In France It's OK to be Gay. In America, Not So Much

McDonald's is out with a new ad in France which portrays a boy who turns out to be gay having lunch with his father in a McDonald's restaurant. It's harmless enough. Though, of course, dad doesn't really know about his son's sexual preferences.

Without siding with a side...if there really are any sides at all here regarding sexual preference orientation (my apologies for using the wrong word. I just couldn't think of the proper "sexual orientation" phrase at the time of writing), McDonald's does a nice job playing it straight as it were. Boy is gay. Dad doesn't know. Everything's fine. Something in here with which everyone can identify.

You can view the ad here or below. And, as AdFreak astutely points out, the the ad has English subtitles so as to reach an American market without all the outcry it would, no doubt, incur if it were to air on television.
