    I rarely have need of the phrase "on the nose", but I have no other characterization for this.

    I love it. Thanks for posting. icon_biggrin.gif

    Way too vanilla. A hardware store, too. Missed opportunity.

    Sure, it is all a very cute gig, isn't it?

    On a more serious note, Thanks Dear Lord, for not making me live in the world where I would have to listen to every person's declaration of his/her or ts's sexual orientation.

    My curiosity goes only this far...

    Apparently a parody.. meanwhile, it's all a bit odd but I guess it's good.. it was only released on their facebook page.. I don't care if gay people shop or work at your store or not.. and it's Britain, of course they're going to be accepting.. if they're not, we'd call you out on it, like the Tesco situation in the link..

    Agree, the U.S. has such an uptight culture! No sense of humor, especially when it comes to sexual orientation. LOVE the commercial.

    Thanks for the info, which begs the question; what the hell was The Red House ad parodying and, if it wasn't parodying anything, just, what the hell?
