(ABCNEWS.GO) — Commuters in Melbourne, Australia got a surprise this morning when they spotted a giant Jesus hot-air balloon emerging from the clouds.

The Jesus was seen wearing an Australian soccer jersey donning the Sportsbet logo with the slogan #KEEPTHEFAITH.

Sportsbet, an Australian online gambling website, said its 151-foot tall replica of Brazil’s famous landmark will give a dose of intervention for the Australia national association football team this week.

The marketing campaign outraged some politicians and business executives.
