My Life in Zion

The life and views of a Latter-day Saint in the 21st Century…

Epically Funny “I’m a Mormon” Ad

If you’ve ever watched any of the “I’m a Mormon” advertisements you’ve probably noticed that the Church is trying to make us Mormons come off like we’re super hip and cool (which we are), but what I love the most is that the folks over at the Mormon Channel have now shown they have a stellar sense of humor.

Meet Barry, your typical Mormon Channel Surfer…

Great lunch with Jason today, #salad”

Every time I watch it I laugh hysterically. And I also love that Johnny Lingo makes an appearance on Barry too.

A few months ago my good friend Gabe, who lives in Austin, Texas, wrote on my Facebook wall that he wanted to see me in a Mormon commercial. Austin is one of the major U.S. cities that has been swarmed with the Church’s marketing “I’m a Mormon” Campaign. I’m not sure how one gets on a Mormon commercial, but seeing that Barry has done it, I am guessing that even I have a chance. My only other competition is this other Mormon fella named Stan who seems to be taking away my Stan the Mormon glory. He seems like a pretty neat guy and all, but I think there’s room for two Stan the Mormons in the world.

What do you think?…

I’m just kidding of course, us Mormons really have no idea how to be a curious yak.
