Controversial Super Bowl ad by Doritos and Pepsi MAX
Feed the Flock is an entry in the Doritos and Pepsi MAX Crash the Super Bowl is creating an uproar. The ad shows a desperate priest trying to get his flock back. He asks for help from God and Pepsico answers his prayers. Is it offending? Yes, for some. Is it effective? Yes, it went viral.
As you must have heard from me several times in the last year or so, religion is the next taboo that advertising will break down since sex and politics have been exhausted. Remember the the blasphemous posters from New Zealand? Religion is an easy subject to make fun of and many brands will take a stab at it.
