Hey Thailand, Let's Cool Down the Hitler Videos, Huh?

As some of you may know, I used to live in Thailand, and I have almost nothing but fond memories of it. This music video from Thai punk-ish band "Slur", however, is not great:

Now, the video does offer a disclaimer beforehand assuring us that the video "has no intentions to insult any individual or groups," but this is basically the "no homo" of disclaimers. Bad news for Slur: dressing up like Nazis is probably gonna insult (and, more likely, I would wager, offend) most people that, say, saw their families killed by the very Nazis you dress as. If it's not okay for Prince Harry to do (sorry, ladies), then it is certainly not kosher (sorry, everyone) for a Thai punk band to.

Might I suggest sticking to super-gay off-tempo choreography in street clothes?
