Hi, all, 

Here is a link to a very cute ad running in Australia for Gay Marriage. 

GetUp! Australia's Ad Is the Cutest Thing to Happen to Gay Marriage Since ... 
The campaign for marriage equality in Maine also has a series of new ad spots out, which are also touted as promoting a vision of shared values and commitment. The message that flashes on the screen at the end says "Love. Commitment. Marriage. ...

This video is Everywhere! :]
It's kinda sappy. But I'm glad it's getting good PR.

Thanks, COOPS, for a reply, at least.
Black Friday and Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday and what not really limit normal human communications. LOL

A comment-question: I wonder if any of this readership feels embarrassed by this TV adv. . .?

You say it is "kinda sappy". Does that mean is is "icky sweet sugary"?

Personally I liked it. I like the human emotions shown and seemingly freely expressed. Besides being 'hunky cute' the actor portrays a a real, nice guy, I think. Someone I could like as a friend. . . ;-)

Coop said...

I liked the video too. :-} I get uncomfortable around sappy/ icky sweet sugary stuff.
Hunky Cute?... are you reading my mind, Justino? That's how I'd describe the actor. I actually wrote my feelings about HIM but I didn't publish that post. I didn't think you'd like that in this context :-}
I wonder if he's available in real life.

Black and blue Friday, cyber Monday yadda yadda. The holidays bring out the worst in capitali$m.

Talk about being out of it!!!! LOL
Gary sent me this video and I posted it on Turkey Day. . .and then posted it again a couple days earlier. . . See what comes of "running around like a chicken with its head cut off" !!! I guess I've actually been doing too many things at the same time. . ..and I know I've never been good at multi-tasking.

MBAD??? Yepper. . .Go to your room. . .now. . .before Gary sends you there! ho ho ho

All REAL love is sappy, isn't it? :-}
Maybe that's why Gay men have trouble with it. They aren't raised to be emotional.
I could be wrong, but our readership may be embarrassed. I don't want to speak for anybody.

I'll admit i'm gay someday. I like being Queer.

p.s. I was reading several of Jim's posts from his blog. . .they most always have a very quieting, calming effect on me. . . it was then that I realized I'd post that Aussie Marriage Equality video. . .

Thanks, JIM, for the quieting mode and mood of your blog! ;-)) It works!

Coop said...

I don't believe in multi-tasking :-}

This video is on my friend LMC's facebook wall. Her wife posted it too.

Haha! Justin!!!
I wondered at the double-posting, hee hee!
Yeah, you don't partake of alcohol, sure, I believe you.

As for your question "I wonder if any of this readership feels embarrassed by this TV adv. . .?"

Nope, not at all, it is sweet, predictable, but sweet. Hell, I'd marry him.

Coop said...

Hey Justin :}

Where are my comments from Monday morning?


JustinO'Shea said...

COOPS. . . Are all you comments posted now? ;-) I posted all of yours. . . .;-)


Coop said...

Yes, Justino. All my comments are posted. Thanks. :}
