New Red Bull commercial debunks Jesus, pisses off Christians.

Oh, Jesus.
Via South Africa: On Monday Red Bull began running the blasphemous spot during prime time and, predictably, the complaints immediately came flooding in like it was the end of the world. A "staff member" at Red Bull SA says the spot has already been pulled.
The energy drink company of course knew what they were doing, and knew how much free press the spot would generate. (The spot is also running in Brazil. No word on if it has been pulled there.) If they want some real press, they should run it in Mississippi.
Previously, Red Bull laser-tagged the MI6 building in London.

OK! it's via South Africa, BUT the hoity-toity British accents are too distracting.

Should have gone with Aramaic and subtitles, giving it significant gravitas, less impiety.

WTF?!? This ad doesn't offend me as a Christian, it offends me as a copywriter and commedian.

This is based on an old joke. The joke is so bad/old/hack, it actually starts with "A priest, a minister and a rabbi are in a boat..."

This is such a piece of shit, I would fire the creative director that allowed it to be presented to the client in the first place.

GOD! What the fuck has happened to orginiality?!?

And don't anyone dare give me that "there are no original ideas left" line of crap.

If you can't come up with original ideas, you just aren't trying hard enough.
