How disrespectful and offensive could the Pepsi owned Doritos possible be?
Doritos, the body of Christ, gee Pepsi, why didn’t you just make it the ultimate Christian insult and have Diet Pepsi as the blood of Our Saviour as well?
Doritos and Pepsi MAX Crash the Super Bowl is creating quite an uproar with their controversial commercial titled: Feed the Flock. It has garnered so much negative reaction that the ad was pulled from Super Bowl XLV. How could any one not think that this sacrilegious ad would not be found disgusting and offensive? Are the people at Doritos that ignorant, or are they just a bunch of non-believers.
Step aside Tim Tebow. The evangelical quarterback’s pro-family ad was last year’s Super Bowl ad dust up. In 2011, the hot spot is an entry in the annual Pepsi-owned Doritos Crash the Super Bowl ad contest that will never air for being over-the-top offensive to people who take Communion seriously. It plays the bread and wine for snack food.
But the body and blood of Christ are no joke to those who believe they are in Communion with their God when they accept the Eucharist and the wine during Mass.
How could anyone sit in a board room, approve this ad and not think that it was offensive?
Feed the Flock begins with a priest (maybe Catholic, maybe Anglican or Episcopal) at his desk surrounded by bills for the parish, which clearly needs more income in the collection plate (why else show the stack of bills?).
Since it’s his job to offer spiritual food to the flock, he takes it to another level (the pits, I’d say). The video shows the faithful lining up for Communion and getting Doritos (in two flavors, no less) instead of the wafer (which Catholics believe is the body of Christ and others see as symbolic of Christ). And, you guessed it, the wine, considered by Catholics to be the blood of Christ, is dished out as Pepsi MAX.
The maker of the ad, a Philadelphia firm called Media Wave Productions and Dave Williams, president of MediaWave, claims that the ad was not intended to offend. Really sir, then you are either a liar or maybe one of the most ignorant individuals ever. As stated at Atlas Shruggs, isn’t it just amazing that the gutless companies like Pepsi do not have the cojones to do such an ad insulting Mohammad or Islam. What’s the matter, you don’t want your headquarters blown up or your exec’s heads to be cut off?
Seriously, I dare you companies to make such a disrespectful ad about Islam. I double dog dare you.
