Happy Hour Vid: Is Doritos Mocking Christians?

Tue Jan 4, 5:58 pm ET
Doritios and Diet Pepsi think Jesus is a joke!

WASHINGTON, DC – Produced for the Super Bowl, Doritos debuted a fan-created TV ad featuring a pastor who gets parishioners to go to church by handing out nacho cheese flavored chips as communion bread (as opposed to the the traditional thin wafers) and Pepsi as wine. The ad apparently has raised some eyebrows, Fox reporting it as "Controversial Dorito Ad Accused of Mocking Catholics" (though it's not immediately apparent that the ad is mocking Catholics rather than Christians in general*) and Fox News' Megyn Kelly wonders if "they crossed the line" with the spot. Fox Panelist Lars Larson, a radio host, certainly seems to think so. "You would not do this to Muslims," he declared, before later saying this:
I have a friend, Rebecca, who drinks diet Pepsi all day long and the fact is, is that she doesn't believe that diet Pepsi is Jesus' blood, and to mock this communion service by saying were going to turn the body, the flesh of Jesus Christ into Doritos, I think it's offensive and I don't think it should be done. God obviously has a sense of humor--he gave us the Democrat party.
* The clergyman at the beginning is referred to as a "pastor," more common among Protestants, who certainly also take Communion

Frito-Lay won't pull controversial Christian parody Doritos commercial

Washington Examiner

In what may be another ad campaign gone awry, Doritos is featuring a new Super Bowl advertisement in which a priest, searching for ways to return to the church, has a supposedly brilliant idea: Replacing the host wafer with a Dorito. While the denomination of the church is unclear, what is clear is that most Christian denominations consider the host to be a big portion of communion and might find the commercial, titled "Feed your flock!", insensitive. A spokesman for Frito-Lay told The Examiner that the commercial had been approved and would not be taken down from the website. This contradicts Frito-Lay's own contest rules, which state that submissions "may not be obscene or indecent, including but not limited to nudity or profanity," and especially that it "must not contain defamatory statements (including but not limited to words or symbols that are widely considered offensive to individuals of a certain race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or socioeconomic group.)" But in this commercial, on the other hand, one congregant asks for his communion in the form of a Cool Ranch flavored Dorito. (And behind him, inexplicably, is a man in a toga with a flower in his ear, while there are people dressed as Amish in a neighboring line.)

From the: Friendly Atheist

Update***: The ad has been pulled from the contest.
…Doritos and Pepsi are holding a contest where people can submit their own commercial — the highest vote-getters will see their commercial air during the Super Bowl. Absurd, funny, amusing… and Catholics — not even ones named Bill Donohue — are already opposing it:
Because we’re all going to start thinking Jesus had Pepsi flowing through his veins…Actually, they should be happy. It’s a commercial about the Catholic Church that didn’t even make a passing reference to child-rape. That’s a step up for them, right? (Update: commenters have pointed out this isn’t necessarily a Catholic church; it could be Protestant. Note the use of the word “Pastor” instead of “Father,” the wedding ring on the pastor’s finger, and the lack of paintings and statues.) So starting tomorrow, you have to go vote for it. It’s too entertaining not to air on TV. By the way, anyone else notice the priest was wearing a wedding ring…?
Opposing view: The video is borderline (if not completely) blasphemous and Catholic Christians everywhere should write to Pepsi to prevent this ad from getting on to the air. The video should not air because it exploits Christ, mocks His Church and His community in the Church, and it will perpetuate harmful misunderstandings of Christian belief.


