The face of Jesus has shown up in some mysterious places, but now it will appear in the frothy remains of a pint of beer as a part of the Churches Advertising Network’s Christmas 2006 ad. You may remember the Churches Advertising Network from such controversial ads as Che Guevara Jesus and What would love do now?. Part of the campaign includes a MySpace site set up for Jesus.
“The message is subtle but simple–where is God in all the boozing at Christmas?” asks Churches Advertising Network Chairman Francis Goodwin. “For many, Christmas is just drinking and partying and God is excluded, yet many young people are interested in finding deeper meaning and exploring faith. We hope the link to Myspace will offer another venue for them to discuss their feelings and debate the issues.”
