If you drive drunk, you ARE Hitler.

(click ad, via) Hitler remains the go-to historical figure for both PSAs and for moving product. Worldwide, he's been seen fighting smoking, AIDS, and dog breeders for PETA. He's also selling tea, HP flash drives, faster internet, and German men's hats. He's even advancing copywriters' careers.
Here, in an Argentinian PSA via Advertisers Without Borders, he (played by an actor named Marcelo Vilaro) attempts to shame evil drunk drivers off the road. Side note: Argentina was of course a safe haven for Nazis post WWII.

DRUNKEN DRIVING MAKES YOU LOSE ALL RESPECT FOR LIFE

REALLY! / WIRKLICH!

Adolph Hitler would have been a model PETA activist

Adolph Hitler was a vegetarian - although it is widely known that in his early years he would have a lapse and indulge in the odd liver dumpling. He was a hater of hunting and cared for the company of animals more than of people and had many dogs for companions over the years. His final hours were spent in the company of his favorite dog, "Blondi".

Was it really necessary to digitally retouch his eyes to make them the perfect shade of Aryan blue?
