Good old redbull selling its cola product and its savy marketing, but why this

The first question is how does belittling Jesus sell cola?
Then I wonder if other Christians find it as offensive as I do, and do any atheists or agnostics see it as offensive.
It is on TV in Australia and was pulled off of tv in South Africa.


What is it with these energy drinks and their anti- christian agenda. 666 is the brand on the Monster cola can.

As of right now id consider myself an agnostic.

I can see why some christians would find this offensive though.

I dont really agree with your wording of "mock" though, in my opinon they are just using this example as a marketing campaign.

Cheers

Eh who cares?

More people being offended about things. It offends me that the OP is offended. Christianity should be mocked, the entire Bible is a mockery in itself.

Also what do you mean about Monster and 666? Somehow I doubt they brand their friggin cans with the mark of the beast....at least they don't here in the US.

I agree. It's a joke. God would want you to laugh and be happy.

Should we have been offended because of the Geico cavemen? What's the difference? Both historical figures that had an impact on the development of our civilization...

I do not see myself as a Christian, as there are many good people whom are Christian, many others are backstabbers and do no different than what i will call "evil". I don't belong to a group. I have my own relationship with The Divine.

I am a believer of The Divine Trinity, and yes, Red Bull has been mocking my Creator a long time.

Christians who are blind to history and historical context and feel offended regarding their beliefs being mocked should go die in a fire(not literally obviously). Just like they used to burn people alive for not believing in the Christian doctrine. Grow the hell up.

Yeah? What if that were Mohammed?

What kind of offense do you think THAT ad campaign would generate?


Christians are very tolerant, my friend. And no, the video did not offend me.

No, I find religion for the most part offensive though.

I always wondered what kind of God wants people running around pissed off all the time, seems like all of them sometimes.



Maybe people are praying to the wrong ones...

The poster has a point.


On 1 January 2010, Danish police shot and wounded a man at the home of Kurt Westergaard in Aarhus. Westergaard drew the best known of the cartoons, which depicted the prophet Muhammad with a bomb in his turban. The man was described as a 28-year-old Somali linked to the Islamist al-Shabab militia. He reportedly shouted in broken English that he wanted to kill Westergaard, who alerted police after locking himself into a panic room in the house, which was a specially fortified bathroom.[109][110] Police said that the man was "armed with an axe and a knife in either hand", and broke down the entrance door of the house with the axe.

Say what? Anti Muslim? Are you on crack?

Dude, mentioning Mohammed does not make one anti-muslim inasmuch as mentioning Jesus makes one anti-Christian. I was contrasting the two religions and how each would be offended by that cartoon in the context of each. It really is sad that I have to explain this to you, seriously. You obviously did not understand the very simple point I was trying to make.

Tattling? I don't even know what that is supposed to mean.

In South Africa we have had Red Bull ads on tv over the last few with their plain mockery. I can't talk for other countries.

Source


Red Bull has had a stream of complaints about its ads, especially its Biblical series which has featured Joseph, Mary and Moses. Two years ago an ad featuring Moses sparked outrage. Instead of parting the Red Sea to cross with the Israelites, Moses and the group fly over it after “drinking” a can of Red Bull.


They have done commercials over the years that to me is blasphemy. Google their ads. Red Bull Moses, Red Bull Mary & Joseph.
