The obvious question seems to be, why offer anyone a Snickers to get them to stop being Aretha or Liza?
My theory is that this is the ad Snickers is using to make up to us after the “Super Bowl Homophobic Kiss” debacle of a few years ago.

So, Snickers will de-fag you? What is up with Snickers and homophobia????
Super Bowl 2008:

Christ, you guys are sensitive. This is a silly ad mocking divas. It’s quick and funny.
February 10, 2010 at 6:07 pm
It also goes with the same theme as their SuperBowl ad this year with Betty White and Abe Vigoda. I would imagine we’re going to see a lot more celebs eating Snickers.
notshychirev and Henry…have a snicker
I dont see the anti-gay here…it is anti-Diva behavior.

It’s a cute ad. I doubt Liza would ever appear in something that she thought was homophobic.
February 10, 2010 at 6:39 pm
Which says a lot given her marriage to david gest. That’d make me homophobic.
Love Aretha–especially how she dresses.
David C. says
Anti gay? Maybe. Misogynistic? Yes. Eat a Snickers to get the bitch out of your system. Cute. Maybe. Misogynistic. Still yes.

This campaign is a million times better than their “Snickers Speak” campaign.
“Take Night Classes at Chewniversity”
Seriously? Someone got paid to write that?

cheesy but come on! youve got liza and aretha together. dear god.
its cute i guess.

Snickers is made by M&M Mars which is a company that has a long history of being non-gay friendly. Stick with Hershey.
See…everyone feel for it. Maybe they should rename the candy bar Suckers instead of Snickers.
February 10, 2010 at 7:14 pm
Oh, you poor sensitive children.
What a hilarious commercial!!
February 10, 2010 at 7:17 pm
I love it.
But then I can’t say anything critical about them since they made me President.
February 10, 2010 at 7:24 pm
But honestly, gay men largely (yes, there are fat lots amongst us…but it’s not a disease, to quote ricky gervais) aren’t the demographic for snickers…it’s mooby food.
February 10, 2010 at 7:26 pm
So what do you do if you WANT to turn a guy into a diva? Shove a Snickers up his ass?
February 10, 2010 at 8:08 pm
It would have been funnier if the had used that snickers with a Z line. haha
February 10, 2010 at 10:19 pm
Tank: Only David Gest? Liza was with Peter Allen back in the days when her mother was still marrying teh Gays.
February 10, 2010 at 11:56 pm
omg, Liza and Aretha together and they couldn’t sing?? meh. Great Ad.
February 11, 2010 at 12:17 am
That was awesome. So cute.

Fun and clever….and now, I’m actually going to go eat a Snickers bar! Really, truly Terrific! As Liza would say!

Do straight guys even get it?
February 11, 2010 at 1:56 am
Lighten up! That was really fun!

Liza is an old hag who can’t move a muscle over her top lip. These geezers should hang it up!
February 11, 2010 at 8:15 am
Super-cute ad, but then I’m a gay guy who’s old enough to know who Liza Minnelli and Aretha Franklin are. How many twentysomething’s will see this ad and wonder who the hell those women are? They’ll probably conclude that “diva” is just another word for “heavyset black woman” or “plastic surgery victim.”
February 11, 2010 at 8:54 am
This is terrific and FUN.
Good for Snickers.
February 11, 2010 at 8:58 am
Guys don’t get me wrong. I don’t see it as anti-gay either. I said “make up”…I view it as a nudge nudge wink wink to the gay community and think it’s as cute as can be.

Wow, the first couple of people have some chips on their shoulders – maybe they could do a Frit-o-lay add. Aretha was actually funny in this! Liza was cute also.
All these comments about, “twenty somethings won’t know who they are” need to realize that Lady GaGa doesn’t have to be directly associated with every product in order for you to realize the product. Does a house need to fall on your head, or do we need to go back to The Wizard of Oz with Judy Garland, go ahead I’ll give you time to look that up on Widepickia, for you to get the concept of said house falling on your head.
February 11, 2010 at 12:33 pm
Clearly that is Liza Minelli but for a second I thought it was Mario Cantone in drag. Striking resemblance.
February 13, 2010 at 9:01 pm
The Aretha guy and the driver are super cute.
Does anyone know who they are?
