Hyundai Pulls Repugnant Commercial


Hyundai pulled a 30-second commercial after audiences pointed out the spot demeaned symbols, actions, and events that Catholics hold dear.

The ad begins with singing in Latin, then depicts an Argentine “church” with a stained glass window of a soccer ball; later there's a soccer ball sporting a crown of thorns. Worshippers are depicted kneeling and sacramentally receiving pizza.

Hyundai said it had not anticipated the numerous objections that its insulting ad would produce.

Deo gratias! I sent an email to this company protesting this blasphemy, and I'm certain that many others did likewise. It's good to know that our voices were heard. Thank you for posting this, and I'll see you in Winona, God willing.

I'm happy to hear they pulled it and especially since it attacked the Latin Mass. I do know that soccer is like a religion to a great many people and especially to my fallen away catholic sister and her family.
