New Red Bull Commercial Pisses Off Christians

Red Bull South Africa earlier this week unveiled the latest addition to its ongoing “Red Bull gives you wiings” campaign — a 30 seconds spot featuring a “bored” Jesus walking on water, saying, “It’s not a miracle, you just need to know where the stepping stones are.”

The controversal commercial aired on Monday night during e.tv’s 7pm news and during Grey’s Anatomy on M-Net, has prompted more than 100 complaints in less than a day, which resulted in it being pulled from the air.

The energy drink company of course knew what they were doing, and knew how much free press the spot would generate. Negative press is better than no press after all.

Apparently, the same commercial is also running in Brazil. No word on if it has been pulled there.
