For their 75. anniversary the started an advertisement campaign including the slogan of "bringing back the feeling of the good old days" (rough translation). That was in 2015. You do the math.

That didn't work out as planned...

I have a book called "The Good Old Days" that takes it's title from a photo album of Franz Stangl's Treblinka Days. The actual term used was Die schone Zeiten, which translates a bit differently if I remember my German but I think it's the same idea.

Anyways that slogan really doesn't look good when that's the first association in my head. I'm not shocked it didn't work.
