But... they had Jesus. There were crosses on their caskets, and they got married in a church.

I didn't really care about what it was advertising, it was just advertised in a cool way.

Oh no it is a cute ad. I was just providing the further info mostly for Junkyard's benefit.

Yeah, it's nice to see something a little different when I'm forced to watch 12 or 13 sets of adverts at work.  There's a Pepsi Max advert that I've grown to loathe, which basically implies that if you buy Pepsi Max, you and your friend can have a threesome with Eva Longoria:

What's the deal with commercials like that, that make ABSOLUTELY no sense? I mean, how do they even get the green light for production? Doesn't ANYBODY in the editing department stop and say "What the fuck are we trying to say here?"

I've seen it about 50 times, and yet I still have no idea how it's meant to be advertising Pepsi.  Car adverts are the same.

Eww even more reason not to drink the vile tasting filth.

And what were the subtitles? This has to be for the South Korean or Japanese market surely.

It was the first video I linked from Youtube, but it's exactly the same one that plays in every single screen, on every single film in our cinema.  It's actually marginally better than some of the other Pepsi Max adverts we've had...
