Adidas fails to notice a certain resemblance

…between their design of the number 4 on the latest jerseys for the German National Team and the exceedingly distinctive Nazi SS lettering. I mean, obviously it’s not the same, but it’s dangerously close.

I wonder how many design committees it went through. Did no one really notice?!

Haha, even down to the colors!

This had to be deliberate on someone's end; it's altogether too dead-on to be a sad coincidence.

It went through design committees comprised of young people who know nothing about the past.

Well, if the designers of this grew up in Germany they may have never seen the SS symbol. Nazi imagery is outlawed and even legitimate historical use in museums and textbooks isn’t broad. When I went to school there we would have periodical mentions of the Nazis and the Holocaust and it would be very earnest and serious and then you’d go for months without hearing or seeing anything about it in culture, school, museums. They don’t really like to talk about it.
