I love watching T.V. but I hate commercials with a passion. To make the time go by faster I created my own game…spot the heteronomitivity in the T.V. commercial. Once you pay attention, it can be very interesting the ways a commercial for dental floss can squeeze in a heternomitive agenda. One of my personal favorites is a cat food commercial, which is so heteronomitive you almost forget about the cat.
This got me thinking, are there any commercials with LGBT influences? Well my friends the answer is yes, and I found a boatload of them on YouTube. The sad part is most of them are foreign, or only seen on Logo, but nonetheless they are still pretty cool.
Here are some of my favorites.
The gay one… This one is so cute that it makes you want to eat McDonalds everyday!
The lesbian one…. took me a moment, but I lol’ed when I realized what was going on.
The bisexual one… I can’t understand what they are saying at the end, but words aren’t necessary.
The transgender one… It was hard to find one that wasn’t borderline offensive, but I think this one does the trick!
My hope is one day theses will be a staple on mainstream T.V. Then maybe commercials will be less painful to watch.
