I have seen the ads yesterday and now today! One is two gay men and the other is two lesbian women. This is a car ad folks and it is nothing more than a car for for gays and lesbians! I'm totally disgusted and goin to tell Lexus I will not ever buy any of their products!
I thought gays were always after Hummers.
What the hell are you talking about? The car is parked between tow houses and the characters are discussing who the car is for....nothing to do at all with gay couples...whatsoever. Oy!
I guess you're right. I saw the guys yesterday and mentioned it to my son today. I thought for sure it was a gay-targeted commercial. Just as I'm talking to my son, the women came on. It seemed a bit more obvious in that commercial that they were neighbors.
Excuse me while I go rush to judgment on some other issue...
why so rude? Please, this isn't DU jerk! Me and my hubby have spent the whole weekend together, thanks! Why don't you go to church, cause you you need to learn how to be kind to other's!
Commercial Closet: Lexus rolls into the market
See my earlier post.
Mercy me that was being kind,at least I'm not assuming two people looking at a car are gay...hehe
That article is about how Lexus is joining Toyota in courting the G&L community. No Holiday ad, unless I missed it.
Me too. Although, it is a really poorly written ad. I can't imagine how people are either supposed to understand what's going on, or decide to buy a Lexus based on the ad.
A bunch of Freepers are using the word gay and talking about gay issues, so they must be marketing the thread to gays. It is SO obvious to anyone reading that thread. I think I'll boycott it.
And in Hall's defense..that Lexus did make the GAY 2007 favorite cars..as did the Cadillac Escalade and a Mercedes.
I know it's the queers.
They're in it with the aliens.
They're building landing strips for gay
Get a Bugatti, they just make cars, they don't advertise and with a base price of $1.25 MILLION, you never need to worry about your neighbor having the same car.
...you missed it alright
Um? I'm pretty sure the owner of Lexus is Japanese. He was walking around bragging about being gay?
I'm gonna boycott Rolls Royce, too.
I'm tired of them producing and marketing fine luxury automobiles that target the affluent driver.
Shameless, I tell you, shameless.
Thanks for posting the funniest thread of the day.

I should start watching TV commercials?
Of course, there are ads that are heterosexually suggestive, too. I recall seeing one ad featuring NBA basketball players talking about 'finger-rolls' (a kind of lay-up shot). The last line went something like, "You could finger roll...", followed by snickering. Note the absence of the dash between 'finger' and 'roll', meaning 'finger' is being used as a verb, 'roll' as the noun. I think that ad was pulled fairly quickly.
We get the society we deserve, I guess...
