Is it true there's no such thing as bad publicity? We have to wonder whether that was Amazon Studios' stance when it approved an ad campaign that covered a New York City subway car with Nazi and Imperial Japan symbols.

The ads were part of a campaign promoting Amazon's new drama, "The Man in the High Castle." The series is based on a novel that outlines an alternate future in which the Axis powers won World War II. (Video via Amazon Studios)
