It takes me back to my teenage years, when anyone over the age of 20 (who I therefore considered *really* old) tried to be cool and hip. Monumentally embarrassing.

The color test screen and superfluous blue 'play' and 'stop' screens, combined with the good audio dub make this an obvious fake. And the 'n-bombs' don't ruin it, they make it.

plus the fact that on the website the following is on the "news" page:

June 15, 2004:
Sadly, our church has closed it's doors. Its been an honor and and a privilige to bring Christs' message to the West Dubuque community for all these years.

May the Lord bless you and keep you always, dear friends.

I feel like it's too awful to be fake.

Looks like the work of Tim & Eric Awesome Show. But, I don't think even they would drop N-bombs like that. I think it's real. Real bad.

Kind of really brings home the "Christ died for out sins" thing in unexpected ways. It is a crucification of music, taste and common sense.

as i posted on youtube comments:

'FAKE' VIDEO as TronicJohn says, video was uploaded same date as website(shown end of vid) is created. Also, the website´╗┐ isn't shown in the internet wayback machine archives. Also, the congregation gets no google mentions(apart from rap). Also, the website is written using CSS but pretends to be low budget pre-2004 website, which would have then used div/tables instead. Also, the website shows a missing document under 'sermons' section, but this 'broken link' is a obviously fake mistake.
