The fast food chain released its first gay advertisement, to be broadcast in France. Apparently, gay community is divided in its reception. One part complains the advert shows a closeted, not an out gay. (Or better still, a gay couple.) The other part welcomes it as a first step. (A sub-group of the latter adds in the same breath, “but we still detest MacDonald’s in itself”.)
Myself? Well, my problem has always been underweight, not overweight, and I mostly prefer to have my meal over and done with asap, so I’ve nothing against… Come again? I see, the out/closeted matter. I side with those who like the advert. Partly for the obvious reasons: it’s a start, there are probably more closeted than out gay teenagers in France, so probably it’s more realistic, the actor is hot (och ay, let’s face it) – but mostly I like the way he played it. I don’t think I ever let such facial expressions or glances surface while still in the closet myself, but I surely often felt very much like making exactly those.
