thank god CBS rejected this SB ad - I did not want to blow chunks

ugh -

http://money.cnn.com/2010/01/29/news...ad_super_bowl/
ManCrunch's ad, which can be viewed on its Web site, shows two men watching the Super Bowl. Their hands brush each other in the potato chip bowl, which inspires a passionate, male-on-male make-out session.

I just want to have an option to know whats in store.

The latest craze with the M/M or F/F TV shows at least let you know up front what your in for.

Lets keep it that way.

I'm just curious because somehow I don't think this same thread would be here if it were two chicks making out. I find that dynamic interesting...

Not that I'd mind, I'd be down for that....but I don't think it would happen. I'm surprised that company thought their ad would get aired really.

The Superbowl is huge, it's not just guys watching like every other game. Families watch the game and the ads, can't be too crazy lol.

I think a lot of them do it just TO get rejected. PETA does that constantly. They make an outlandish ad, it gets rejected and then you see it on CNN and all the news outlets and suddenly it has 4 million views on YouTube at a cost of, well, whatever the production was.

Actually I don't think I would care for F/F (within the same context) either.

F/F is acceptable because you have to see it in the context. It's not to appeal to homosexual women but geared more towards heterosexual males whereas this add is supposedly aimed at heterosexual men who find it distasteful. That's probably why there's such double standard. I don't mind f/f action either :P

This. A lot of my female friends think like m/m and dislike f/f. A lot of my male friends dislike m/m but like f/f (a lot). It's about context.

Comedian Bill Burr makes a great argument on this subject.

Definitely don't want to see two dudes makin out during the manliest time of the year. I'm down for some f/f action though. My gf, and her friends agree that this commercial is lewd and disgusting, and think that watching two guys makeout is utterly wrong. When asked about the girl on girl action I got responses like "oh that would be hot" or "i wouldn't mind, just no guys making out with each other please!" haha

The commercial doesn't even have good production value anyway.

I love the look on the third man looking at the two men making out.
