Amazon Covers Subway Car in Axis Power Insignia for New Show



-In an attempt to promote their show, The Man in the High Castle (from a Philip K Dick novel), an ad agency covered subway seats in New York with these flags as a way to "immerse" the rider into a world where the Allied forces lost World War II.

-MTA has defended the campaign. "The updated standards prohibit political advertisements. Unless you’re saying that you believe Amazon is advocating for a Nazi takeover of the United States, then it meets the standards. They’re advertising a show."

-It's been pointed out by the anti defamation league how exploitive and tone deaf it all feels since there's no context explaining that it's for a show.
