The Blessed Sacrament shouldn't be subjected to such vulgar "fun making".

I agree.  This commercial is mocking soccer fanatics, not Catholics.  I don't think Hyundai is being blasphemous at all.

The comical, vulgar and flippant comparisons between the Blessed Sacrament and degenerate sports fans would not go well at an old-school chancery.

Definitely crosses the line.  I hope Hyundai goes out of business.

I'm not saying it was tasteful, but it wasn't an attack on Catholicism.

This was pretty much my assessment as well...I thought the thing was making fun of soccer fans as well and using the visuals of something they (the fans) know is sacred to juxtapose the absurdity of their football zealotry...

Well done comercial.

I wrote them my objections.  And I, too, hope they go bankrupt.  They are apparently already spiritually bankrupt.
