Red Bull is getting in the Christmas spirit this season with their latest advertisement. While I find it quite entertaining, many Christians don’t. One Italian priest, Father Marco Damanti, went so far as to call it blasphemous and disrespectful to Christianity. He was so furious that he actually got the company to remove the ad entirely from Italian television!

By now you’re wondering what all the fuss is about. The commercial recreates the nativity scene and throws in a little twist by adding a fourth wise man carrying Red Bull. At the end of the commercial, angels fly above and say the company’s slogan, “Red Bull gives you wings.” Good stuff if I do say so myself.

Hats off to sidfaiwu for the story!
