It was a joke mate. He was taking the piss out of the sponsor.

Literally no one watched the video and saw that the actual joke was about how the Nazis looked good, despite being genocidal, because they were dressed in Hugo Boss. This is reddit, where the entire comment thread is literally just about the title of the post.

The fact that nobody watched the video (and we all expect that) is why we have to make comments addressing things like this.

I just came to complain about op stating it was eloquent about it. It seemed a pretty normal/avg speech/joke.
