    INTRO
    Hey fags, I’m going to make my own McDonalds commercial. And I want you to be a star. All you have to do is make your own home video showing yourself being a big homo and loving McDonalds. Now let me give you the background on why in case you’re not aware of what’s going on, and then the details.

    In spite of a pro-gay McDonalds commercial running in France, the COO Don Thompson said some bullshit that it will never run in the US. He also explained more bullshit...how in other cultures certain things are the norm and it’s not in others. This suggests that being gay isn’t normal in the US. Well I’m here to say he’s dead wrong. I want to make a McDonalds commercial that completely embraces homosexuality, depicting dozens of gays, lesbians, and transgender people identifying themselves as such and loving McDonalds. Essentially, I want to shove homosexuality down McDonalds throat for them taking a passive anti-gay stance in the U.S. The point of this commercial is to say that his hindering homosexual exposure in the media in America is only going to make it louder and more apparent. So this is where you come in.

    I want YOU to make a very short video about yourself and McDonalds. I want you to identify yourself as a homo and identify that you LOVE McDonalds. Any age and ethnicity welcome. LESBIANS highly encouraged (since I don't know where to find them online).



    RULES AND GUIDELINESS
    (The more you follow them the more likely you’ll end up in the video. So please read carefully.)


    1.
    You need to either SAY that you are gay/lesbian/transgendered or ACT like it’s PAINFULLY obvious that you are. You don't have to say anything (in which case you must ACT blatantly gay), but If you are talking, then speak CLEARLY and don’t have any noise going on in the background. NO MUSIC in the background either. If you know someone who is heterosexual in reality and wants to do this, then tell them they're going to have to ACT like you’re a homo or say they're are a homo if they want to be in this commercial.

    2.
    Please try to have McDonalds food with you in your video, like a McDonalds bag, fries, burger, coke, shake, etc. Try your best to make sure the word McDonalds is shown on screen too. Feel free to interact with the food, talk with food in your mouth, talk to the food, and you can even get a little romantic with the food. Be creative with the McDonalds food. You don't HAVE to have McDonalds food with you, but it will help get you into this commercial. Also you don't need to eat it either. You don't need to actually love it to pretend you do on camera. The point is to give a homosexual presence in McDonalds.

    3.
    Make the video short. It doesn’t need to be any longer than 30 seconds, and even a 5 second clip will be sufficient. Keep in mind I may only end up using a fraction of your video if any of it. Edit your own videos too. If you do 10 takes and only like 3, then give me those 3 takes. I don't want to look at dozens of takes.

    4.
    Try to stand out. So you can be funny, sexy, angry, outrageously flamboyant, crazy, ultra masculine, hipster, emo, or just over all super freakin' gay. The more distinct you are, the more likely I’ll use you in this commercial. Using props is a plus. Singing and/or rapping is fine too. Rapping actually would be really awesome! If you have good flow or rap something funny, I'll definitely be using it in the commercial. You can even sing off key btw. Remeber: tragic is also hot and funny.

    5.
    Try to use the highest quality you can when shooting the video. If you don’t have high quality don’t worry about it. I’m looking for people who are standing out more than high quality video. Just make sure the room is properly lit.

    6.
    No nudity. No penis. No anus. You can be half naked (male) though and show off your muscles/sexy body if you want. Make sure you're at least wearing something that covers your ass and bulge (I don't want to see an outline of your penis or female-nipples either). If you cuss I’ll just bleep you out. It might be funny to use a bleeped video in this commercial, but I'm not sure. So if you're in doubt, just don't cuss.

    7.
    This is a family commercial because McDonalds is a family restaurant. But feel free to KISS or MAKE OUT or HOLD HANDS or just look REALLY GAY with another person of the same sex. I believe that two people of the same sex can make out in commercials since I see dozens of commercials with two people of the opposite sex doing it all the time. Remember: try to make sure you say you love McDonalds or have McDonalds food present in the video too.

    8.
    If you want to be anonymous, feel free to wear a mask, a wig, sun glasses, etc. so that your identify is not known based on what you look like in the video.

