Nivea Men Commercial With Adam Rippon (and Danny Amendola)

In one sense this isn't really political but in another it really is. When I was in college Greg Louganis was the best diver in the world for 2 Olympics in a row. He amazingly won in 1988 even after cracking his head open on a dive. His only endorsement deal was Speedo. He wasn't even out back then but the rumors alone were enough to make endorsements all but impossible for him. And now we see this. A commercial of an openly Adam Rippon and a straight football player complete with flirting banter for a male grooming product. It shows how far some elements of culture have come.

1. Nice.

That's the kind of outfit I'd wear to trumps funeral if I were forced to go. And yes, I'd be sipping champagne and looking for an attractive tango partner.

2. Outfit to the funeral?

The towel or the gold lame?

4. The gold lame

and purple blouse seems in the proper taste for a trump funeral service. I'd turn up the volume on my ring tone of course and try to get many people to call me.

5. LOL

I think the gold platform shoes (think - Disco!) would be perfect.

And bring a sandwich - something smelly - salami and brie. Maybe a large bag of potato chips and a six pack of beer. So you can share.

6. Love this Ad

It says so much about how far we have come. Today's young people could not possibly care less about anyone's sexuality. It's personal business. I'm glad to see this reflected in the business climate as well.

7. Certainly not all young people are enlightened in this regard

I will say we have rounded a tipping point in that it isn't cool to be anti gay any more. When I was in high school a large majority were anti gay to some extent with a significant portion of that majority willing to act upon those feelings. Now I think that there is a minority who are anti gay with some of that willing to act on it with a majority pro gay with some of those willing to act on it. Certainly a better situation but by no means a nirvana of tolerance.

9. True Confessions:

I have a long sleeve purple satin shirt with opalescent buttons.

However, I don't have any gold lame clothing. I won't tell which gold sequined item of clothing I own though.
