Don't Ask, Don't Deli
For the record, the following Deli Mayo advertisement is not offensive. It's clever. It's charming. It even makes us consider purchasing some new condiments. But Heinz yanked it out of the airwaves after an innocuous man-man peck on the lips offended some very, very stupid people.
This knee-jerk homophobia sure takes us back. Just after the release of GOOD 002, we caught surprising amounts of flak—and at least two subscription cancellations—for running a certain Marc Jacobs ad (above). Our guess is that no one would have complained if they were fighting.
