Time to vote:
Faced with declining church attendance and a diminished role in society, the Church of England has turned to an ad agency to give it the "Skoda treatment."
Skoda is a Czech car-maker that had a woeful reputation in the 1980s. Then it was bought by BMW and tried to shake its dodgy image. It has been largely successful, with much credit going to a clever and effective ad campaign. Now the same ad company that represented Skoda is working for the Church of England.
Here are some of the new slogans:
The Church. Provider of judo lessons, antique sales, playgroups, ballet lessons, school discos, flower-arranging
classes, theatre clubs and, oh yes, church.
Why go to India to find yourself? You might be round the corner.
More dances are held in church halls than in dance halls.
So, with Friday being goof off day here at BCC, here are my ideas for LDS ads:
- "Mormons: We survive hurricanes"*
- "Mormons: Serving eternal families since 1830"
- "Mormons: Enjoy your mansion here on Earth" or "Mormons: In our Church are many mansions"
The floor is yours…
