Apparently Doritos/Pepsi are having an ad contest for consumers favorite super bowl ad. As super bowl ads go, they are usually hilarious and highly anticipated. In fact, one of the ads that made the cut for the contest, depict a very sexy Eve eating the forbidden fruit in the garden, and Adam -the not-quite-as-sexy guy who probably didn't even noticed that Eve was naked, decides that "he's good" with a bag of Doritos.
But the one ad that won't air (which is posted in the link above), takes place in a Catholic church, where it shows a Catholic priest and his understudy swamped in a pile of bills, with low Sunday morning turnout. After (supposedly) praying really hard, The Catholic priest asks God for a "sign" followed by the sound of a crunching chip and the "snap and pour" of a soda. The Catholic priest decides to offer chips and coke in place of the wafers and wine served at Communion, and advertises it as "free Doritos and Pepsi Max every Sunday" in order to increase their numbers (which inevitably happens with people asking for the "cool ranch" instead of the "nacho cheese.") At the end the Catholic priest appears to have a life time supply of Doritos and Pepsi, and while he's chugging down the soda, the camera pans down to the pile of bills that are now paid, as if his "ploy" was a success.
Catholics everywhere are apparently outraged (since they believe that wine and bread are actually the body and blood of Christ) and so the comercial was pulled before it even aired.
What are your thoughts? Is this offensive, or in fun?Answer Question
