Politics: "Tails for Germany?" AfD wants to woo voters with sweets - and accidentally produces rubber penises

Promotional items from parties are often bizarre to the point of absurd: in addition to pens and lighters, there are toasters, sledges and lanterns for the voters at the polling booth.

Politics: "Tails for Germany?" AfD wants to woo voters with sweets - and accidentally produces rubber penises

Promotional items from parties are often bizarre to the point of absurd: in addition to pens and lighters, there are toasters, sledges and lanterns for the voters at the polling booth. The AfD actually wanted to be relatively down-to-earth for the election in Lower Saxony and only ordered gummy bears. What looked good in the shopping cart evokes different associations in real life.

As "Spiegel" editor Ann-Katrin Müller shows on Twitter, the AfD state association had planned blue and white packages with sweets. The party had also thought of something special for the content: it shouldn't be normal gummy bears, instead the swinging arrow from the AfD logo should stand for the candy.

Bold idea, poor implementation and content: As with the political program of the AfD, there were also serious problems with the party's gummy bears. Because what's in the bag is less reminiscent of swinging arrows and more of erect mini penises at first sight.

The ridicule on the net is now great about the accidental promotional items. In the AfD, too, people are anything but satisfied with the "very special" candy: Antonin Brousek, Berlin AfD member of the state parliament, writes ironically on Facebook "Tails for Germany?" and is annoyed by the involuntarily funny merchandise: "Red gummy bears with a permanent erection? You should put that in your mouth? We just make ourselves ridiculous with it."

However, a spokesman for the federal party sees no problems with the promotional item: The red arrow is a "sweet-tasting promotional item for the election campaign in Lower Saxony" and journalists "apparently interpreted something else" into it.

The party has certainly achieved one thing: voters will look at the AfD logo with completely different eyes in the future.
