Advertising fail – ‘Hitler kettle’ ad goes viral
A BILLBOARD advert in the U.S for a kettle has gone viral after motorists noticed it resembled Hitler.
The advert, for a new kettle at retailer JC Penney, was featured on a billboard beside a motorway in Los Angeles.
One motorist who noticed the similarities uploaded a picture of the billboard to reddit, where it began to go viral.
"I saw this yesterday and my boyfriend told me I was crazy, now I feel better that I'm not the only one who saw this,” user 4lavalencia said on Reddit.
Iwan Thomas tweeted: “1% Kettle 99% Hitler....”
Even Stephen Fry tweeted about the ad, saying: “A kettle. That looks like Hitler. Just because.”
