The internet giant is pushing its new drama, Man In The High Castle, which takes the question ‘What if the Nazis had won?’ and runs with it.
As the show imagines an alternate present where the US is under German and Japanese rule, plastering subway carriages with imperial imagery may have seemed like a good idea in a marketing meeting.
The ads fall short of daubing swastikas all over the place but do feature a reference to the Nazi iron cross (which takes the place of the stars in the American flag) and the rising sun imagery used by the Japanese empire during World War II.
In another online ad, the Statue of Liberty is seen giving a Nazi salute.
Sieg heil Amazon. That's highly offensive to a hell of a lot of people.
Anything for a buck I guess.
