    Does this mean you are boycotting Coca-Cola as a company, or just the soda, Sprite?

    While the ad is gay as aids, at least they aren’t telling all men we are pieces of shit. So that’s a plus i guess?

    With that being said, I don’t drink pop so no care here.

    @Dirks9901 Pop? LOL You're from the midwest for sure!

    The message is much different than Gillette. It doesn't vilify a group of people like the Gillette ad did. The overall theme is actually a good one: you feel pride when someone you love has the confidence to be themselves. The context of the ad leaves a lot to be desired. Remember, less than 4% of Americans are homosexual. That is a really small target market for this ad. Weird they would create something like this...

    Corporate virtue signaling does nothing but alienate a portion of your clientele. Why? Why do they feel that it's necessary to "choose sides?"

    Meh, I'm not getting my manties in a wad about this one.

    They didn't really attack anyone like the festering boils on society at Gillette.

    I really wonder how many of the LGB are sick of the TIAQWTFBBQ jumping on their coattails.

    Boioioioioioing.... got me there i guess.

    Call me old fashioned but i prefer to not have to explain to my young kids WTF the just saw on a popular drink TV ad.

    Gross.

    Normalizing the behavior is only going to make it all worse .....
