Adolph Hitler Shampoo

The New York Daily News reports that a Turkish company is using Adolph Hitler to sell shampoo:

A Turkish shampoo ad for men featuring Adolf Hitler has been slammed by Jewish groups, but the agency has not yanked it.
The commercial features black-and-white footage of the Nazi leader delivering a speech with a voiceover that says: “If you don’t wear women’s clothes then don’t use a women’s shampoo. Now there’s a 100% men’s shampoo, Biomen. If you’re a man you use Biomen.”
Jewish organizations in Turkey and the Anti-Defamation League have asked the agency to pull the 12-second commercial, which has been airing for a week.

Here is the ad in question:

We are confused as to why anyone would think the ad was a good idea, unless, of course, they are Nazis. But then, why should this be allowed? Why aren’t Turkish people up in arms about the ad?

UPDATE:
And the ad has been pulled after protests from the Jewish community. However, the company’s owner still doesn’t see anything wrong with the ad.
