Thanks to an EV Grieve reader for pointing out this new Capital One commercial featuring Jerry Stiller ... which eventually desecrates one of the the East Village's finest treasures...
Watch the whole thing for yourself here.
Don't get any ideas, Capital One!
*shudder* That was terrifying.
Over my dead body, Capital One. That church is sacred.
Makes sense. Nothing is sacred in the banking biz. Money, money, money, monnnnn-ney....MONEY!
I'm surprised that Jerry Stiller would participate in something like this. He's a very strong supporter of progressive causes usually.
Oh for god's sake Walt, "Participate in something like" what...? a TV commercial?
I'm not even religious and I'm deeply offended and disappointed by this shameless naked disrespect. God have mercy on the filthy black souls of whoever is responsible for this commercial.
Yes, participating. He is lending his name and image to Capital One. Just because he's getting paid for it doesn't mean he's not participating. And don't tell us to lighten up. Open your eyes, banks are PREYING on the American public. Having said that, I must say; Jerry Stiller is extremely lovable, no matter who he's shilling for!
What's in my wallet? A gun bitch! Leave that church alone!!!
Cast out those money changers!
Some people get it, some don't.
For the rest, what Anonymous 3:07 PM
He is lending his name, and St. Marks Church rented their facade.
Credit (blame) where credit is due.
If that isn't a statement on our society, I don't know what is?
bow down little plebes, and pray to your new master.
The great thing about it is that St. Mark's Church got paid for this. And notice that the building is not visually desecrated as the commercial never shows the church steeple. So to the unknowing eye, the building looks like an old bank building.
Regarding Jerry Stiller, the political irony is that he and Ann Meara did fantastic radio commercials for Amalgamated Bank (the labor bank). I'm not going to begrudge him for doing a commercial for a regular bank. But I wonder if part of his reasoning was that St. Mark's Church was going to be paid as well.
