UKIP Nigel Farage

Nigel Farage’s Ukip springtime conference was gate crashed by a Nazi invasion to publicise Mel Brooks’ musical ‘the Producers’ as the party leader delivered his general election 2015 pledges.

Interrupting Farage’s speech, the stunt saw Nazi models high-kick to ‘Springtime For Hitler’ while flanking a white tank to promote the production's new tour.

The stunt, produced by creative agency Taylor Herring, hijacked Ukip’s unveiling of its general election manifesto at Margate, Kent to promote the new touring production of acclaimed musical comedy the Producers.
