POPE BOBBLEHEAD METRO AD PULLED
according to a story linked at Spirit Daily. Apparently church officials complained.
"Our concern is that this was a bad bobblehead," Susan Gibbs, a spokeswoman for the Archdiocese of Washington, tells the Post. "You had unauthorized merchandise, and you had a misdressed pope."
Target has an ad at the website that seems to be advertising the same bobblehead, though.
The ad can still be found on YouTube, though.
Personally I think the ad is clever, not offensive. But perhaps the real issue here is profits from a copyright.
