Holy High: Jesus Smokes a Joint in Seattle Burger Restaurant Ad

Easter Sunday happens to fall on 4/20 this year, so a burger joint in Seattle, Washington decided to market towards both the holiest and highest of its customers.

Lunchbox Laboratory sent out an ad for a two-for-one burger deal featuring an image of Jesus enjoying both a burger and a joint with the following caption:

“When I Get Back, All I Want is the Burger of the Gods.”

The restaurant’s owner, John Schmidt, spoke to KIRO radio host Dori Monson saying, “No one group is sacred” and the goal of the ad was to get people talking.

Mission accomplished, Mr. Schmidt.

We expect more marijuana enthusiasts and advertisers to cash in on the High Holiday this Sunday.
