American retailer J.C. Penny has been criticised on Twitter and Reddit for advertising a kettle that bore a remarkable similarity to Adolf Hitler.
The 10-foot tall billboard, which stands on the 405 highway in Southern California, has led several motorists to stop and take pictures, posting images of the water-boiling Nazi appliance across microblogging sites.

The stainless steel advert is also displayed on the company’s website. Naturally, Twitter offered plenty of comment on the Fuhrer-shaped stainless steel water boiler.
