Takarazuka to promote Pond's cream. So far, so good. All the chosen performers are in costume, but one is dressed as a uniformed Nazi. Fine for her – she's in character and the photo is from a performance. Not so fine for Pond's. Hint to advertising agencies: you generally don't use Nazi stormtroopers to promote anything. (While cross-dressing Nazis promoting cosmetics borders on the comedic – especially linking her to the "cold" cream product – I don't think that was the intention. Nor would it have been a funny ad if it was!)
The main copy simply reads: "We are using Pond's cream."
Hmm, a taste "fail" in the blindingly obvious category.
