Controversial new spot set to ruffle religious feathers

By AdNews | 17 October 2012

New Zealand pub Chapel Bar and Bistro has unleashed a sacrilegious new print ad that could be the subject of much controversy.

Created by Ogilvy Auckland, the ad aims to celebrate the pub's 7th Birthday and shows a couple passed out on a bed in the positions of Jesus and The Virgin Mary. It carries the tagline '7 Years of Almighty Nights'.
