Gay/Straight Adwatch: No Go, Girlfriend

A step beyond the GBF...



Ever happen to you, GG? Readers?

Interesting product tie-in. Jim Beam is pretty straight, right?

FYI: This is Jenny Slate, who looks likely to be joining SNL this fall.

HILARIOUS.

But, what does it have to do with Jim Beam?

I second GG - nicely played, interesting script, clueless about the product. Oh wait, bourbon is delicious and it gets me high - I need to stop at the liquor store tomorrow. But I didn't learn that from the commercial.

Okaaaaay. I'm a Knob Creek fan myself....but still not getting the connection. Maybe it's just to state the obvious? That a gay male will not be having sexual relations with a straight (albeit clueless) female??

The only thing I don't like about the video is why is HE folding HER laundry? Is there some sort of implied idea that he really just wants to try it on?

I took the JB connection to simply mean: if there's someone in your life like this "girlfriend", then you need a strong drink.

As for the laundry, I think it was just a visual proof-point, not really implying servitude. That retail-style flick-fold is definitely not straight. IF a straight guy folds at all (this one anyway), it has a big honking crease right down the middle.
