South Korean Commercials with Nazi Symbols
In a report by CNN.com, a South Korean cosmetics company, Coreana Cosmetics Co., has put out an ad campaign for one of its products that uses Nazi symbolism in the ads. Did the costume designer who was responsible do this on purpose using the Nazi symbols in their ads (one of them is the Nazi's eagle symbol)? The answer is yes! "Seo Sang-hee, confirmed the ad was meant to invoke a Nazi soldier and Hitler, which she said symbolize "revolution" in keeping with the lotion's "revolutionary" dual functions. Seo said the commercial was not designed to promote Hitler, but rather the idea that the cosmetics will succeed in both East and West, which Hitler failed to do."
