There's a disporportionate number of gays I television programming. I don't care really, I think they are funny and the stereotypes are mostly true. However I can't recall ever seeing a gay guy in a commercial until this morning. A Bestbuy holiday commercial. Have there been gay guys in commercials before? Is my gaydar mis calibrated?

There is a flaming faggot in a Target commercial, complete with gayboy lisp.

I guess you missed most of the Burger King commercials from that last 10 years.

There is a queer "couple" on one of the Progressive Insurance commercials.

A few years back VW was pushing their sales towards the gay men thing. Remember the ad where the two guys were riding around and picking up used furniture off the street corners in their VW? That was a big ad campaign pushed towards gay men.
It must have worked, since one of my co-workers that has not realized he is gay yet bought a Passat.

There was a Bowflex commercial on a few years ago with three dudes that had some serious gay undertones.

Where were you during the election? There were tons of BHO ads.

That is a sickening commercial. The gayboy in a sleepover with the girls talking about some dreamy dude. I decided that I will not be buying anything from Target anymore.

Well. It was a nice country while it lasted.

I've always suspected those animated Red Bull commercials have an underlying gaiety to them.

Well you are talking about the commercial now. Seems like effective advertisement.