    9.
    By submitting your video to me you agree that I have the right to USE YOUR video in this commercial only. You obtain ownership of your video and you may distribute and do what you want with your video. But I reiterate, once you give it to me you give me permission to use it for this McDonalds commercial. You agree and acknowledge that you are taking part in a positive yet outlandish commercial that is claiming that homosexuals LOVE McDonalds. If you don’t agree with this stance and don’t want to be seen in a video with a bunch of crazy fags, then don’t make the video.

    10.
    You must live in the US or pretend you live in the US. The whole idea is that in the US homosexuals love McDonalds.

    Note: you don’t get paid for this. I’m not making any money off of this either so don't worry. I'm just making it for YouTube. Also, you MAY not end up in this commercial so don't get disappointed if I don't use you.[/size]


    DUE DATE AND WHERE TO SEND
    This is due JUNE 30TH, 2010. After that date I will start editing and making the commercial. So any videos submitted after that probably won't make it

    Where to submit the video. Try to upload it somewhere and then send the link to: jakebensonmusic@gmail.com You can even upload it on YouTube, and I can rip a copy of it. When you email me, state who you are and if you would like to receive credit. If so, give me the name you want to use and what state or U.S. territory you are living in. If you are not living in the US, then lie. For example, you can say, "My name is Jake Benson and I live in Los Angeles," or, "My name is Jake and I live in Kentucky," or even, "My name is Dr. Homo Spice and I live in B.F.E. middle America."

    If you have any questions feel free to ask either here, or PVT message to me on realjock, or at jakebensonmusic@gmail.com. Please no

    Remember:
    Due date: June 30th
    Clip: less than 30 seconds
    Send to: Jakebensonmusic@gmail.com
    Make sure: you are gay and you love McDonalds

    I'll do it only if I can play the role of the closet case homo fast food eating McDonald's lover. (Ugggh) A spotlight only revealing my silhouette and Big Mac, Large fries and soft drink. The Golden arches and a rainbow flag in the background. Exposing my love for both...secretlyicon_twisted.gif

    This sounds great!! Unfortunately, I don;t see my boy until that Friday... Be careful of the legal ramifications of creating a "McDonalds" commercial. I wouldn't want you to get sued over what promises to be an amazing video!

    i think its better that us gays aren't portrayed with fat people who eat mcdonald's.. i think his hating us is a blessing in disguise.

    our lack of acceptance for his chain will make gay loving straights think the establishment unhip and if given the chance theyll choose a wendy's chicken salad over a big mac so they can look all the more hip to the cause.

    Have you ever heard of a concept called satire?

    I got it covered. There's nothing wrong with showing a video of anyone eating McDonalds, saying they love it. Moreover, all my voicework will be facts from news articles, and any claims I make will be towards, not from McDonalds. In other words, I'll say, "Gay people in the US LOVE McDonalds," instead of, "McDonalds in the US LOVES gay people."

    If you show the COO videos of gays & lesbians happily eating McDonald's, what's his incentive to produce gay-themed commercials? Wouldn't he think to himself that McDonald's already has these unnatural freaks as loyal customers anyway, so why bother?

    How about gays eating anything BUT McDonald's, even passing by a McDonald's restaurant on their way to a Burger King, or Wendy's, or other fast-food place? Or is this reverse psychology of some sort?

    Are we supposed to be threatening him with grossly gay behavior, that he might fear will scare off his "natural' customers, when they learn that gays like McDonald's? But who's gonna see this commercial but him? Exposing it publicly might result in legal action.

    So I'm totally confused by this, and why it would produce the response from McDonald's you presumably want -- a more friendly & realistic ad campaign like the French one that targets gays.

    Oh dear.

    (1) why have females, blacks, men or in fact ANYONE in an ad, as it will make people think that these groups are already loyal customers
    (2) the point is that they seem to be embarrassed about gay people eating McDs. The association of the two is "bad PR".

    You clearly don't understand what a satire is.

    Yes, I know most old people are nice, but are also like, "what? I don't understand this cell phone. Why can't I just use my landline?" icon_lol.gif
