About

Buddy Christ (a.k.a Buddy Jesus) is an exploitable image of a cheesy looking Jesus Christ statue. Urbandictionary has the following to say on Buddy Christ:

Originally from the Kevin Smith movie “Dogma”. In the film, Cardinal Glick, during his “Catholicism WOW!” campaign to move the church towards a younger, “hipper” demographic, suggest replacing the crucifix with a new image of Christ. This version is grinning like an infomercial host, with one hand thumbs up and one hand doing a phony Hollywood “Bang-bang” gesture. Imagine Jesus if he were subject to Neilsen ratings.

Buddy Christ is used as an exploitable for a wide range of topics – being the King of Kings, he is not subject to any particular catch phrase or idea. He is often used to indicate something, often in a positive way, though is also a potent tool for sarcasm.

Origins

Buddy Christ originated in the 1999 film Dogma written and directed by Kevin Smith. Buddy Christ has also briefly appeared in other Kevin Smith films.

Google trends indicate a steady though declining interest in the Buddy Christ, mainly from the United States and United Kingdom.
