Another sacrilegious FARK Photoshop contest.

I never got around to writing about it, but it seems the Catholic Church in Lithuania got all bent out of shape over a beer ad by the folks at Kalnapilio-Tauro Grupe that used an image of Jesus with a pair of headphones on to promote a contest where you could win some free music:

“Many believers are hurt and outraged that the Saviour’s image… was used for advertising beer,” said Archbishop Sigitas Tamkevicius in a statement.

“The use of Catholic symbols for commercial purposes and especially for advertising alcoholic beverages is absolutely unjustifiable,” added Tamkevicius, who is chairman of the Lithuanian bishops’ conference.

Yeah, yeah, boo-fucking-hoo. Anyway, today the folks over at FARK.com decided to hold a Photoshop contest of other ads that shouldn’t have Jesus in them. This is one of my favorites:

And it’s not half as bad as the Coca-Cola/Elton John ad, which, if you laugh at it, is probably a first class ticket to hell all by itself. Needless to say, I laughed my ass off at it.

  1. I was sipping from a mug of Darjeeling when I viewed the “Viagra” ad shown on screen, and I literally spewed a mouthful of tea all over my monitor. John was in the other room and heard me howling, so he came in and took a look. His reaction was similar to mine (although, fortunately for the monitor, he had nothing in his mouth at the time). Fark is just beautiful. LOL

  2. Oh. My. See you guys you-know-where.

    It’s so hard to pick a favorite, especially when you don’t know which circle of hell you’ll end up in.  I thought the NRA plug and the inriPod were cute, but of course the Viagra ad was stiff competition.

  3. The Geico one was amazing, particularly if you compulsively read Jack Chick comics as much as I do. Oh, suuuuuure you don’t.
