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.

Oops...

Didn't see that response. But, yeah, that's the movie.

You know, there was another movie similar to this. The Nazis had gone to the moon.



I watched it on Netflix. It was listed under SciFi but was fucking hilarious!

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

Umhhh...'The Man In The High Tower' is a classic sci-fi novel by Philip K Dick.

Gee...lemmesee...had the Axis won, there would probably be constant
electronic surveillance, militarization of civil servants, never-ending periferal
wars, relentless state sponsored propaganda, eroding civil rights and a plan
to RFID-chip the popul...oh....wait... 13.gif
