Well I would assume the average Joe doesn't want to think about two guys kissing as a reminder that your favorite thick, white condiment still exists..and maybe you should go buy some if the two in your fridge are expired. Which at least one of them is.

Thank Heavens that Terez Heinz Kerry is not First Lady. We would have shit like this all over American televisions screens. Icky boys kissing.

Something doesn't wash here. I mean, Torchwood is coming back for a third season, and no one over there seems to mind.

Maybe it's because the chef isn't attractive enough or something.

I agree with K. I wonder if they're sure the complaints aren't from religious douchebags in the US that saw the commercial on the Interwebs.

Best exchange from Torchwood ever?


Gwen: Have you ever eaten alien meat?

Jack: Yup.

Gwen: What was it like?

Jack: Well, he seemed to like it.

Your right that the message is clearly that the "Mum" making lunches could be a New York deli guy because the mayo is so great. That being understood, to me this add, at its core, pivots on the same homophobic joke as the Snickers Super Bowl add. Two straight guys kiss (or in this case one) accidentally (or in this case unknowingly... because where he thinks he's kissing his wife, he's actually kissing a New York Deli guy, because of the mayonnaise... get it? Ha! Ha! Ha!). It's meant to be funny because of how ridiculous the whole situation is made to appear... It just struck me as kinda homophobic form the first view.
