Protestants have been on the marketing bandwagon for a long time, but our Catholic friends have not embrace it until recently. This video is from Father Vic on the behalf of the Roman Catholic churches of Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island. This was part of a “confessional campaign” to drive people to confession before Easter. The video was featured on their campaign microsite www.soulwow.com. Yes, this is for real.
I’m going to give them props for trying something new and funny. It got me to watch all the way through and it made me smile. And that’s a feat considering I don’t usually make through most church videos no matter how short they are.
What’s your take on Father Vic and his “ShamWow” parochial parish parody? (sorry, but I could not resist.)
