Marketing Hitler

First there was the Hitler sperm being used to market a brand of condoms.  And now, Hitler is being used in an ad campaign for, of all things, stress-busting tea. The idea (I think) is that Hitler wouldn’t have been so stressed out, and thus so nasty and evil, if he had had some nice stress-relieving tea.

I can’t believe I even have to say this, but I do not think that Hitler is an appropriate or effective marketing device/character.
