Nigerian copywriter uses Hitler endorsement letter to advance career.

(click letter, via) Babatunde Adebola, a copywriter at DDB Lagos Nigeria, desperately wanted to get a scholarship from the Hamburg, Germany branch of the Miami Ad School. So he wrote this racially-imbued recommendation letter in the voice of a cryogenically-preserved Führer, and sent it to the school's headmaster. He got in. Gott im Himmel. Hitler, baby. Still moving product. Still inspiring edgy creatives. (The typos/errors are probably because of the letter being translated from German for publicity purposes.)

the problem is he got in. as a copywriter, I cant see why. as a german, I cant either. as a nigerian, I wouldnt either. as a man of taste, I'd never know. this letter has no idea, and as always if there's no idea available, why not use a famous person? damn, i hate it.
