Voted "This commercial is neither offensive nor funny."
This is another in a long line of things that to be offended by them, you have to be politically motivated to be offended in the first place. We are becoming way too sensitive on certain subjects and it is bound to backfire to the point where even passive tolerance of one another is discarded.
You'd figure that at some point there would just be so many things to be offended by that it would get tiring. I know I get tired just trying to digest how much stuff offends people.
Neither funny nor offensive. It wasn't funny because it was obvious where it was going. That particular joke has been done to death.
I'm sure there are some gay people for whom it brings up bad memories. Some may have been disowned by their famines after a sit down conversation like that. But you can't walk on egg shells all the time. Hell, maybe some people seeing that commercial had a loved one killed in a crash while in an Infinity. And here comes this commercial rubbing it in their faces.
We shouldn't nitpick every little thing.
But it wasn't funny.
I'm gay, and I am not offended by this commercial in the slightest.
I just don't find it to be that funny of a commercial.
Some of the comments from YT claim that it trivializes the coming-out process. I was interested in whether there's a similar sentiment around here.
Wow, that never crossed my mind at all. Whenever I see this commercial all I think about is how snobbish some people are. Never even thought about the "coming out" paralell.
