Fanta Ad Pulled in Germany After Nazi Gaffe

March 4, 2015  

Nazis foiled a Fanta ad this week, after Coca-Cola inc. pulled a TV spot in Germany because it failed to mention the Third Reich’s role in creating the popular sports drink. 

The ad, entitled “Good Old Times,” was to honor Fanta’s 75th anniversary – and describes its creation due to a shortage of supplies “during World War II” – without mentioning Nazi Germany. 

The clip was immediately met with intense backlash online, according to the Express – prompting it to be pulled from television. 

“Fanta was invented in Germany during the Second World War but the 75-year-old brand had no association with Hitler or the Nazi party,” a Coca-Cola spokeswoman stated to the daily. 

She added that the video was “meant to evoke positive childhood memories” and was not meant to be offensive.
