Banned Adam and Eve Commercial
Examiner.com ^ | Dec. 30, 2009 | Réne Girard

Posted on 12/30/2009 10:31:12 AM PST by RGirard

Why would anyone want to ban a commercial featuring Adam and Eve? In this case, some people just couldn't take a joke.

Centraal Beheer is an insurance company from The Netherlands which has run a series of very successful commercials where something goes unexpectedly, sometimes horribly, wrong in the end ...

The request from the insurance company is "just call us." In other words: they are there for you in good times and bad, to help you with life's unexpected tragedies.

Although some commercials have received praise as well as prestigious awards, others have been banned from the airwaves. One of those was a Bill Clinton commerical, and another one featured Adam and Eve from the Bible's creation story. As if eating the forbidden fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil was not tragic enough, the advertising team created another unexpected fate.

Should this commerical have been pulled from circulation?

Seriously, I just spewed some Reeses all over the screen, lol!!! No way should it have been banned. It was probably gays who didn’t have a sense of humor.

Well, now we know why Eve ate a fruit from the tree of the knowledge and gave Adam the fruit to eat as well.

This evangelical Christian thought it was rather funny. I see no need to pull the ad.

Actually, I would think it would be gay groups that were irritated ... we wouldn’t want people thinking homosexuality indicates that something went wrong.

I like this one. The Adam and Eve one didn’t do anything for me.

> Where did Adam and Eve get belly buttons??

My best guess is that God gave 'em to 'em. Original design and all that...

That's where God blew the breath of life and inflated them. ;-)
