The fact of its being virtually subliminal may be part of the point - as if he's sending the message 
straight to his people's unconscious: he is Hitler; or a complete cunt, which is not that different.

an odd moustache/comb-over/taste in trousers. The whole point could be to counteract the hatred his 
tyranny will inevitably inspire with a sense of guilt about mocking him.
