A company in Turkey is using images of monstrous German dictator Adolf Hitler to sell shampoo.

An advertisement for Biomen, a Turkish shampoo, features Hitler giving an animated speech, urging people to buy the product.

“If you are not wearing a woman’s dress, you should not use her shampoo either,” the voiceover (as Hitler) says.

The commercial has aired for a week and Jewish groups worldwide are already calling for it to be removed immediately, Fox News Philly reported.

“It’s totally unacceptable to make use of Hitler, the most striking example of cruelty and savagery,” the Turkish Jewish Community said in a statement.

The Anti-Defamation League, a group founded to fight anti-semitism, has also condemned the ad. Abraham H. Foxman, the national director of the ADL and a Holocaust survivor, called the ad “disgusting” in a statement.

“It is an insult to the memory of those who perished in the Holocaust, those who survived, and those who fought to defeat the Nazis,” Foxman said.
