Not having watched the Super Bowl, all I saw of that ad was a brief clip of them accidentally kissing and jerking away in surprise, so in my mind, I sort of equated it to Disney's Lady and the Tramp eating a spaghetti noodle and then jerking away in surprise. Um. Obviously not. I had no idea they went all homophobic with it at the end, and the proposed endings are even worse. Good grief. Thank you for writing about this.

Not everyone agrees that the commercial is homophobic (everyone agrees that the characters in it are). See http://www.chezlark.com/?p=965 for a well-written alternate view. I think he's wrong, but I do think a lot of people agree with him.
