Watch What Would Jesus Buy?
As suggested by the title, this 2007 documentary is a pun of the phrase What Would Jesus Do? The film focuses on the themes and ideas that revolve around Christmas and the over-consumption and materialistic ideals in American culture on American society. Along with fellow activists, Bill Talen, also known as Reverend Billy, become involved in a street choir which comes to be known as The Church of Stop Shopping. This church-like choir embarks on a cross-country adventure where they sing songs and preach their message about the cons and negative intentions of businesses and corporate chains particularly around the holiday season. By the end of the journey, thousands have joined Reverend Bill in what ultimately became a national movement with one main idea-Love and peace, not money and things-are the most important aspects of the holiday season.
