UK based Gay Times recently put a call out for agencies/addies to produce campaign materials that promote homosexuality to straight men. Well, we’re (a) straight men, so let’s see how they did, after the jump.
(Ed’s note: the above spot is well overdue (Wanda Sykes sticks it to a bunch of teenage dudes who are calling things, “so gay”) — better late than never. Know anyone that still says, ‘that’s so gay’? Tell us about him/her in comments or by e-mail to matt@mediabistro dot com or superspyin@gmail dot com).
And click continued to see the work that was done for GT and our take on it. (Sourced from Creative Review)
First up is the above piece by University of Leeds students James and Joe. Uh, the imagery is a bit gross but, admittedly, less gross than it could have been. How’d they do? Well guys, vaginas don’t have teeth, which is a pretty big flaw in your argument. Just the same, we see your point. Well played.
Next up is this celeb-u-whore piece by The King’s Arms Creative of Manchester. Yeah, all the celebs in this poster look pretty friggin’ whacked out. And yes, avoiding “the crazy” may be a good reason to “go gay”. Indeed. But what Kings are forgetting is that even at their worst, women will never lose their ability to out-sexify men. Maybe not in every case, like that post-op who’s been in the news lately, but you know what we mean.
Well, as fun as joining the “Gavy” sounds, we’re not keen on the penis-wrapped anchor. Ouch!
