And the first Golden Turkey Award goes to …

TurkeyBadge… the ad agency that convinced Kraft Brands to use the Hallelujah Chorus in its new commercial for Oscar Mayer Carving Board Sliced Turkey. Not that I won’t thank God for a turkey sandwich, like anything else worth eating, but Handel’s glorious chorus of praise to God isn’t a marketing jingle. And as we all know, “Hallelujah” is just Greek for “Praise God.”

To Kraft Brands’ ad agency: A Golden Turkey Award for taking God’s name in vain in their ad campaign.
