Is This Budweiser Ad Gay?

Some wonder about soldier's story

Some folks think this military-themed Budweiser commercial has a gay vibe, which would put it at odds with most of the brewer's lunk-headedly hetero mass-media advertising. It seems unlikely that any subtle gay subtext was intended. Still, the 60-second spot, from ad agency Anomaly, is open to interpretation. The enlisted guy's homecoming story does focus rather heavily on his clearly close yet undefined relationship with another dude back in the States.
