This commercial is doing the rounds of social media. I find it hard to believe that they actually had the balls to televise it anywhere, but it gave me a laugh.
Big Lamb (I know technically that’s a sheep, but work with me here) is definitely pushing the envelope on this one. I think I already made a post about another commercial they made which got complaints … yes. Yes I did. But this one is even better.
Okay, so yeah, it’s insensitive to the “vegan religions”, or rather “the people of some cultures who are vegan, and form a majority of that culture and also strongly overlap the religious demographic” … okay, “vegan religion” is easier. But how much is Big Lamb supposed to really care about vegans? I don’t care about vegans, and I work in a non-meat-production-dependent industry.
There’s a lot to enjoy there, from the inclusion of Scientology and Atheism and other wacky philosophies, to Islam not making an appearance for reasons that first seem like sensitivity but then make you think “hang on, Muhammad is on daycare pickup duty? Does that mean what I think it means?”
And basically all the Gods are adorable.
I don’t know, I think the sheer number of people this is going to enrage just goes to show how many sensitive twits we have on this planet. But I think it’s hilarious.
