This is not the same idea. The only thing they have in common is the message "Our product changes your appearance" - which is likely to be a optician's or a hatseller's message. But Hitler and Chaplin actually existed and the style is totally different.

That's definitely the same visual, but a vastly inferior ad.

Charlie himself made fun of this comparison, and made his position quite clear on the silver screen. A nice idea, not entirely original, but what is these days.

You know what?
I'm from Germany and nearly everyone here is really upset because of this ad... The idea is good..but I'm not sure whether I should laugh or be scared about it, the past is nothing to make fun about and the fact that Hitler is used as an advertising figure is really sick..

Warum sollte man Hitler den "Respekt" erweisen, ihn nicht als Werbefigur einzusetzen?

Why should Hitler be "honoured" by not using him as an advertising figure?

In Belgium we allready cause a riot when we want to broadcast a tv-show about A. Hitlers favorite dish!
But I like it a lot!
