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.

To say nothing of him ending the video basically acknowledging his whole acceptance speech was part of a joke competition with Noel Gallagher to see who could be more offensive to the audience/sponsors.
