Tim Tebow of the New York Jets certainly is a polarizing figure. Everything he does gets treated by the media microscope. Jest, a humor company, decided to come up with a video parodying Tebow. The video, called “The Passion of the Tebow,” parodies The Passion of the Christ to great laughs.
Tim Tebow is always going to have videos like this come out about him. People will always look to capitalize on his religious background and whatnot. Luckily, Tebow tends to take all of this stuff in stride and he might not even know about this thing. However, I think he would get a kick out of it.
I have a feeling that the religious zealots will act all offended about this thing, but they should realize that is just for fun. They mean no harm to Tim Tebow or religion but instead are looking for a humorous way to portray Tebow. I think it does its job and has plenty of good football connections in it.
Personally, I hope we see more videos like this as we move on. Everyone has been scared to criticize Tebow too much because that opens the floodgates to his defenders. People just need to relax and realize that Tim Tebow will always have fun poked at him. He is an easy target with easy flaws. They aren’t attacking him because he is religious, but because people know it will attract attention. The more attention you give it, the more often stuff like this will happen.
