    German stereotypes in UK advertising - come on, it's a wonder they didn't say something about the 1966 World Cup while they were at it.

    Also, German cancan.

    Everything they show as German is Bavarian tho. Lederhosen, mountains, the buildings etc. Not that Bavaria isn't Germany, but it's just a part of Germany.

    * full disclosure, I'm made in Stuttgart and wore a baby-tee that read "made in Germany"

    I know very little about Citroën. Seeing that Nazi ad makes me want to know even less.
