This is a lovely McDonald’s ad from France:
(Don’t worry, it’s subtitled).
I was prepared to rant about how you’d never see a commercial like this in America, and then I saw something.
It was an ad by KY, [yeah, the lube], (can’t find a photo :/), showcasing “one of America’s top couples”— and it was two dudes.
A quote from the ad: “We were looking for a relationship built on communication, trust, and intimacy, and… from the… time we read their essay to… when they walked in the room for the photo shoot, their love shone through… They’re inspiring!”
It’s a start.
(Also, while on the subject, Prop 8/Hate was overturned! Yaaay for California! Now can we do the rest of the US? Or at least NJ?)
