The Atlantic is calling it the "Best Nazi T-Shirt Ever." We whole-heartedly agree. People who went to "Rock for Germany," a right-wing, nationalist concert in Berlin, were fooled into wearing free shirts that at first featured pro-nationalist imagery and language but later revealed an underlying message.
When they were handed out, the shirts bore the slogan "Hardcore Rebels" in German below an image of a skull. But when people took the shirts home and washed them, the original imagery and slogan disappeared, replaced by the message "If your t-shirt can do it, you can do it too - we'll help you get away from right wing extremism."
The shirts were distributed anonymously by EXIT, a group dedicated to helping people break away from far-right groups. Bernd Wagner, EXIT's founder, said "we wanted to raise awareness about our program, especially among the young and less committed."
