Lol, where is this commercial from? I love it. Not many companies have the guts to make a gay commercial… but it's effective because it gets a response from the audience. Plus the company's saying, “hey, we're okay with gay people” and maybe that'll get gay people to buy from them. =\
Sig? Yeah, I'll get to it. >_<

Ummm lol!

Ok, , not joking around here, but the true message of the add is is:
That “new York” style sandwich spread, or whatever it is, is apparently so authentic it turns your wife into a real New York deli chef. Or whatever Deniro is supposed to be there.

It's a very British ad in that was in that it's a little naive… But if it was an American ad about some British spread you could find some similar sort of horrendous cultural stereotyping, although without the unintentional inferred gay connotations because American people are amazingly ultra sensitive to anything that even looks a little gay. -Just being a British man is usually enough isn't it? lol!

i dont see any reason why they cant be a gay couple…
i mean, gay people buy heinz too…so they might advertise it to them.

also that “mom” raised his leg in the last scene

lol

also i recently found this…200 people complained? thats it? and they pulled the ad.

Conservative people is conservative. They also take the fun out of life. -__-

The ad is pretty awesome though. Too bad they pulled the ad just because of those 200 people.

I also don't see any reason they can't be magical dragons taking human form and disguising themselves as a family in the suburbs. lol!

They're not meant to be seen as a gay couple, that's not the joke. It is a side joke, but not the one that is intended.

If it was pulled, it probably wasn't because of complaints exactly or the pressure from “the American family association” it would be because too many people didn't get what the ad was about: as evidenced by all commeneters here as well as the 200 complainers. lol!

Much like those Microsoft ads with Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld. I thought that first one was funny and cool, and I don't even like Sienfeld, but too many people just weren't smar… well for whatever reason they “get” them and some people even complained they looked gay so they pulled it…

Personally, I think people are way too literal these days. people always think the simplest explanation is the right one because they're too used to looking at simple entertainment. No one understands metaphor, double entendres, irony, inference…

Being British, I interpret the gay reference as being deliberate, although staged in such a way as to make it look as though the ad men slipped it in (double entendre) unintentionally. It's a kind of two layered nudge nudge, wink wink, British thing, which you're interpreting as naive when in fact they've buried the humour too deep. The stereotyping is an ad mans joke which admittedly, some people will take at face value.
Er……..boo!
