UPDATE, 6:06p: "Casket" made it into the top 3! Just aired. The 2 other top finalists were "Underdog" and "House Rules." Congrats, Mosaic!
8:31a: Tim Tebow's pro-life ad may not be the only one riling secular liberals during today's Super Bowl. We may also see an ad made by Mosaic Church in Pasadena, CA. It'll be for Doritos, and it won't be overtly Christian, but still - yet another sign Christians are daring to engage in pop culture, oh no!
Last autumn Doritos sponsored a Super Bowl ad contest, and by popular vote the Mosaic Church's "Casket" ad is now 1 of 6 finalists.
All 6 have already won $25k. But the top 3 vote getters, which are being kept secret, will air during the game today. And they each have a chance to win $1 million, $600k, or $400k, if ranked the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd most popular Super Bowl ad according to USA Today's Ad Meter.
Many members of Mosaic work in the film industry, and the church entered the Doritos contest to show Christians - shock - can be funny and relevant. Here's "Casket":
And here are the other 5 competing ads. Which are your top 3 favorites? Mine are, in order, "Kids these days," "Casket," and "House Rules."...
"Kids These Days"...
"Snack Attack Samurai"...
It would appear that Tim Tebow is not the only NFLer whose mother decided against abortion.
Indianapolis Colts assistant head coach, Clyde Christensen was also spared abortion when his mother who was a single 15 year old teen chose to give birth to him.
Many 15 year olds abort their babies. Clyde's mother CHOSE not to.
In a direct way, Clyde mentioned the intergenerational effects of abortion - if he were aborted, his 3 daughters would not exist today.

"House Rules" gets my vote.Posted by: ann marie at February 7, 2010 10:04 AM

I vote for the seasoned citizen and the vending machine.
Don't mess with senior citizens.
They are too old to fight fair.
They will just kill you.

"Keep your hands off my mama; keep your hand off my doritos."
Too funny. :)Posted by: Vannah at February 7, 2010 10:47 AM
*now wishes she had bought Doritos at the store*Posted by: LizFromNebraska at February 7, 2010 11:07 AM
Don't really like any of them. Casket is ok. Don't like sassy kids, violence, or cleavage.Posted by: Debbie at February 7, 2010 12:14 PM
I'm with Debbie, and for the same reasons. I'm off to look at the interesting Christensen post! Thanks, angel!Posted by: Cristy S. at February 7, 2010 12:26 PM
Didn't care for "Casket". "Smackout" was my favorite, followed closely by "Snack Samurai". Love violence, don't care about boobies, and I think dating with kids around is just tacky. I'd personally only have my boyfriend around my children after EXTENSIVE research of the guy. I'm talking...like...months. How many kids have been molested by mom's boyfriend?Posted by: xalisae at February 7, 2010 12:49 PM
"Underdog" made me laugh out loud.Posted by: Christina at February 7, 2010 1:46 PM
Doritos is joining Pepsi and Bud Light for commercials that make me want to retch.Posted by: bmmg39 at February 7, 2010 9:38 PM
Google gets my vote for most pro-traditional marriage, pro-family, pro-life Super Bowl ad.
