Drive a Vespa—no social stigma attached

December 12, 2007

Vespa PriestsThis is a great one that goes all the way back to 1965! Three real priests from Glendale, Ohio got around town on their scooters. Says the Vespa ad: “You could hardly call them wild ones. But you could say that they’re wildly practical.” Nobody will get the wrong idea about you, and they certainly will not “scoot up and ask if you want to drag for beers.” In fact, you can drive a Vespa and “maintain your dignity.” Hmmm…Vespa, vespers.

The Xerox brothers 30 years ago

December 6, 2007

Xerox monkIn 1976, Xerox launched a unique and highly successful ad campaign for their duplicators. This “monk” appeared in many of them, and became the “face” of the campaign. These fellas appeared on T-shirts and other promotional items, too. The concept was absolutely inspired. See the full 2-page spread.

No blessing in Italy for Red Bull commercial

December 6, 2007

Cbgrace alerted us to this “brew” haha. It seems that Red Bull drink was advertised in a TV commercial (seen here on YouTube) recently in a high-energy version of the nativity story that introduces a fourth wise man. According to a Reuters story, Father Marco Damanti from Sicily has convinced the company to pull its commercial from Italian television, denouncing the spot as disrespectful and blasphemous.

“The image of the sacred family has been represented in a sacrilegious way,” Father Damanti told Corriere della Sera. “Whatever the ironic intentions of Red Bull, the advert pokes fun at the nativity, and at Christian sensitivity.”

The priest also objected to the company’s slogan, “Red Bull gives you wings,” said by angels in the animated advert.

Take a look, and tell us what you think of it.

Here’s a clever idea for spreading the Gospel

November 29, 2007

Gospel in a CookieI’ve heard that this fortune cookie with a verse from the Bible has been around for quite some time. I just discovered it…or rather a whole bag of them…several months ago. The verses are from both the Old and New Testaments. Not only do restaurants use them, but I’ve heard of individuals who serve them at parties. For a larger version of the cookie and message, click this link.

Broken church sign

This is an interesting twist on the church-sign sermon. You can’t simply drive by the church to catch the abbreviated version of the sermon. If you want the wisdom, you have to come in. I like it.
