Leslie Jordan Goes Bold in Gay Super Bowl Ad Touchdown Attempt: VIDEO


Surely this will be a contender for this year's Super Bowl Doritos ad .

Written and produced by Gary and Larry Lane (the gay twins who appear at the beginning) and featuring Tim Pocock from CAMP, and male supermodels Joel Rush and Nick Ayler.

  1. I'm afraid the humor would probably be lost on the Super Bowl demographic... maybe save it for the Oscars.

  2. Does everyone hear that distant clacking? OMM is already clutching their pearls in indignation. Personally, I think it's tacky as Hell.

  3. Leslie Jordan is great, but the director was a bit over the top. It would have been funnier had the director not outgayed LJ.

  5. Okay, but I'm getting pretty tired of the obligatory "Step-an'-fetch-it" queeny personae vs "strapping hunks" meme. We're way beyond that...I hope.

  6. I love him but that was terrible.

  7. Leslie Jordan is a treasure.

    Trust me, that's no persona. That's who he is, and it's wonderful to see him embrace it. And share it.

  8. Like him, but the pacing/timing of the commercial didn't allow the comedic "pop" I was hoping for. Nice eye candy though.

  9. Pretty cheesy.

  10. Cute, but they need to go 'bolder' to make it really funny.

  11. I agree with all the comments. This is a throw back to a stereotype that does our community no favors. Hardly bold, this is the worse kind pandering to homophobia.

  12. @TRH;


    Perhaps also a bit cool ranch?

  13. That's just what we need, more fuel to the fire of homophobia. More perpetuation of the stereotypes.

  14. Wow, that was one of the worst commercials I have ever seen. As if no thought went into it at all. Who came up with this? The writers at SNL? #lame

  15. Leslie Jordan is a wonderful comic actor (and very good playwright).

    It was funny.

  17. Why is this the face that we're willing to show the world? What year is this? 1990?

  18. it was funny! shut up the rest of you!

  19. Oooh, 2900 moms ain't gonna like this.

    I love that people on this site get so worked up over flamboyant gay men. I think Leslie Jordan is hysterical and this is exactly how he is so, all you femme haters-STFU!

  20. NF. Not Funny.

  21. Well, I loved it. To each his own, right?

  23. Super Lame.

    Posted by: Jon | Dec 6, 2013 11:50:28 PM

  24. I hate to pile on but do we REALLY need another "queenie gay guy" pandering? I mean, in all seriousness?

    Posted by: Marty | Dec 7, 2013 1:25:50 AM

  25. Leslie Jordan is a gay icon. Love him.
