Lamb of God Logo Accidentally Used to Advertise Religious Easter Play
When something this hilarious happens, it just feels great to be a metalhead. In what is likely to be the funniest metal story you’ll read today, a group of churches in Salem, Va., accidentally used Lamb of God‘s logo for an Easter play of the same name.
The obvious question here is whether this was a subtle piece of humor or a monumentally embarrassing mistake. It’s difficult to believe that a Google Image search wouldn’t come up with obvious clues that Lamb of God is a band, but when you type in “Lamb of God logo,” the exact graphic used for the Easter play is the very first result. Plus, if the person who used the design didn’t scroll down, they may have not even seen an actual picture of the band, which we must point out, used to be called Burn the Priest.
Anyway, various people happened to inform the Salem Community Easter Drama shortly before their first ‘Lamb of God’ performance, which led to the following Facebook post:
We understand there have been some unfriendly comments online because of a graphic we used on one of our invitation tickets that had not been properly vetted. That graphic is on those tickets only and is not the “official” logo for the drama. We apologize for our mistake and for any confusion we may have caused. Now, back to our true purpose, and that is lifting the name of Jesus Christ!
‘Lamb of God’ was apparently a hit, but we can’t help but wonder how many people showed up thinking the ‘Pure American Metal’ band was dropping by to crush skulls for a lovely Easter concert.
