Super Bowl LIV Will Feature Drag Queens Ad For First Time Ever
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” -Isaiah 5:20,21
I have been out of sports for decades. I used to play basketball, football, baseball and run track in school, but those things, while they can be used to glorify God, are not the pursuit of either my life or my happiness. Yet, for many, sports is an idol that they worship at every chance they get. They can tell you more about their favorite sport team than they can list the Ten Commandments, the twelve apostles, or like President Donald Trump actually cite an actual Bible verse and its reference. Yet, many will forsake the assembling of themselves with the people of God in order to watch the Super Bowl only to find that there will be a first ever ad with drag queens featured in it.
NBC News has the story:
Drag queens, for the first time, will appear in a Super Bowl advertisement. “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alumni Kim Chi and Miz Cracker will make history in a commercial for hummus brand Sabra during the football championship game Feb. 2, when the Kansas City Chiefs will face the San Francisco 49ers.
In the teaser for the ad campaign, which the New York-based company posted on its YouTube channel last week, Miz Cracker clumsily attempts to put a football helmet on over her sizable wig.
“I hope this doesn’t give me helmet hair,” she says, while Kim Chi looks on skeptically.
The Sabra campaign will also feature rapper T-Pain and another reality television duo: former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” rivals Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice, according to AdWeek.
Bob Witeck, a longtime marketing strategist who specializes in reaching LGBTQ audiences, called Sabra’s drag ad “revolutionary.”
“For queer audiences, it is an art form and an ‘outsiders’ language,” Witek said of drag. “Reaching the Super Bowl means taking our language into every home in the nation and millions around the world.”
Witeck said the Sabra ad, which could reach around 100 million viewers during the Super Bowl, is indicative of a sea change in the public perception of drag, which he said has been normalized in the mainstream for many years, thanks in large part to the success of the award-winning reality show “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”
“The Super Bowl is the ultimate test, when you can take chances like this and realize that the fear of drag is nothing people imagined it to be,” he said. “It’s us telling our own joke about ourselves, with a sense of humor and authenticity … with luck, everyone laughs with us.”
That’s not all.
In addition to men dressing like women, which God calls an “abomination” (Deuteronomy 22:5), you can expect to also witness the Super Bowl’s first female and openly gay coach: Katie Sowers of the 49ers.
That’s not surprising considering it is San Francisco.
If you can even stomach it, here’s the ad.
And yet, “men” in the united States will tolerate this. Oh I know, you guys will spew your venom, but you won’t lift a finger to actually stop the crimes of these people in our country. Really, it’s more important what you do than what you say (James 2)… and many men reading this will call themselves Christians..
I suggest you stop being entertained by men wearing tights and fighting over a ball wrapped in pigskin and start actually doing something to fight against the tyranny that is out not only for your liberty, but the freedom of your children.
I have just one question as to where you stand knowing this: Are you still going to tune in? Or will you be one of those who justify your support of the Super Bowl even though they are promoting what God condemns?
You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. -James 4:4
