Not so funny, sort of strange and very confusing, actually, is McDonald’s new ad campaign in France targeting gay men. According to the Telegraph article “McDonald’s releases gay advert”, a gay teen and his father are in a McDonald’s and the not-so-subtle hints that the teen is gay and the father is unaware are throughout the entire ad. What any of this has to do with eating burgers and fries is beyond me.
