Gay McDonald's Ad Causes French Stir

Friday, 04 Jun 2010 07:07 AM

A gay-themed McDonald's advertisement in France is causing a stir around the globe.

The advertisement, which uses the slogan "Come As You Are", was meant to "recognize the diversity of McDonald's customers in France," a McDonald's Australian spokeswoman told the Sydney Morning Herald.

The ad opens with a closeted young boy talking on the phone with his lover and looking longingly at their class picture. After telling his lover "I miss you too," he quickly hangs up when his father returns with their order.

The father sees the class photo and begins to reflect on his own youth, saying, "You look just like me at your age. Let me tell you, I was quite the ladies' man!"

He then says to his son, "Too bad your class is all boys ... you could get all the girls." The boy wryly smiles to himself, and the advertisement slogan appears on the screen.
