GAY LUBE COMMERCIAL ‘BANNED FROM AIRING’ DURING RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE
If you can’t watch a male lubrication ad during RuPaul’s Drag Race, when can you? We officially have our first casualty of the long-running drag competition moving from Logo to its more mainstream sister network, VH1. Boy Butter founder Eyal Feldman claims Comcast banned the commercial in Chicago for being too gay.
“I learned that my brand new Boy Butter commercial, currently airing on this season of RuPaul’s Drag Race on VH1 in NYC, LA, San Diego and nationwide on Canada’s OutTV was banned from airing on cable TV in Chicago. According to Comcast TV in the so-called liberal windy city of Chicago, [they]did not think viewers could handle the level of gayness in this ad starring sexy ginger, Seth Fornea, who is showing us all how to properly use a butter churn. One would think that in the Midwest the sight of a butter churn would bring back nostalgic feelings of nearby dairy farms, but alas, if a gay man is churning that butter, not so much.” – Feldman posted on the company’s blog.
The advert in question, directed by Daniel Robinson, features former porn star Seth Fornea vigorously churning butter while serving up some intense ginger sexiness. As Feldman also writes in his blog, it’s no sexier than Carl’s Junior’s ads. The only difference is, a gay man is featured instead of busty women.
Seriously, who’s going to get offended watching this ad while enjoying RPDR? The reality show features far more potentially offensive things during each episode than this gorgeous apron-clad man. Don’t you agree? Watch the ‘controversial’ clip below.
