Why would Asda look to Dad’s Army for its price wars TV ad?

The big paper arrowheads are based on the programme titles, and there’s a ska instrumental backing track based on the music.

I can’t see it / hear it without mentally singing along: ‘Who do you think you are kidding, Mr Hitler’.

Surely the Walmart-owned Asda are not suggesting that Jewish-founded Tesco are Nazis?

Note to young people: Dad’s Army was a comedy show featuring the Home Guard in the second world war.
