'A gay-friendly TV advertisement from McDonald's is being praised after going viral online.
The 45-second spot, which has only aired in France, features a teenage boy talking on the phone with an unseen love interest from his school as his father orders from a McDonald's cashier. The boy hangs up when his father approaches with a tray of hamburgers, and his father mentions that it's "too bad your class is all boys, you could get all the girls."
We wanted to show society the way it is today, without judging: there's obviously no problem with homosexuality in France today," Nathalie Legarlantezec, a spokeswoman for McDonald's, told French media.'
"obviously no problem"? The ad is fiction. The people are actors. They represent all of France? "the way it is today"? Again, the ad is fiction.
"without judging"? Hey. What's the big deal? I'll do my thing and you do your thing. This is obviously an attempt to get the viewer to accept the idea that not much of anything matters and sin -- what's that? I think I'll take my preaching from someplace other than McDonald's.
God knows I'm not perfect. We are all sinners but what is this ad really selling? Not hamburgers.
