Newspaper Uses Nazi Soldier for Cremation Ad


Wow, it seems like using pictures of Nazis in your advertisements is becoming the new fad, with Donald Trump recently featuring some Nazi soldiers in a political ad, and now a funeral home in Jefferson City running an ad starring a young Nazi soldier.


The ad, ran in the Jefferson City news Tribune, was advertising cremation services from a local funeral home. The funeral home, Millard Family Funeral Chapels, ironically chose the slogan, “Cremation with Integrity” to accompany the profile of the young Nazi soldier, proving once and for all that the universe does indeed have a sense of humour.

The newspaper quickly owned up to the mistake, publishing an apology on their Facebook page.
