Is Snickers being homophobic… again? Answers on a novelty postcard please

Ding-a-ling-a-bling So Snickers has once again angered people who get angry on behalf of the gays by airing a could-be-construed-as-homophobic-but-we’re-not-quite-sure advert.

Basically things happen as follows… Mr. T (that milk drinking aviophobic fella from The A-Teamas seen above) pulls up in a truck alongside a nice young man in a tight yellow trew and shouts: ‘Speed walking? I pity you fool. You are a disgrace to the man race. It’s time to run like a real man.’

He then shoots Snickers bars at young yellow-shorted chap and the advertisement ends with the thoroughly ridic slogan ‘Get some nuts’. Hmmm.

So this got our dolly noggins a-tickin’. Is a man who power walks automatically gay because he takes care of himself and looks darling in a pair of short shorts? Or have Snickers gone and fucked up again – remember the mechanics who are appalled when they accidentally ‘kiss’ while eating a Snickers bar simultaneously? No? Oh it was officially retardinoid and the ad was pulled. *Phew*

The new Snickers ad has only received two complaints on these fair Isles, but it’s Stateside lovelies that are most offended by the advert – despite the fact it hasn’t even been shown there. So what do you think? Is this yet another advert mocking gennelmen who prefer bums, or ‘political correctness gone mad’. Turn over your papers, you may begin…

  1. I actually find it offensive that people are finding this offensive.There isn’t even a hint that this guy is gay. It’s assumed because he’s keeping fit. I don’t get it.

  2. Oh come on! This is not offensive in any way! PC gone mad. Is it just me or do the Americans not seem to have a sense of humour? It’s worth a chuckle.

  3. Not homophobic in any way. Have you even seen the advert? Mr T is taking the piss because the guy looks like a fool because he is speed walking and not jogging. It made me laugh!

  4. With Snickers’ track-record, it probably does have a homophobic undertone. But conversely, are we being homophobic-lite to assume the man power-walking is a gay just becuase he’s, well, power-walking? I know you said all this me me me, but I’m just going through a stream of conscioussness phase at the moment. I’ll grow out of it.
