'I ain't no freakin' chimp': Creationists attack Dr Pepper after soda firm posts parody 'evolution' ad

By Daily Mail Reporter

PUBLISHED: 23:22 EST, 13 September 2012 | UPDATED: 01:49 EST, 14 September 2012

What started as a fun marketing scheme designed to entice a few 'likes' on Facebook quickly turned into a PR disaster for Dr Pepper as Christian fundamentalists took a dislike to the evolution-themed advert.

Within minutes of the 'evolution of flavor' image being posted online, negative comments started flooding in from fundamentalist Christians and creationists who claimed to be offended by the image which suggested that Dr Pepper may have played a key role in the evolution of man.

'I ain't no freaking chimp,' wrote one angry poster. 'No more Dr Pepper for my household. God Bless y'all.'

A word of words broke out on Dr Pepper's Facebook page, as atheists and other evolution supporters joined the debate.

'The day your faith is shaken by a Dr Pepper ad is the day you should probably start reconsidering your faith,' wrote one non-believer.

The debate continues to rage over the image, a play on Darwin's Theory of Evolution, which has attracted over 1,800 comments.

So far there is no formal response to the uproar from Dr Pepper, but one Facebook user put forward this interesting theory: 'I bet the social media manager who posted this is probably quietly on his/her way home from work, not knowing what he's/she/s started - LOL.'

Muslims - kill people who insult their religion.

Christians - write strongly worded youtube comments.

Bingo. They have the right to disagree with the ad, but if you're that upset over something this stupid, there's probably some underlying issues with your faith.

To be fair, in the Middle East, a nice fire bombing or killing is pretty much the equivalent of a strongly worded comment. You have to strap a bomb to your chest if you really want to get noticed.

Why are people talking about this when they should be talking about Dr. Pepper's third quarter earnings?

Maybe they should have another ad with Buddy Christ drinking a Pepper and riding a Dino.

You can't see, but you know what that "midgit" is holding? A can of delicious Dr. Pepper. What more proof do you need?

Breaking News: White House asks YouTube whether "The Evolution of Dance" violates their terms of service. Just kidding, y'all. They only do that for Muslims.

I wonder if scientists will do carbon dating on a can of Dr. Pepper.
