J.C. Penney didn't think its teapot looked like Hitler, but enough people did that the company took down a billboard and removed the product from its website.
It was a mild tempest about a teapot, but J.C. Penney took it seriously enough to remove a billboard featuring a tea kettle that some people thought resembled Adolf Hitler.
The ad, on Interstate 405 near Culver City, Calif., got lots of attention over the past few days as people noticed that the kettle bore an odd resemblance to the leader of the Third Reich.
The $40 kettle had black details that could conjure an image of Hitler's mustache and parted hair. With a little more imagination, the kettle spout could look like a right arm raised in a Nazi salute.
As of Wednesday, it was taken down. The Michael Graves-designed kettle was also gone from jcpenney.com.
I am relieved, now i dont have to worry about......an army of Nazi teapots on the rise.
what is the world comming to when we see hitler attacking us from a teapot
