I really like these promotional ads for McCann-Erickson. Very nice work.
hahah, i love that jesus one
these are great.
Hard to believe this is real. I am wondering how long it will take until McCann-Erickson will have to apologize for the Jesus ad. I don’t think such controversial ads are too good for business, but Benetton would probably disagree.
I’m don’t know.
Some ads require a temporary suspension of reality. Fantasy I guess, like Disney. Fiction’s ok because it attracts, entertains and you leave with a smile.
And these promos for McCann are cute.
But, is that really the strategy? We are fake, but we are cute.
Nice joke. That’s it. I guess anything goes these days.
Erm…a little overstating the claim isnt it, McCannE?!
Good to see they’re accurate, too. A bunch of young white guys dressed in the standard ad-man uniform trying to convince the authentic article that the 20 minutes of thinking they did on the train trumps the clients’ years of experience with their customers.
These people would have told Buddah to make a diet, i guess…
These seem kinda cornball, but I think they are just trying to portray themselves as fun-to-work-with. I mean, come on. They are taking credit for Jesus’ scarifice AND Cuban Cigars?
Todd – Sounds like you had a bad experience!
I think it’s funny that the ad guys are pointing to the cross, but Jesus likes the whole circle unity thing better. hey, who wants to be crucified anyway?
I heard Elvis wanted to go with a mustache until fate intervened and left one empty stool next to a McCann exec at the local diner.
Also, it was “You ain’t nothin’ but a beagle”, but that one might just be a rumor.
Castro gave up cigars, so that one does not work anymore, I think Churchill would have a better choice, he does have a cigar named after him
Just want to point out that this is an ad by McCann Belgium 🙂
I think they are great!
Talk about stealing Royalty, This image of the Cross was paid for by Jesus Christâ€™s Blood. Pretty Stupid. This WILL cost them.

It would be nice to say this was a good idea but generations of admen have rejected the use of personal icons who represent any kind of faith. Jesus was a good man maybe but he is the personal property of millions. It is so easy to be cute…but I prefer clever or impressive concepts…that’s why I buy Apple products…there is brilliance and thought and hardwork in evidence in their products and their spiel…and yes they are mega useful too!
Great job 🙂 I really love it!
There is a trend today used by advertisers in order to gain attention and to shock the public. They use as target young people as they are receptive to this kind of commercial.
I am interested to find out more about this campaign as I am working at my Bachelor degree project on Jesus Brand.
In my opinion Jesus shouldn’t be used for commercial purposes. Advertising is denigrating His image and you can watch the campaigns that did : Sagatiba (Saatchi & Saatchi, UK), Paddy Power (Irland) , Pony or Sony Playstation (Italy). Jesus has lost his sacred image.
What do u think?
Everyone put Jesus on the Cross. They’re admitting to it. Are we? =D
I have a televised broadcast proposal script for McCann Erickson catered to Verizon Wireless.
Whats it supposed to mean?
Someone there is hip to the Urantia book. Very clever use of the concentric circles image used by Macheventa Melchezideck.
