The Super Bowl Commercial That Wasn't

A group called "Fixed Point Foundation" raised enough money to produce a commercial for the Super Bowl last Sunday. Unfortunately, in our politically correct society it was rejected by the network and you didn't get to view it on television. Too bad because the commercial is outstanding. Here is the gist of it:

A group of friends are sitting in a living room eating, drinking beer and watching the big game. They all go nuts with hysteria when the opposing quarterback gets sacked. But as the television camera zooms in on the face under the helmet of the downed QB, they see the "John 3:16" that is written in white letters on the black make-up worn under the quarterback's eyes. They ask each other what "John 3:16" means. One of them goes to look it up on his smartphone. The short 31 second commercial then ends at this point with these words...LOOKUP316.COM - A MESSAGE OF HOPE.

Now that would have been a great Super Bowl commercial. And in case you are tuning in to this blog and are not sure yourself what JOHN 3:16 means - here it is, straight from the Bible:

"For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life!"
