Have you seen the advertisement for the new chocolate-flavored Altoids that features an explosion—presumably, a symbolic explosion of flavor—in the shape of a mushroom cloud?
Most Japanese or with Japanese roots had got offended by this ad in the US. They did find this advertisement extremely offensive and callous to the millions affected by the bombs dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima in WWII. Which most people have asked to withdraw this cheap attempt for the chocolate ad.
