UNREAL, Ad Displaying Doritos Used as Eucharist Pulled from Super Bowl


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.

More from the Blogprof… of course it mocked Catholicism. I guess its a given that Doritos will no longer be a staple snack for Catholics.

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.

      I’m Catholic and I don’t think it’s something to be offended by, there is plenty of harmless humor like this that is in our culture. Isn’t that a virtue, to be able to laugh at yourselves? Really, it’s just light humor for a chips and soft drink ad, it’s not something to take too seriously.

      I think you’re right that no ad company would dare to make fun of Islam, but isn’t that what makes Christianity great today, that we are tolerant of things like this. I would not want to live in a world where people can’t make jokes about us because we threaten or berate them. That’s why even if this ad is poking fun at my religion, I support it. If muslims were as tolerant, then we could have commercials poking fun at their religion too, and then people would take things so seriously and the world might be a better place.
      SM: I seriously disagree. Making fun of a religion is hardly belittling it at going to the heart of it and the Host.

      I guess it would be ok if the Host was a Twinkie, a Snowball or a Devil Dog? Hmm?

      Yea, the cowards at Doritos would never do an ad making fun of Islam. I think they like their heads too much.

      I think this would so much not bother me except for the impact it would make to young christians. Just as media overflow has desensitized us to many things that were not the norm before. It makes it so much easier to take communion out of it’s sacred context when it is taken out of it’s sacred context. Same with sex and drugs and murder ect..
