My husband saw this ad on television, but almost the whole first half was deleted, so it didn't seem gay at all. Maybe Budweiser backed out of showing the full ad?

Budweiser, Coors, and the other majors have BEEN supporting the Homosexual Agenda for decades now. Typically, they’ve reserved such advertising for niche gay publications.
If I recall, the SF Sado-Maso-Anti-Christian orgy is sponsored by one of the beer companies.

Gays and Lesbians have served in the Military for decades and kept to themselves and been quiet. The Libs on the outside cause the problems IMO.

I thought it was his brother and they were having a welcome home party in the family barn with his family. Give me a break.

So who is the man awaiting the soldiers homecoming? Is it the soldiers significant other? Is it his brother? He could just be an old college chum for all we know.
Yeah, that was my take on it. His brother or buddy getting a party ready for a soldier coming home. This is a controversy?
I just watched the full ad, and it doesn’t seem “gay” at all. Seems like a younger brother coming home to his family, and his brother and sister embrace him.

I was watching a hockey game on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation last night and they ran a Bud commercial. With the great beers in Canada someone would have to be nuts to drink Clydesdale p!ss.

to see the video you have to sign in or sign up. I don’t care enough about the video to do either.
I see 2 bff’s celebrating in his home coming.

Viewing the hugging men as gay is plausible, but not necessary. They could also be brothers or friends. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that the commercial was intentionally kept ambiguous.

Seriously? What was wrong with that?

I vote that it’s not a gay ad, because at the :00:23 mark, he’s sitting next to a girl and he looks like he wishes she would shut up. Typical of most straight men. OTOH...LOL!

Doesn't appear "gay" to me at all. I figured the guy the soldier hugs was an older brother, one who served in the military a few years prior, and therefore knows exactly what the returning soldier feels like. That was a hug of friendship and camaraderie and brotherhood, not sexual perversion.
If there's a homosexual tilt to that commercial, it's way below my radar, which is usually pretty accurate.
I thought it was a fine tribute. And I don't particularly like Budweiser. :)

The full ad is highly inappropriate. You ALWAYS hug your parents first, unless you’re married or engaged. Maybe the girl he hugged was their surrogate.

Heh.. I’ve seen that ad numerous times and it never occurred to me that the soldier was gay. I figured the guy who greeted him at the barn was his father or his brother. It looked like a man hug, not a romantic “can’t wait to break out the vaseline” hug. Nah, this was an innocent ad, and a good one. Anyway, what kind of sick family would spring a surprise “welcome home” party for a couple of reunited homos? That would be totally unrealistic, even for a commercial. Plus, no beer company wants its product to be known as “bugger beer” - - yeah, that would really help sales.
No straight person would find an inkling of gay in that ad.
