  1. how long do you think it will be before the religious freaks start screaming about boycotting Ray-ban?

    Nice advert though

  2. I’ll give it a couple of days before onemillionmoms try to start a boycott!

    1. With every mention of One Million Moms, I think of Ellen DeGeneres’ comment: One Million Moms has about 6000 members on Facebook. I guess they round up.

    and i bet Ray-Ban are quaking at the thought of being boycotted by these people who probably never buy their product anyway.

  4. It was said that gay sports personalities shouldn’t come out because of sponsorship fears. Well, this proves otherwise!

  5. Way to go Ray-Ban! I knew I liked their stuff for a reason lol :P

    I wonder how long it’s going to be before homophobes start a ban/blacklist/campaign/petition against them.

    Rather a dorky couple, methinks. They look like Republicans to me.

      To me they are a couple of well-dressed gentlemen. Gay men are known to take their appearance seriously.

    2. It seems to suggest the early 1950s, I think looking ‘Republican’ was pretty much par for the course then!

      This from the man who dresses like an insurance salesman… let’s see you in a muscle shirt so we can compare.

    The photography was by Mark Seliger in the style of Herb Ritts. A really good ad campaign.

    Thumbs up to Ray-Ban, say no to Gay-Ban!

  9. *counting for butt hurt bible thumper’s boycott cries in…3 ..2…..1*

  10. This is great. But there are times, when I see stuff like this, that gay women get forgotten about as if the only gay people are gay men! There was an add from abroad as I remember and it featured gay men. No gay women to be seen :(
