Snickers Commercial

Wow, the reaction (more here) to the Snickers Super Bowl commercial has been pretty interesting. Apparently, the ad site for the campaign "also featured video of players from the Super Bowl teams reacting to the kiss. 'This type of jeering from professional sports figures at the sight of two men kissing fuels the kind of anti-gay bullying that haunts countless gay and lesbian school children on playgrounds all across the country,' Human Rights Campaign president Joe Solmonese said in a statement."

(Some of the comments are here, in a blog with it's own bias . . . )

I can buy into that part, but the commercial itself doesn't seem out of line to me. I tend to agree with this blogger . . .

Still, some interesting dialogue . . .
