Photo manipulation software company Finishizer released its new Fail Hitler ad. The humorous print ad takes a standard black and white historical photo of the German dictator giving a traditional Nazi salute at a rally and manipulates it to show everyone else responding by giving him the finger. The company slogan at the bottom of the page declares 'The Best Finish You Can Imagine.'

This humorous Fail Hitler ad, made in and for Poland, takes a tongue-in-cheek jab at a dark time in history while advertising photography software. The manipulation is very high quality and blended into the photograph very well done and displays a near-universal opinion in picture form. This Fail Hitler ad is very memorable and an effective piece of marketing. Stats for History-Changing Photo Manipulations Trending: Older & Warm
