SEATTLE — The advertisement inevitably raised some eyebrows.
Heck, it was intended to.
“I wanted you to look at Jesus smoking a blunt, eating a hamburger and say, ‘hey, I’m going to tell my friend,” said John Schmidt.
Schmidt is the owner of Seattle-based Lunchbox Laboratory restaurants and behind a much talked about email-blast.
The ad, emailed out to 13,000 Lunchbox Laboratory deals subscribers, features a picture the Lord and Savior in a not-so-classical pose with a burger in one hand and a marijuana joint in the other. Text springing from Jesus’ mouth reads, “When I Get Back, All I Want is the Burger of the Gods.”Above him is Easter’s date with the number 4.20 highlighted in green.
The advertisement, originally seen by around 1,000 of the 13,000 subscribers, is meant to highlight the sale date for the scrumptious Burger of the Gods.
An advertisement emailed out to all of Lunchbox Laboratory’s deals subscribers is garnering media attention.
