LA megachurch hopes to win Super Bowl ad contest

Pastors have long competed with the NFL on Sundays, but this season a hipster megachurch is turning the tables with a 30-second ad that could muscle its way into that all holiest of sporting events: the Super Bowl.

Mosaic, a 3,000-member megachurch, is one of six finalists in the Doritos' "Crash the Super Bowl" challenge with a lighthearted spoof that plays off the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

If the church's ad, titled "Casket," is among the top three vote-getters in an online playoff, it will air on Feb. 7 during the Super Bowl. If the commercial ranks in the top three most-popular ads among viewers, it could win its creators either $400,000, $600,000 or $1 million.

For Erwin McManus, Mosaic's lead pastor, the ad competition represents a chance to make his faith relevant to one of the largest TV audiences in the nation when viewers least expect it _ and are least likely to tune out.

To that end, the congregation worked hard to make the 30-second spot look as slick as a professional ad and were careful to stick to the quirky, slapstick-style humor that's expected by Super Bowl fans.

"We're not trying to use Doritos to propagate a message, but I think we want people to know that we have a sense of humor, that it's OK to laugh," McManus said. "So much of what comes out of the faith community seems so dour and somber and we want to say, 'Hey, we're real people. You can be a person of faith and really enjoy life and laugh." Leia +.

estar entre os finalistas já proporcionou à Mosaic uma visibilidade que dificilmente seria alcançada pelos meios tradicionais. hiperlegal ver uma comu sintonizada c/ nossos dias e aproveitando as oportunidades de forma hábil e bem-humorada.

Bem legal ver que existem cristãos que não são chatos sem senso de humor e que fazem coisas de qualidade assim =]

Não dá pra ser luz no mundo e sal da terra sendo chatos! \A vida cristã é uma festa! Ou pelo menos deveria ser.
Parabéns pelos post.

markeetoo, Valdir, como vocês sabem, a igreja de McManus teve um gasto muito grande com o comercial. Vocês estariam dispostos a doar R$ 5,00 para ajudá-la a cobrir os altos custos? Eu posso ajudar a enviar a oferta.

um abraço,
K-fé
