But then, there’s always something or someone that has to ruin the beautiful moment. In the case of this commercial: it happens twice. First, they use the word ‘gaycation.’ Really, really LOGO? That’s the best word play you can come up with for your little ditty of eroticism? Not only that, but is word play even necessary when all you’re trying to do is get a couple of dudes to fly to a warm destination? Let me tell ya, from the chilly part of the country that I watch Drag Race from, there is absolutely no need for anyone, anyone to say the gaycation to make the beach and the sand sound appealing. Second, there’s this super awkward shot of their arms. The black guy is reaching toward something that is glistening, GLISTENING in the sun. Turns out it’s an arm. Seriously? I felt like I was watching Twilight. (And yes I am aware that is a title, and no I will not give it the honor of italics or quotation marks or even an underline. Come to think of it, I might just underline it because I find underlining so appalling. Haha. God. Such a loser!) Anyway, the shot is awkward and I literally cannot watch it without cringing. Somehow, I always forget that there’s this awful moment of armness and poor word choice.
The second commercial that has been playing recently, however, has been for some new animated series about Transformers. I don’t think it looks very good/interesting/entertaining/fun/enjoyable/takeyourpicit’sprobablyawful. Still, it was a much better commercial than sand arms gaycation. So, naturally, I commented on it the first time I saw it: “Cartoons! This is my kind of commercial!” To this, my roommate replied, “they just start having sex.”
