Male kiss adds sauce to Heinz mayo ad
The Guardian, UK ^ | Monday June 16, 2008 | Mark Sweney

Posted on 06/23/2008 12:07:18 AM PDT by Lokibob

Heinz is set to challenge some viewer expectations with a light-hearted TV campaign that features two men sharing a kiss.

The TV commercial, which promotes a new range of dressing called Heinz Deli Mayo, breaks tonight and will be supported by a press campaign.

(Excerpt) Read more at guardian.co.uk ...


TOPICS: Chit/Chat
KEYWORDS: gay; heinz; homosexual; tv
Go to the link to see the video, if you have the stomach for it.

This is wrong on so many levels I do not know where to begin.

Children, homosexuality, kissing etc.

Here is a start: Why a New York deli? "sweet Buns" Mayo

OK, so it is the UK, but they are only a stones or tea bag throw away from us.

Theresa Heinz could have been the first lady today, here.

There will be no more Heinz products in my house. Not a boycott, just a statement of values.

Things like this are why I got rid of cable.

I control everything I see via DVDs. It is the best!

It’s just ‘lighthearted.’ Oh goody, says the commie press. Boycott them, people.

Sugar and tomato in mayo? ;)

I think I’m done to. I avoided their stuff during the 2004 election, but then I lapsed after a while.

Any suggestions for a good ketchup?

Any ideas out there for a good replacement for Heinz 57 sauce?

Right on!

Whenever I visit my folks (who have cable), I am stunned at how many irritating commercials there are in the course of only an hour. I figure about a third of one hour of television programing are for commercials. Who needs it?

Hunts katsup, I would think as a start. Got to look at wally world to see if there are any alternatives other than Hunts.

However, bigger problem, Heinz owns ore-ida potatoes. THAt is going to be a problem out here in the west.

When I was a kid, Del Monte ketchup made a homecooked hamburger taste like it was ordered in a restaurant (which was good).

Well that’s fine because I’m sure that Thurston Howell IV has shared a kiss with a pretty boy or two.

Yep, WalMart house brand ketchup is really good AND they also offer a Heinz 57 knock-off that is as good as the Heinz product. Heinz products have been off my menu since Kerry’s presidential attempt.(He served in Vietnam by the way)

I dunno. I bow to no one when it comes to my hatred of the homo agenda, but I thought this was kinda funny and clearly satire. I think that this is a MEDIA created fiasco and that it was not really supposedly to be about being gay...it was about being from NY. Clearly the “mum” is supposed to be a wife, not a male partner.

I tend to agree with you. If it were about the homosexual agenda, then they would never have used the "deli" man. Clearly, this would be an offense to homosexuals, because everyone knows that homosexuals are ultra-hip, ultra-cool, and very sophisticated. Everyone "knows" this because anyone in the ultra-hip media dare not portray them in any other way.

I think it was intended for comedy while at the same time being what every ad exec aims for and that is a certain "edginess". Obviously, with the media focus that the commercial has generated, it failed as attempts at comedy so often do.

Heinz mayo? - That’s queer!

We’ll stick with Best Foods (Hellman’s).

Hey, why stop with a gay kiss? Why not have them wearing buttless chaps?

Wow...yet another thread on this Heinz British Mayo ad.

Its humor folks. 'Mum' via her use of Heinz products has morphed into 'a New York deli guy.' Their product (Heinz) makes her the definitive expert on sandwich making...not Brit mum anymore...she's channeling her inner deli guy (the paper hat, the white apron, the tough tawking NY accent). Its humor...not a gay lifestyle promotion. Watch it for yourselves (honest...you won't faint!)

Well, there is "W Ketchup." Four years ago, it was good enough to be denounced by the folks at CommunistsforKerry.com.
