Chapel Bar and Ogilvy create another holy stir

Chapel Bar and Bistro is risking more religious ire with two new executions in its Seven Years of Almighty Nights campaign, with Ogilvy and Mather.

The series kicked off last year to celebrate the bar's seventh birthday and showed Jesus and Mary in compromising poses after a hard night. The second two seem to show the pair suffering the ill effects of partying amid cigarettes and half eaten food.

Buzzfeed labelled the campaign as among the most blasphemous of the year.

And one from last year.

The photographer was Troy Goodall from IDC.
