'Amazon Plastered The New York Subway With Nazi Imagery In Worst Marketing Idea Ever'

'As marketing campaigns go, covering the New York subway with Nazi imagery must surely come under ‘Never Ever Go There’.

But that’s exactly what Amazon has done - and New Yorkers are not hugely impressed. '

Coming to think of it, it seems to be an old trend.

Subtle sorts of Soviet imagery rose to my attention over here in the 90's already...
then there were mass grave-looking SS Totenkopf skulls on everything
for a good while. Etc.

The Eagle is kind of ûberinyourface, I must say blink.gif

Oh well, sure catches attention and publicity.

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. 13.gif Anything for a buck I guess.

Viral marketing for a new series. I've seen a few ads on tv.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
