EoZ gets results! Turkish agency pulls Hitler shampoo ad (updated)

The sickening Turkish commercial for shampoo that included actual footage of Adolf Hitler has been pulled, after days of complaints worldwide triggered by my post about it last week.

Millyet reports that the cosmetics company Biomen announced "taking into consideration the sensitivity of the Jewish community, as of today, we stopped broadcasting the ad."

My YouTube video of the commercial has over 128,000 views, and the issue was reported in all major media including Reuters, the New York Daily News, the New York Post, the Daily Mail and hundreds of other newspapers and media outlets.

UPDATE: Indeed, the advertising agency M.A.R.K.A. has removed the video from their site as well.
