Apparently, some Brazilian creatives like their ads the way they like their burgers: half-cooked and tasteless.
Or, as copyranter rails:
That’s a hell of an unpaid, unauthorized product endorsement. Wall poster inside Rio de Janeiro international airport for Bob’s, a Brazilian burger chain apparently not associated with our idolized Big Boy. Literal headline translation: “Bob’s. Brazilian as you like.” On the plus side: at least they used an illustration and not a photo of the city’s iconic Christ the Redeemer statue. On the negative side: well, damnation for us all. Also note, the illustrator turned Jesus’s hand so’s he could hold the blasphemous burger, a burger that the blog “i’m not sayin, i’m just sayin” says is less than divine-tasting.
Hell of a casting coup indeed. But I fear that aside from 30 silver pieces, there'd also be hell to pay.
On the positive side, I'd like to imagine that, in lieu of thunderbolts, maybe Christ O Redentor is just about to hurl that giant burger at the agency guys who took His endorsement in vain.
All I know is that if we ever tried that here, we'd be crucified sooner than you can say Deus Ex-Burger Machina.
Considering how Judeo-Christian deities react to Golden Calves, should I stop feasting on the offerings of the Golden Arches? Am I playing beef patty-cake with the heavenly hosts for gustatory sins of the flesh ?
Maybe I should find some soul food to go.
Let there be tuna, and let it be light!
