1. I thought the commercial itself was simply bad
Edited on Tue Feb-06-07 10:19 AM by rocknation
What I found offensive was the planned aftermath, including the men using assault and risking poisoning themselves to prove they're not gay.

Married With Children's Al Bundy once swallowed one of his son's acne medicine pads to prove he wasn't gay--he had unknowingly put a pair of shoes on a transvestite--but that made me laugh. It's all in the execution, I guess.
