Watch: Orangina's French Gay Cougar Ad


Orangina has produced an ad for France that features a buff young man, and (literally) a cou-gay.

French site Yagg writes

"Famous for its original advertisements, the beverage Orangina has included an insinuating gay commercial in their newest ad campaign. However, the video has been judged 'too polemic' and therefore, according to the NoSite Agency, won’t be shown on television. The ad forms part of a campaign that features different human-like animals using Orangina for unusual satiric purposes, such as mopping the floor, fighting bad breath or hair conditioning...NoSite Agency (online strategy counseling and PR), in charge of buzzing this campaign, has drawn our attention to a new video, where the beverage is used as an after-shave by a muscled puma in front of his mirror. Nothing particularly gay until the closing scene, where the puma’s well-shaved pelt is caressed by his… male friend

  4. Sooo...
    Furries, bestiality and homosexuality?

    I can see why it won't be aired, probably a good thing.

    It's fun and all but we don't wanna send the wrong message do we now?

  5. Personally, I don't find it hot at all but rather disturbing. And I am glad it won't run. We don't need being gay and sex with animals lumped together!

  6. I've always liked the bottle more than the drink.

  7. I can't decide what's worse about this ad: the terrible and creepy special effects or the recommendation to use carbonated orange juice as an aftershave.

  8. I'm with Rann, this is disturbing. The picture alone equates homosexuality with animal sex and plays right into the hands of conservatives.

    If you think this is eroitc, then you're messed up.

  9. oh get a life stop reading to things that aren't there. just accept it for what is a commerercial trying to sell something. why does everything have to have a deep hidden meaning. this no different than anshving cream commercial where the girl admires the smooth shave excepts a guy. how many times do ads run telling you to release the beast inside.

  10. WTF?

  11. oh God, some of you are completely incapable of thinking about anything outside of a political context.

    I thought it was adorable and cute. It made me smile.

    That's normal. Immediately crying "Bestiality!!! OMG!" is not normal, and betrays more of your own personal inclinations than it accurately labels this mere advertisement.

    Calm down, folks. Geez...

  12. The guy is very pretty, and imagine him speaking French to you. OMG. I've always agreed with the French that they have developed the mankind's supreme culture, but what happened at the World Cup?

  13. Too Bad Orangina executives are too winpy to run this funny ad. It's just cute absurd and cartoonesque. Both characters are very well put together and whatever looks gay in it just seems hot and attractive. Actually a good pro-gay commercial paid for by a for profit corporation. Too bad France is run by a bunch of corrupt pandering conservative: France should have been among the first countries to enact same-sex marriage. Instead it has been left in the dust by a dozen countries, even South-Africa! which reminds us of something....Oh yes South-Africa eliminated France from the World Cup: They should ditch Sarkozy, he is good at nothing.

  14. Great sexy fun. As for the people worried about charges of bestiality - WTF?! That is on the same page of literalness as the law firm for the Pork Board that sent a cease and desist letter to ThinkGeek about their joke ad for Unicorn Meat being "another white meat." No imagination, no sense of humor, and confusing fantasy with reality. They had to be told that unicorns don't exist, hence unicorn meat doesn't either. Newsflash: that is not a representation of a real animal!

  15. Really? This is dumber that f*ck.

  16. What about pepsi? this is all kindsa ritahded.

  17. oh yes David --- btw --- you are an idiot :)

    Does Twilight and it's werewolf equate being straight with animal sex ?

    stop being afraid

  18. The people whining about this being icky and weird are doing more to show their own sexual issues than anything else. I just looked at it as a typical french ad - absurd, inscrutable yet somewhat alluring (come on, the non CGI actor is fucking hot!).

    And no, I'm not into furries or bestiality. Pretty damn sure on that.

    Posted by: Dan | Jun 24, 2010 2:52:45 PM

  19. Too polemic? What the hell does that mean?

    Posted by: charley | Jun 24, 2010 3:04:30 PM

  20. Funny though very european. That hottie is Matt Maggiacomo. Yum

  21. You've got to take this ad in the context of the series of ads: animals doing wacky things with Orangina. You may not get the brand of off-beat humor, but this ad is just one of several of these wacky commercials. Why shouldn't one of them have a gay subtext. And in context, this isn't about bestiality--the animals are playing humans. You may think that's weird, but it it is done in cartoons every day.Kids roll with it--so should we.

  22. GLAAD should be all over this as it could insinuate gay/bestiality. The gay community's image is still fragile.

  23. We don't need being gay and sex with animals lumped together!

    I like to think I'm kind of an animal in the sack, and I know my buddy does. Lighten up, dudes!

  24. I like to see a lot more of that gorgeous young guy.

    Posted by: jaragon | Jun 24, 2010 5:55:04 PM

  25. Two things:

    1) If the caress had come from a female human, the ad would have aired.

    2) The automatic link of gay=beastiality is a peculiarly American mental problem.

    Yes, the Pope tries to make the same point, but the French don't see the connection the way America does.
