Israeli embassy officials on Friday said the use of German tyrant Adolf Hitler in an advertising campaign for potato chips in Thailand was "disgusting."

The campaign on local Thai television shows Hitler in military uniform tasting the chips and giving the Nazi salute. The ad ends with Hitler in front of a Nazi flag as the swastika changes into the logo of the crisp brand."I think that the advertisement is in some ways disgusting; it's not something you laugh at. I don't laugh at it even though it is making fun of him," said an spokeswoman at the Israeli embassy in Bangkok.
