Inside the "He Gets Us" campaign

Transcript

No transcript...

One of the “Foot Washing” ads from the He Gets Us campaign.

IN THIS EPISODE:

It was one of the most talked about ads in the most watched Super Bowl ever: the Jesus-centered campaign He Gets Us. Executive Jason Vanderground explains what the group’s goals are, clarifies where its funding comes from, and answers a key question: who really has the image problem… Christ, or Christians?

As this live stream took place, one of my viewers commented on the groups behind He Gets Us. Clearly I missed something huge, and I’m still kicking myself. I apologize for not being more diligent. Still, it reminds me how good it is to surround yourself with people smarter than you. That certainly came in handy today.

REMINDER: LIVE STREAM MOVES TO 7PM EASTERN TIME

Thanks to everyone who chimed in on my poll about the new nighttime live stream. Based on the responses from you, from my existing streaming audience and from my data on who’s watching, I’m going to start the new stream at 7:00 pm Eastern Time, Wednesday-Friday. That will begin this Wednesday, March 6th. If you’ve never checked out the stream, hopefully this will be a more convenient time for you to take part live and share your questions/thoughts in the chat.
