Hitler – Pop Culture Icon?

March 1, 2008


After my post about Mao’s portraits in Restaurants (See below), I received an email from a pal pointing out the phenomenon of Hitler themed restaurants in India, Korea and other parts of Asia. It seems Hitler provides a hip vibe there for wining and dining.

Considering the issues raised by the Archibald Hitler painting controversy, I have assembled an amusing selection of images for Idea Fix. The prize for funniest has to go to Hilters’ Cross – for the by line “From small bites to Mega”. Perhaps Uber, might have been a better turn of phrase?

Hitler has been a large figure in post World 2 pop culture in film, TV, comics, etc. To see how big, here is a wiki link to a lot of the stuff that is around.
