I heard people say on NPR that the ad is not funny or that it is stupid. I think it is no more stupid than any act of comedy by Charlie Chaplin or other physical comedians. People who generally enjoy a belly laugh watching slapstick will enjoy watching men pulling chest hair out given the situation. Just because I enjoyed the commercial does not mean that I would go as far as to pull my hair out if I accidentally kissed another man, I may spit, but that would be the extent of my repulsion. I fail to understand why the gay community would be up in arms over an ad, which is obviously exaggerated and is meant to generate laughs and nothing else. It is a fact of life that most heterosexual men would feel repulsed by the idea of kissing another, the feeling of repulsion is biological, just like homosexuality is biological, so if gays expect non-gays to be accommodating, they have to reciprocate. I would agree that the ad is not polite, but then polite is not funny.
