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

  2. LMAO!

    In the world of 'slash' fan-fiction there are those that are 'furry' fans too... in fact I know a few and will be cross-posting this for them on my LJ... I know they'll get a kick out of it.

    As for Orangina... mmm, mmm, good! Now, loving it even more.

    However, with that said, I can understand some of the posts concerned with the message to the 'haters' out there... even though I like the commercial... I know that a majority of humans aren't ready for such fantasy [yet will accept glittering vampires and werewolves].

    BUT... does that mean we should kow-tow to the 'haters', because truly, they 'believe' what they believe already, regardless if it were to air or not.

    My ONLY issue with the commercial? That anyone with fur would want something as sticky as orangina sittin' for any length of time on their skin...

    Unless of course his 'mate' plans on licking it off *insert shit-eaten-grin here*

  5. The thing so disturbing about this commercial is not gay bestiality insinuation but Orangina being used as an aftershave. WTF?

  6. For those who want to yell "bestiality," please notice that the puma/cougar is way too human-shaped, except for its head. A bit like the ancient egyptian gods. Is there a word for having sex with a god?

  7. David's comments are judgmental.

  8. *facepalm*

    Oh let them hew and cry "BEASTIALITY!!!" over this advert.

    They will only look more absurd for doing so.

    God help us if aliens ever land on this planet and want to fool around. Half us would probably say "Sure" the other half would try to burn us for it.

  9. Has anyone clued in to the fact that it's a female lion? Why does that make it gay? Idiots!

  10. Here are more pics of Matt Maggiacomo, the model in the ad. According to this website, he's "an on-air personality for OursceneTV" which is aimed at gay/lesbian men and women. You'll have to cut and paste this link into your browser.

  11. Kacey - it's not a lion; it's a cougar. Cougars don't have manes. Besides, as Chuck Miekle pointed out, the cougar is given a very human body. That human body is masculine, not feminine (no breasts).

    Of course it's not about bestiality. But it has a gay theme, and that's not surprising since the male model is gay and out.
