Introducing… The McPassion!

My friend Rik Swartzwelder, director of the award-winning short film “The Least of These,” wrote and co-produced this marketing parody of the commercialization of The Passion of the Christ.

And… yikes, it stings like a cat o’nine tails!

Watch… The McPassion!!*
(Caution: Some may find it irreverent. But I’d argue that the film isn’t making fun of Christ. It’s making fun of just how tactless and clueless many modern marketing endeavors can be.)

And prepare for The Second Helping!!

Before you send off an angry letter to the filmmakers, read Mark Moring’s interview with Swartzwelder at Christianity Today Movies.

    The link is wrong – although you can work out what it should be. Quite funny, although nothing really went as far as that Passion nail on a chain that was for real.

    I have to admit, it was a bizarre little short. I liked it, but it could have been paced a little quicker on a few of the jokes.
