Where do Santa and Jesus cross paths?

Bobbleheadjesus_2This campaign takes a fascinating approach to the old problem of getting people to come to church. It’s a series of print ads for the United Church of Canada that humorously touch on many of the vexing questions about contemporary faith. This ad shows a Jesus bobblehead doll, with checkmark boxes “Funny” or “Ticket to Hell.” Copy at the bottom (too small for even the eagle-eyed AdFreak reader to decipher) reads, “What do you think? Let us know at www.wondercafe.ca, the home of lively discussion on spiritual topics, moral issues and life’s big questions.” Really, all of the executions, which you can see here (the link is most of the way down the page on the left), are worth checking out. One shows Jesus playing Santa at the mall, and another shows cans of whipped cream and chocolate sauce and asks , “How much fun can sex be before it’s a sin?”
