Commercials are Gay.

Don’t get me wrong here, as the founder of my high school’s Gay Straight Alliance, as well as the former roommate of a very gay (and very fabulous) man, I think it is a shame that our societies can’t deal with gay people, especially in the case of Heinz’s newest commercial:

To quote Bill O’Reilly on his show, “The O’Reilly Factor,”

“I just want mayonnaise. I don’t want guys kissing.”

Upon the removal of the above Heinz commercial after 200 people complained to the network, I can only point out that there are several other great “gay” commercials out there that have not been removed. They are tasteful, well-done, and innovative ads that are forward-thinking to the point of including this “inappropriate” alternative lifestyle. In fact, the place I intern at made one of them!

So check them out. I must warn you, however, that the guys in them are insanely attractive, which is synonymous for homosexual. Just in case you forgot.

Dolce and Gabanna, “Time”

Levi’s, “Phone Booth”

    On O’Reilly’s show, even the talking heads who are supposed to agree with him didn’t think the Heinz ad had any kind of ‘gay’ message. It’s seriously not related to homosexuality at all- the WHOLE POINT OF THE COMMERCIAL is that it’s so wacky that the mom is actually a New York deli counter guy! It’s pushing an agenda about as much as that Kevin James/Adam Sandler movie was. The Levi’s one is really cute and silly. And the D&G ad is cool looking but I don’t understand it 😦

    Yeah, I fucking love the D&G ad. I think it has something to do with the time/space continuum and running into yourself when you go back in time? some kind of concept like that. however, i know for sure that it also has to do with selling clothes, and hot people.

    I found the d&g ad hilarious. It’s such a pretentious ad, yet when the clone couples actually kiss, the edgy synth music suddenly turns into a series of stifled farts.

    Well that’s weird. I swear I’ve seen the Levis Phone Booth commercial with a woman –
    Yes. Yes I did.
    And after a bit of poking around, it seems that
    apparently, you only get it if you’re watching a gay station, or America’s Next Top Model.
    At least, over here in TUKOGBANI.

    But that’s missing the point entirely. There’s not a single person in any of those ads that I wouldn’t happily bone til the cows came home, and then even after the cows came home, their lowing infusing our passion with a certain ambience similar to the D&G ad.

    They’re Synthcows, obviously.

    Oh, and also, I present to you, D&G, Time 2: <a href=”” A.K.A.W.T.F.

    Betty? Could you do your magic delete-a-tard thing with that last comment? Here’s what I meant to post:

    D&G Gay Time! Take Two

    hahaha hell no, now I can have a biffed comment all to myself. i was wondering what AKAWTF stood for though?

    ALSO: yeah, the levi’s commercial was filmed with both a man and a woman. i think the agency just wanted options.
