Another dreary pro-gay marriage campaign. Justin Long is a cutie, though.

He is dreamy. They shoulda paired him up with Keanu or someone slightly hotter than the one who plays the hubby.

Depressing vision.
Im so stupid. By the middle of the story, I forgot that they got married in the beginning.

(The whole thing looks realistic enough even if there wasn't a wedding so it kinda backfires on me.  The message to me is - hey, wake up MARYS, did you really want to turn into a married couple, look whats happened to you!  -- so its snarky to gays in LTRs)

Since the message is to gay haters, note the video is snarky about the supposed "average" hetero marriage. 

Do haters even know that gay couples end up no different from anyone else?  Do they think it is Gaga fantastic forever and we dont age?

Justin Long's hubby in the video is director, screenwriter, and actor Mike White, who is bisexual.  His father is gay activist Mel White, a minister who was a former speechwriter and ghostwriter for Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, and Billy Graham.  Mel White came out in 1994 and transferred his ministerial credentials to the gay-supportive Metropolitan Community Church.  Mel is the founder of Soulforce, a national social-justice organization that works to end the political and religious oppression of LGBT people.

Mike and Mel were recently a competitive team on the long-running TV show "The Amazing Race," on which they lasted for seven legs.

Well on further reflection, so the message to fag haters is "Vote for gay marriage, make them get married and this will punish them cause they will end up sad sacks just like you."   

OK i get it.  Nothing like Hollywood negativity.

I think the video is hilarious however.  Reminds me of Modern Family.

A positive "tag line" could have simply been something like "married gays - just like everyone else"  -
see? then everyone is in on the riffing about mundane domestic life.   The whole video and message becomes positive. (black comedy)

I believe Mel was interviewed fairly extensively for the documentary "For The Bible Tells Me So" (which is something everyone here should watch by the way).

MTD dear, dear damned that is,
I'm not SWISS!  Born and raised in the USA.  Told you before but you always forget  ;D
I've got 2 other passports and none of them Swiss.

Maybe I'll become Swiss however. Why not. The Swiss are paying to keep me alive and with very little hassle about that, to boot.

There are some hilarious Swiss comedians -  Marie-Therese Porchet is a huge star in Francophonie :)
Higly recommended - a good lecon (in French) about Swiss cultural diversity.

I think there are some Swiss members but not all that active.

Anyhoo, I got all embarrassed when the couple went down the tube in the video.  When the kill joy says "you're not going out tonight", and then the final scene. Tragic. tragic tragic tragic.

coming up next on aidsmeds.com: mecch over-intellectualises Justin Long's transgression of the homosexual semiotic space and juxtaposes it against the heterosexual hegemonic view of marriage.   Expect tons of fun.
