I know Vacation Bible School organizers aren’t looking to me for advice, but I’ll give it to them anyway:
Don’t make Nazi references in your promotional videos.
I don’t care if you’re against the Nazis. Just don’t bring it up. No swastikas. No Hitler. No imagery of military attacks. Just don’t do it. (And don’t bother with references to a TV show that’s more than 40 years old, either.)

I don’t even know what this is supposed to be, but I guess Hitler’s cousin worshiped Cthulhu:
Enlist! The Crusades are back, dammit, and they need warriors!
This is the least creepy part of the whole video:
Ugh… just watch the whole thing for yourself:
