2017 is turning out to be a disturbingly great year for Nathan Fielder’s Holocaust awareness-focused jacket line, Summit Ice. Last month, Fielder revived the season 3 segment by opening up a pop-up Summit Ice store in Vancouver, and thanks to the Trump administration, it’s tragically taken on much more prescience now that anti-Semitic comments – or full Holocaust denial – are back in the news again in a big way.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer took this to new heights yesterday when he said during his daily briefing – during Passover, no less – that Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons and “was not using the gas on his own people in the same way that Assad is doing” and even referred to concentration camps as “Holocaust centers.” Spicer has since apologized for the comments, but given his obvious, glaring ignorance about even the most basic Holocaust knowledge, Nathan Fielder decided to do him a favor by sending him his very own Summit Ice jacket. It’s time to Deny Nothing, Mr. Spicer:
Comedy Central still hasn’t announced a season 4 premiere date for Nathan for You yet, but the revival of Summit Ice has certainly made the wait an entertaining one.
