Anyone looking for love and marriage will relate to this moving video

  • Chrismas

    It’s not moving, it’s poorly acted and “stars” a bunch of perfectly sculpted Adonis’s who, whilst I’m sure are all lovely people, don’t represent the population as the media keep trying to have us all believe. I think the more moving videos are the REAL ones, like that guy who proposed in a flash mob. I hate the subtext of videos like this. #my2cents

      Spot on, Chrismas!

    • Cal

      Gosh, I hope you never watch a Hollywood movie. You would disapprove.

      • Chrismas

        I probably wouldn’t. It’s context. If you take a film like Magic Mike for example, which is designed to be absolute gutter trash, but a brilliant chance to get a cheap boner from some gorgeous guys, then it’s fine and fun – as that’s what it’s INTENDED to be. This video is supposed to be sending a serious message and, I assume, to relate to a specific audience; to give a message of hope to those who are going through the trials and tribulations of an uncaring, Grindr obsessed, homophobic world. But it fails, in part because everyone in it is an Abercrombie model which disengages an audience. x

          If you think Soderbergh’s Magic Mike was intended as ‘absolute gutter trash’ I’m afraid your perceptions are in serious need of tuning.

          No heterosexual is obsessed with Grindr, it’s just that gay men use it -A LOT. Why because they are male-and men, regardless of sexuality, are more out for easy sex. That’s not to say that gay men cannot love one another -of course they can- but all this aping of heterosexual rituals (marriage proposals, coy glances, ‘will he, won’t he’ type stuff) makes me want to vomit.

        • Cal

          If you think the film would be more effective and realistic if it featured 2 fat old bears, that’s your preference. Some Gay men are very good looking and many dress fashionably. This may be a cliche but it is true. Your comments about Magic Mike show a judge mental intolerance.
          Was Black Narcissus trash because the nuns were beautiful? How about Who’s Afraid Of Viginia Woolf? Starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton? Trash, obviously.

        • Richard

          I’ve got to agree with you. It just said to me “pretty people have problems too”. I long to see some authentic real gay men and lesbians. HIV advertising has the same problem. They always use pretty people, never just ordinary individuals. Hell, even the bears are sculpted to an inch of their lives. Everything is just too casted these days.

    • Rehan

      Where did it say it was aiming to represent ‘the population’?

      That flash mob proposal might have been ‘real’ but it had just as many disturbing connotations in relation to contemporary partnership rituals (why, with two presumably equal men, should one need to propose – “win” – the other?).

      • bermeir

        Because, had people actually listened to anti-same sex marriage protestors instead of automatically calling them bigots, they’d have realised that marriage is based upon heterosexual notions of love and commitment and that it was THIS that made ssm so unattractive and not homophobia.
        Never mind, it’s (gay marriage) is here: don’t complain, supporters of ssm wanted to have their relationships fit into a heterosexual framework: live with it and don’t expect to visit those grubby saunas again.

    Awwww!! I loved it. It’s so cute and the songs lovely!! Far from reality I know but, I can dream lol.

  • Cal

    That’s pretty damn gorgeous.

  • Steven Gregory

    GAG!
    Woe is me, everybody just wants me for sex and not romance, even though I ring up handsome guys on Grinder and drag home hunks from bars — two places I was sure Mr. Right would be looking for a meaningful connection — it doesn’t matter how widely I open my muscular legs, they just slip through.
    How will I ever find a hardbody to fulfill all the most fashionable aspects of modern gay life?
    Next episode: Adoption and familial reconciliation around the precious angel.
    How about two good-natured guys who are active in their communities and who have more in common than “awesome ab workouts?” They meet over shared passion and purpose, and then realize they admire one another’s drive to make their corner of the world kinder and less fractured?… and maybe one or both is average looking.
    I guess i need to stop eye-rolling and make my own dang little film.

    • Rehan

      I guess i need to stop eye-rolling and make my own dang little film

      Yes.

      • Steven Gregory

        F-cough

        • Jake28

          You two guys are hilarious…I just came across this article…good way to start the day…and have to agree with Rehan on this one.

          • Steven Gregory

            You and Rehan have a good time, he’s a notorious troll/time-water on these forums.

          • Jake28

            Actually Steve Rehan and I don’t usually agree…nor do I particularly like the clip but it is just a short video shown at the Sydney Mardi Gras so I don’t take it seriously…hope tomorrow is a better day for you.

    clearly the video is very commercial and has none of that useless ‘average bodies and looks’ stuff.

    commercially artistic script revolves around pretty face looking for true love in night clubs and on grindr, throwing a pretty face tantrum when, predictably, true love doesn’t materialise. however the pretty face is resilient and doesn’t give up easily. in the final act of desperation in his quest for that elusive true love the pretty face resorts to cruising spot and to pretty face’s big surprise, his efforts are rewarded with ‘happily ever after’.
