So what do you think? Fashion statement? Over the top? Or effective?
Thumbs down. It's in incredibly poor taste. I wonder what made them think it was a good idea to associate their product with Hitler?
On the other hand, Hitler gets tossed around so much these days in the US, he's really lost a lot of his old pure evil impact. Dr. Pepper should start using him in their advertising. They can flash pictures of all kinds of politicians Democrat and Republican, and redo the words of their song:
"I'm a Hitler
You're a Hitler
He's a Hitler
She's a Hitler
Wouldn't you like to be a Hitler too?"
Italy was part of the axis of evil in 1939..
OTOH, Muso was the only national leader who stood up to Hitler when it counted. And made Hitler back down.
By 1939, that was no longer the case.
corny and stale. fuck them
Stupid, but it's interesting to read the perspectives and objectives of some of these groups.
WearMocked - Tommy Hitler
I think some people are WAY too squeamish about Hitler. He's, at this point, an icon to be exploited. I think their campaign was bold and likely effective. Those that knee-jerk about these kind of things are dull and predictable.
They weren't promoting being a Nazi, so I can't really see the problem. If anything they were poking fun at those kinds of ideas. Good for the ad agency I say.
Given the way the top leadership swung, I think they would have loved dressing in pink. And probably did a good portion of the time.
What Hitler did to Europe and the effect he had on the entire world cannot be dismissed as a lack of fashion sense. The poster is in extremely poor taste.
Muso? Are you referring to Mussolini, who was an ally of Hitler?
