2_halebop

A new ad from the Swedish mobile carrier Halebop, which is geared at a youth market, features a pro-gay locker room confrontation.

Translation:

Guy 1: "Miss you, Theo Ekenborg [name of a guy]"
Guy 1: "Who's that?"
Guy 2: "It's …"
Guy 2: "It's my boyfriend."
Guy 2: "We're celebrating our … one year anniversary"
Guy 1: "Congrats! One year, that's not easy"

In the end you hear another guy in the background saying "I know who it is. He's damn good looking"

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  6. That's WAY too progressive and cutting edge for America. But we'll eventually catch up to Sweden in another 20 years or so, maybe.

  8. thank you! Open up as the songs says at the end, indeed! It may just be optimism with all the SCOTUS stuff last week and the coming of spring. But after all the bullying stories and deaths that are so important but so sad these last few years, there seems to be a lot of positivity for a more accepting future. My hope is bolstered.

  14. Just think, their ancestors were the fierce Norsemen who terrorized much of Europe for several centuries. In an Irish prayer book dated around 900 is the prayer: "From the fury of the Northmen, Oh Lord deliver us." Now the descendants of the fierce Northmen are all warm and fuzzy and leading the way to a more humane and tolerant world.
