Dubai Gym Uses Nazi Death Camp Image to Entice People Who Want to Lose Weight


A tasteless Auschwitz ad for a gym in Dubai is getting attention around the world. Phil Parkinson, the gym's owner, who apologized on Facebook and Twitter after the ad went viral, also says the ad was a success:

“A huge number people have researched or Googled… our YouTube channel has shot up, our [Facebook] group page has got an hundred extra members in minutes and we have had about five times as many enquiries as before. It has got to the point I am nervous that I can’t cater for demand.”