Doritos and Diet Pepsi have set themselves up as the "communion" of the LORD and called for the substitution of the traditional wafer and wine (grape juice, in most churches) but the difference of the wafer and wine is prayed over by the Minister as in recognition of the blood of Christ and the body of Christ, it is therefore recognized also by the Doritos and Diet Pepsi company that they be counted as the substitution in the drinking and eating of the marketable product. Since they, the company of such products, have made the proclamation of their product as the "likeness" or substitution, or resemblence thereof, as the "real" tradition, then the same judgment is meet upon all those whom partake in such honor, for they are held accountable, not by man, but by God Himself, as they that count the death of Christ and His resurrection as an "unworthy" thing, a thing to be mocked and deplored, the judgment then resides upon them and those that partake as such. Since the Doritos and Diet Pepsi company have chosen this method of a way to increase their monetary means, they also have let loose upon society, imitators who shall now increase by means of ignorance, this also shall be to the charge and the judgment of Doritos and the Diet Pepsi company, they shall find their 'forgiveness and mockery' among the populace of men/women, but they shall be found and held guilty by the Father of Jesus Christ, who gave His Son in death for their sins, their blood shall be upon their own heads and those whom partake. In their eating and drinking, as they eat and drink unworthily, they eat and drink damnation to their souls and all who partake in such ritulistic fashion, it is a most dangerous and fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God, even the heathen would not do this, as they still fear God, but this is a generation who fear not God as spoken by Christ, and the children who fear not God, is the judgment to come.

For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you. When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper. For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken. What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not. For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord's death till he come. Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another. And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come. - 1 Corinthians 11:19-34

The 1st amendment trumps all this garbage talk about "being offended." If you want to live in a closed and censured society move to Saudi Arabia.


Thou shalt make no law to the effect of religious view one way or the other, try it again but this time use the Muslim words in your ad, it is called death to the infidels and your constitution matters not, born yesterday were ye.? Arabs shall have thy neck me bordello friend, for whom the guillotine swings, irregardless of secular view, it is only as good as long as you have your country, and guess what, when the Christians leave, hold that view for as long as you will be allowed, pony boys always die in the end screaming, "But I have me rights". If you can have no respect for all religious views how long do you think the Muslims will tolerate you, you do realize that Europe is becoming Muslim and so too shall the USA, it is called the, "Judgment of God" as He will visit you in your arrogance and ignorance, for it is by a foolish nation that God judges the foolish. Deny today and scream all you can, but tomorrow will find you weeping at the edge of the blade, but for now laugh and mock on, eat the Dorito and drink the Diet Pepsi of your desire, it is fitting to stuff the turkey before putting it into the furnace of Tribulation. If you got them light 'em!

I am a Roman Catholic, and I am very much offended.

I am a Christian and God is offended very much. Mr. Bob Ross, if that really is your name, and I seriously doubt it, it is for you the guillotine will swing, now go chugalug that Diet Pepsi and eatemup them Doritos, after all you have no fear of God or man, so spit on the floor, and eat and drink up, for tomorrow as the script states, "ye die" but what is death to a man who has no fear of God or man. The Arab is a man who holds a guillotine for the neck of all who do not bow to their god, and they like you fear not God or man but then again hell is filled with such people who mocked God, but what do you care!

I can't believe they are mocking someone that believes, 3 men built a 600 ft. boat with no trees. and no power tools, and thousands of people wondered around the desert for 40 years with no food and a man parted the sea, and the world is 6,000 years old. Those people?


If I were a betting person, and I am not, I would think you to be eating the Dorito and drinking the popular chugalug, Diet Pepsi, for you do not have any fear of God or man as you are brave and strong, and a great thinker among your peers. Ah, but then there is that little bity problem called the Arab and he chooses to adopt the belief called Muslim and he has a Ronco guillotine sharpner and he is making his blade sharp and checking it twice, for somewhere inside he knows, that is by a foolish people with no fear of God that shall bring judgment to a foolish nation that has a Bible at their disposal, who also has no fear of God or man. The problem? The Muslim states you are an infidel and it is for you that the guillotine swings, now go chugalug and eatemup for you fear not God or man!

Nobama: Perhaps you are thinking of Timothy McVey, the Muslim who set off the bomb in OK City or perhaps you are thinking of Eric Rudolph who set off the bomb at the Atlanta Olympics or wait, they were Christians weren't they? Christians think they are being mocked anytime they aren't being allowed to run the show and take all our money.
Anyone can claim they are a Christian, just like anyone can claim to be a Muslim, which I think you might be very good at.

T Welcome to the world of right-wing political correctness.

It's so funny how the militant right has become everything it said it stood against

Tolerance is a switch found at the bottom of the guillotine, only not so funny when it is your neck, now laugh outloud, and let the entire neighborhood hear you cackle, like a chichen whose coming home to America.
