I know I'm pretty tardy in posting about this topic since the Super Bowl was over a week ago, but this has been on my mind and I am just getting around to putting my opinion into words.
Apparently lots of folks got more than a little peeved about the Snickers commercial that aired during the big game. For some us, the commercials really are the best part (especially if our favored team isn't playing).
This particular commercial is getting flack because two polar opposite groups found it offensive. The homophobes were offended because it showed two guys eating the same candy bar and quasi-kissing. The gay community was offended because after the quasi-kiss, the two guys voiced the need to "do something manly."
Okay, while I understand the affront taken by both positions that have been reported by the media, I don't side with either of them. I'm with the third group that wasn't even given voice about this particular issue.
I'm with the group that thinks it was just a crappy commercial all the way around.
