God loses battle of most annoying UK ads of 2009.
(click posters) Britain's priggish Advertising Standards Authority just released their top ten most complained about ads of last year. Number 1: The Christian's Party's "There Definitely Is A God" bus poster, which was a direct response to the British Humanist Association's poster above right—which came in at #6 on the list. The pro-God ad received 1,204 complaints out of a total of 28,978, which was a 9% increase over the previous year's total. The Brits love to nag.
Previously in religious marketing:
• the Pope's cologne.
• "I hate church"—Satan.
• a critique of the Jehovah Witnesses' marketing materials.
• "Obama had one, McCain had two, let me be your crazy reverend!"
