Could Hate "Them." Instead Only Pity Them.
I found this at Kenneth in the 212's blog.
And I love it. Reportedly Heinz caved to Christian right-wing nuts and pulled the spot after only a week on the air. Funny thing is that I don't necessarily think that idea was to make it "gay." I feel certain that the folks who came up with the spot intended for the humor to be in that "Mom" was decidedly a New York deli owner/operator. Stereotypically, the character is a man, and here, casting is dead on.
Too bad the so-called Christians missed the whole point.
Jesus would love the spot.
