Rappin for Jesus with Pastor & Mrs. Jim Colerick Is Your Clearly Phony But Who Cares Viral Hit of the Day
There is absolutely no chance that this is legit. But that should in no way affect your decision to enjoy every second of it.
“I helped my pastor make this music video when I was in high school. Thought you guys might get a kick out of it! May the Lord bless and keep you,” says YouTube uploader Brian Spinney.
What follows is…well…is something. JC means a lot of Pastor Jim Colerick and he knows that if he wants to reach the “urban” crowd, he has to speak the language (Warning: NSFW language):
The video has flown to the front page of reddit, where the skeptics have been hard at work figuring out what’s going on here. On January 15th, 2013, two things happened. First, the YouTube account that uploaded this video was created. Second, this page was registered. It’s supposedly the official website of West Dubuque Church of Christ, led by “Pastor Jim.” In the “news” section, we learn that the church was apparently shuttered in June of 2004.
As amazing as it would be if this was simply one youth pastor’s misguided attempt to connect with the kids, we’re just looking at a very well-made comedy video. Emphasis on very well-made.
