Masonophobia: Mercedes-Benz Super Bowl Commercial Links Freemasonry to Satan
Sunday, February 3, 2013
The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL), the highest level of professional American football in the United States.
It is the second-largest day for U.S. food consumption, after Thanksgiving Day
The Super Bowl is also among the most watched sporting events in the world, mostly due to North American audiences, due to its high viewer-ship, commercial airtime during the Super Bowl broadcast is the most expensive of the year. Due to the high cost of investing in advertising on the Super Bowl, companies regularly develop their most expensive advertisements for this broadcast.
One such advertisement is the one you see below by Mercedez Benz
(Update 15/06/13: Mercedes has now removed the Rolling Stones song 'Sympathy for the Devil' which aired in the original Superbowl Commercial from it's posted official YouTube clip and replaced it with different background music.)
I found two places in the advert where the evil character is shown wearing a ring that shows the square and compasses.
Notice the ring worn on the ring finger of the left hand (also notice the pointed nails!!)
It seems to me that Mercedes Benz has knowingly or unknowingly depicted Freemasonry in poor light by allowing the evil character to use the ring with the square and compasses - which is the most well known of our symbols.
I feel this is a very poor move by Mercedes Benz and that they are going to lose a lot of good will due to this advertisement.
This seems to be the latest of the attacks on our gentle craft. Read my earlier article this month on Masonophobia here.
Masonophobes come in various shapes and sizes. Just did not imagine it could also come in the form of an excellent car company like Mercedes Benz!!
We still wish you well Mercedes Benz.
Just hoping that you pull this distasteful ad from the Super Bowl...
