See “The McPassion” for Lent This Year?

Two years ago this Ash Wednesday, Mel Gibson released his much-hyped “The Passion of the Christ” to adoring, and some not-so-adoring, audiences everywhere.

This Ash Wednesday brings a new “Passion” of sorts–“The McPassion.” This time, it’s a four minute long movie short. Co-produced by Benjamin Hershleder and Rik Swartzwelder, “The McPassion” is a comedy spoof inspired in honor of dear old Mel. And it’s already creating controversy and division (of course) among Christians.

On its official website, the only synopsis available says of “The McPassion”: “The greatest story ever told and a fast food giant unite to deliver the tie-in of tie-ins. While supplies last.” Viewers are greeted by a giant “McDonald’s” golden arches with a cross emerging from part of the M. And you can find a countdown until the movie short becomes available.

Tune in to a computer near you this Ash Wednesday. It’s only available for 40 days and 40 nights. (And I’m not kidding about that!)
