So that Citroen advert which has been on out tv screens in the United Kingdom for most of April is deemed "offensive to Germans and uses too many Nazi stereotypes and symbolism which are inappropriate and tasteless."

For god's sake it is supposed to be taken tongue in cheek and be a bit of fun. Don't these stupid politicians have anything more important to concern themselves with? Anyone with a brain and a modest grasp of history knows what Nazi's was responsible for in the past but can see the favourable contribution Germany's had since (like build quality, reliable cars)

I thought the advert was a bit of fun and doubt any Germans seeing this would really genuinely be offended. This is another example of the PC brigade getting hot under the collar about nothing.

It goes on to feature an eagle statue similar to the eagle which has been part of the German arms since the Holy Roman Empire, a road sign in a blackletter script used in Germany for hundreds of years before 1946, a fencing duel, and ends in front of the 1936 Berlin Olympic Stadium, one of the most recognisable landmarks in the German capital city, and because lets face it, you can't really park outside Neuschwanstein.

The stereotype that germans build good cars is really annoying. Though I met several Nazis, I never met a car manufacturer. There has been no car manufacturer in my whole family, but they were all Nazis. My son is skilled in fencing, but he makes no cars. I eat tons of Bratwurst, but make no cars.
I wish the Schweineausländers would stop it.
Don't mention the car!

I think the Germans import Turks to build good cars don't they?
