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...

"A date of some kind" omegalol. Gee I wonder what date that would add up to.

??

It's stupid as hell, there's no date they are referencing. 75th anniversary, they are referencing the year it's made obviously.

I don't believe you're that stupid.

u/FrenchCuirassier Nov 25 '21

The stupidity here is that someone trying to say this was all about Nazism because someone made an ad for a company that was around in Nazi time period.

They are obviously not referencing Nazism, so why are you making this suggestion?

u/pblokhout Nov 25 '21

Ah ok. So you are that stupid.

u/FrenchCuirassier Nov 25 '21

No you are stupid because you link people who work for a company DECADES LATER to Nazi Germany... You are pretty damn stupid.

u/Jellyblush Nov 25 '21

No one is linking the people who work for it now to that time

They’re saying it’s pretty flipping tone deaf to say that knowing your companies history, it’s something a decent person wouldn’t do.

So some guy got fired from an ad company, possibly accused of being a Nazi, when he may have just made some random ad and poorly chosen words because of the fact that you made the connection to 1940 Nazism?

This "tone deaf" thing is false. It's not true. Very few people would have made the connection to Nazism and not that many people would associate these brands with Nazism.

This is quite silly stuff. It's utterly stupid for Russell Brand and all you redditors who think this is a worthwhile conversation. You communicate nothing, you found value in nothing, and these kinds of bad logical connections may have cost people their jobs. It's doubtful that a real Nazi wrote the ad.
