That is awful!!
Wow, I don't see how that's mocking Jesus. It says how soccer is almost a religion, yet for ONE CHURCH in Argentina it is. It's an actual church that really LOVES soccer, it's not a mocking of Jesus. We have to quit crying about everything.
This ad is about the Church of Maradona in Argentina. I don't see why people are upset with Hyundai. If you want to be upset go talk to the people of that church.

We take comments of this nature very seriously. Because of feedback like yours, we have removed the ad from all Hyundai communications and stopped airing it.We credit the passionate World Cup viewers and Hyundai owners for raising this issue to us. The unexpected response created by the ad, which combined both soccer and religious motifs to speak to the passion of international soccer fans, prompted us to take a more critical and informed look at the spot. Though unintentional, we now see it was insensitive. We appreciate your feedback and hope you will accept our sincere apologies.With appreciation,Hyundai Motor America
