Amazon's "Man in the High Castle" Advertisements Are Nazi-Tastic

Source: Amazon
I promise, this blog isn't going to turn into just an ad for different TV shows. But I have to say...tell me this doesn't get your attention.

In case you're wondering, The Man in the High Castle is a TV series set in an alternate reality where the Axis powers won World War II. The United States has been divided up between Germany and Japan with a neutral zone in between.

Unfortunately, the ads have caused a bit of a controversy. Amazon put banners on New York subway cars making the seats look like the Nazi-run American flag (depicting the American flag with an iron cross) on one side and the Japan-run American flag (depicting the rising sun) on the other, as it's featured on the show.

Commuters complained, and the ads came down. But Amazon has no regrets. I guess there's no such thing as bad publicity.

Update: Originally this article said the flags had swastikas. The flags have the Iron Cross, instead.

What do you think of the ads? Would they make you want to watch the show?
