A billboard along a California highway has drivers doing a double take.

Look at this!

It’s an ad for JCPenny’s new tea pot.

But it looks a lot like Hitler.

The resemblance to the Nazi leader was first pointed out on Twitter and reedit.

The company later responded to the comparison on Twitter saying the likeness was not intentional.
