This Fake 'Tide to Go' Ad Perfectly Spoofs Lingering Opposition to Gay Marriage Kim Davis would not approve

Tide has already made one commercial featuring a gay couple—it's been airing in Canada, as Procter & Gamble considers bringing it to the U.S.. And now, an ad for Tide to Go about gay marriage has gone viral, garnering over 400,000 views on Facebook.

But the spot is actually spec work from Tiny Giant director Mark Nickelsburg. 



While any spot like this from a major brand would probably do well online right now, this one successfully thwarts the viewer's expectations—gay marriage isn't what's offensive here—and that certainly helps push up the view count. 

P&G did not immediately responded to a request for comment. But it would be smart for Tide to use this excitement to finally roll out its current ad featuring a gay couple in the U.S.
