At Least the Super Bowl Commercials Were Pretty Gay

At Least the Super Bowl Commercials Were Pretty Gay

With nary a pop diva in sight, Super Bowl LIII was even more of a heterosexual affair than it already is — and the Super Bowl definitely called me a fudgepacker in fifth grade. The NFL’s season finale (that’s a thing, right?) booked Maroon 5 for the halftime show, and even though shirtless Adam Levine does look like half the guys who are “looking for now” on your dating app of choice, Maroon 5 is to straight people what Janet Jackson is to queers.

Thankfully, the Super Bowl was made marginally less heteronormative thanks to some, if I may say so myself, pretty insidious gay propaganda in the form of commercials. Luckily for you, we compiled all the commercials that fell somewhere on the Kinsey scale, so let’s dive in.

Pepsi
I’m a Coke girl, so this commercial about Steve Carell, Lil John, and Cardi B trying to convince people that a Pepsi is more than “ok” was extremely relatable.
How gay is it: Cardi saying “okurrrrr” at a frequency only her daughter Kulture can hear.

 

Burger King
Andy Warhol eats a cheeseburger. That’s it, that’s the whole ad.
How gay is it: Your dad going “he looks like a queer” as he reaches past you for more guacamole.

How gay is it: Already a trans icon, the sentient egg is now queering the Super Bowl.

 

Olay
Undisputed gay icon Sarah Michelle Gellar returns to her scream queen roots, getting chased by a slasher who just wants to compliment her skin.
How gay is it: I’m about to read a sexy Buffy/Willow fanfiction.

 

Doritos
Chance the Rapper is joined by Backstreet Boys to promo Flamin’ Hot Doritos.
How gay is it: You practicing kissing on a pillow you called AJ in middle school.
