Find the Right 'Gay' Noodle for You: VIDEO


Barilla's assertion that it did not want gays in its pasta ads has thankfully been a springboard for creative and equality-minded filmmakers to set the wheels turning and this 'gay' pasta ad comes from the folks at the dating app MISTER.

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

Incidentally, Towleroad has been nominated in their iamMISTER awards. Thanks guys!

  1. I'm a definite ass man, and I resent the pixelation.

  2. I resent the censorship of pixelation too. Even Huffington Post linked to an uncensored Vimeo. Please always try to find an unexpurgated version!

  3. "That's Amore"

    (In Napoli where love is king
    When boy meets boy and girl meets girl... here's what they say)....

    When the moon hits you eye like a big pizza pie
    That's amore
    When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine
    That's amore'
    Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
    And you'll sing "Vita bella"
    Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
    Like a gay tarantella

    When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool
    That's amore
    When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
    You're in love
    When you walk down in a dream but you know you're not
    Dreaming signore
    Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Napoli
    That's amore

  4. It was pixelated to call attention to it and make you think there was a butt plug showing. Think of the pastabilities.

  5. Every gay couple should have a hunky and naked houseboy to make them a romantic dinner.

    "Naked Houseboys, not just for Palm Springs any more...."

  6. Too bad for Barilla's employees. They are a victim of their leader's hate and the employees that are gay are likely oppressed by this idiot's attitude.
