The Gayest Commercials


Some day, TV commercials won’t be notorious, shocking, celebratory, or even banned just for being gay. Until then, here are 28 of the most groundbreaking (for their time) from around the world.

Banned Jawbone Bluetooth ad.

The two snogging blokes are actors, the rest are a genuine rugby team.

"That French gay cat ad"... for Orangina.

Bizarre, silly, and banned.

Could West Fourth have made a cheesier commercial?

Probably, but this one is bad enough as it is.

Surprising and hot.

Once again tired homophobic themes are used to sell products.
