Monster Truck Church Commercial
Status: Not an official ad
An amusing monster-truck-style radio commercial
for St. Andrew's Episcopal Church
in Birmingham is doing the rounds. "This Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! It's a sacramental showdown at St. Andrew's Episcopal..."
It's not a real ad, in the sense that it's never been aired. Nor was it created by the church. As Church Marketing Sucks
reports, it was created by Mike McKenzie, who's a St. Andrew's parishioner:
"It wasn't with the intention of making a commercial--I was just goofying around," says McKenzie. "The idea hit me right after 10:30 mass--it's high mass, very formal liturgy. What would happen if you took formal liturgy and combined it with a monster truck rally?"
McKenzie then shared his creation with the church leaders, and from there it started doing the rounds. But it sounds like St. Andrews likes the ad, and may actually use it sometime in the future. At which point it would become a real ad. (via Julie's News from New York
