Bud tells Gays OK to be Gay.

Chad: Just be yourself, man.
Ricky: What, you mean Gay?
Chad: Well yeah, we’re in a Gay ad in a Gay magazine.
Ricky: Oh. OK. But, can we move away from this big honking sweaty phallic symbol?
Chad: Apparently not. Nice tat, though.
Ricky: Thanks.

Ranter, just aimlessly perusing Metro Source magazine like usual? Had some free time and decided to chilly chill with a crazy gay mag in hand? Not that there's anything wrong with that.

If you've got a sec, let me know how much for a year's subscription.

Chad: Did you tear those sleeves yourself?

Ricky: Yeah... it was a hell of a work out.

Chad: Looks like it. Good thing you're chilling your balls with an icy Bud

Oh, that ad's been around for a while in Instinct and other gay mags. (You should see some of the other ads! I'd scan some for you, but I don't have a scanner.) And Bud Light's been targeting the gay demographic for even longer; they sponsor lots of Prides and stuff, I believe. When you've got the Coors family giving money to anti-gay groups, and you're their main competitor, why not run with it? Plus, we all know us gays look after our figures (well, *I* don't, but then I haven't had a date in two years), so we're natural "prey" for a light beer.

BTW, I'd never noticed the phallicity of the beer bottle. What would I do without you, ranter?

I sort of miss the days when we weren't a "demographic." But now we're being pursued by cologne makers, malt liquor brewers, and the garment district to the point that a subset of straight men have taken to outdoing us (and I wouldn't have imagined that possible).

So I feel a bit out of place in this strange new world, and I probably won't get up to speed until someone launches a remedial effort of some sort...

"Metro Eye for the Queer Guy," anyone?

It's not exactly the most subtle ad I have ever seen.
