McDonald’s airing gay-themed ad in France: ‘Come as you are’

LGBTQ Nation

McDonald’s is running a new ad on French TV that features a gay teen and his father, who is unaware of his son’s orientation.

The ad shows a gay teen seated at a McDonald’s table, talking to his boyfriend on his cell phone. He hangs up when he sees his father coming.

The father, unaware of his son’s sexual orientation, proceeds to joke about the son’s all-male class at school. “It’s a shame you’re in an all boys college. You would have had all the girls chasing you.”

The gay son only smiles as they begin eating their food. Watch here:

The commercial, part of McDonald’s “Come as you are” campaign, is intended to show that it welcomes people from all walks of life.
