces of it are shown in Basterds.
Watch the viral trailer for Fredrick Zoller's Nation's Pride:
During World War II, a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as "the Basterds" are chosen to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis.

Inglourious Basterds is both written and directed by the infamous Quentin Tarantino, of everything from Reservoir Dogs to Pulp Fiction to Kill Bill to Death Proof previously. The Weinstein Company and Universal have partnered to bring us Tarantino's WWII masterpiece in all of its brilliant glory.
