Snickers pulls plug on Super Bowl smooch ad
Masterfoods kills ad that showed two men 'kissing' after objections by gay rights groups.
February 6 2007: 3:24 PM EST
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- After a number of groups objected, Masterfoods USA, the maker of Snickers candy bars, has pulled the plug on a controversial Super Bowl commercial that showed two men accidentally kissing.
The 30-second commercial featured two mechanics who end up sharing both a Snickers bar and an inadvertent kiss, and then react by pulling out a clump of chest hair to "do something manly."
Groups such as the Human Right Campaign and the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) condemned the ad, saying it promoted anti-gay prejudice and condoned violence against gay Americans.
"That Snickers, Mars and the NFL would promote and endorse this kind of prejudice is simply inexcusable," GLAAD President Neil Giuliano said in a statement.
...
Viewers were supposed to be able to go to www.SnickersSatisfies.com or www.afterthekiss.com Web sites to view the alternate endings and vote on their favorite which would air later this month. Visitors to the site are now redirected to the Snickers' home page.
Masterfoods, which has discontinued the ad campaign, said the intent of the ad was not to offend, and noted that feedback from its target audience had been positive.
"We know that humor is highly subjective and understand that some people may have found the ad offensive. Clearly that was not our intent," Masterfoods said in a statement. "As with all of our Snickers advertising, our goal was to capture the attention of our core Snickers consumer."

People need to chill the f*ck out. I saw that pig Rosie O'Donnell bitching about this ad. Anything that she is opposed to is okay with me.

People are too damn uptight today.

There are groups questioning if Princes halftime show was too racy "because of how phallic his guitar was". I want people to watch shows on kids dying of AIDs in Kenya, and then remind themselves that we're watching a game.

All humor except puns "hurts" someone. That's the nature of funny stuff. In that ad, we were laughing at the two goons who were so afraid of kissing each other that they felt the need to hurt themselves to make up for it.

In other words, we were LAUGHING AT the homophobes.

There are a lot of offensive things in this world. As a woman I could be offended by all the women in the ads for housecleaning products. What are these advertisers saying? That cleaning is women's work? Well, yes. That's exactly what they're saying. But they are appealing to their core audience. I can respect that. Snickers is no different.

Leave the gov't out of this. If Snickers wants to voluntarily pull their ad because of a grassroots campaign, that's their choice. Choice isn't a bad thing. Choice is freedom.

But I'd counter the anti-Snickers ad with a campaign of my own to get them to put the ad back up if I actually cared enough to do so. Leave the gov't out of it.
