Gay-Friendly French McDonald’s Ad Not Very Gay-Friendly

06.02.10 8 years ago 18 Comments

Over in France, McDonald’s is trying to appeal to its overwhelming gay population with this new commercial about a young gay man in McDonald’s. The tag line is venez comme vous êtes (“come as you are”), which is odd considering that the boy’s father is talking about all the girls that his son could be dating, and what a shame it i sthat he goes to an all-boys school. That’s right: come to McDonald’s, where you’re free to be yourself, as long as your father isn’t with you, because man, he’s going to be awfully disappointed when he finds out you’re gay.

On a positive note, gays are at least more welcome in French businesses than Algerians.
