One viewer’s reaction to an “I’m a Mormon”/Mormon.org video*:
Folks be gettin’ annoyed by LDS-sponsored YouTube ads.
Mormon YouTube ads engage with social media to advertise their religion, an online version of the door-to-door campaigns conducted by the Jehovahs witnesses. The only difference is that you can no longer shut the door if you dont want to talk.
Q: Why are there so many Mormon videos infesting Youtube?
A: The Mormon church is desperate for new members and to repair their horrible public image.
It’s annoying and I wish they would stop. They don’t realize these ads make them even look more weird.
Prediction: They’re not gonna stop. And then they’re gonna wonder why they get singled out for parody on Broadway and elsewhere.
*By the way, this viewer’s name is Lyle aka Guitarmasterx7 and here are the stats for his YouTube channel:
Total Upload Views: 15,984,067
And now, all 105K+ of Lyle’s subs just got this message from their guitar hero (verbatim from the info under his vid):
“I don’t really understand this ad campaign nor do I know why it’s promoted on my videos.”
By way of comparison, the Mormon.org channel on YouTube will someday have more than 8K subscribers. But not today.
P.S. Did anyone else see this free ad that HuffPo ran for the Mormons? I don’t get it. Seriously. Here’s how that
ad post ends:

N-u-t-s (not Katie’s religious sentiments, but the fact that HuffPo is now an open platform for publishing testimonies).
