Red Bull Pulls Controversial ‘Bored Jesus Goes Fishing and Hops Around’ Campaign

It’s not quite Easter yet, but Jesus has risen — and made an appearance in a really silly South Africa Red Bull commercial. In the ad, JC goes on a “boring” fishing trip with his bros and starts hopping around on the water. How’s he doing this? Miracles? RED BULL? Oh no, shenanigans! He knows where the stepping stones are.

Naturally, Christians hated it. Boating enthusiasts and fishermen also hated it, because obviously the boat couldn’t float if there were flat rocks on the surface of the water, and they like to think of Jesus as a decent angler.
