All that stink over THIS?!
Check out this promotional video for Toronto Pride created by Tourism Toronto in partnership with the event, which parodies the P90X with 'Pride Pump 2000x' (above), and has gotten some people's panties in a serious knot because of its use of gay stereotypes!
According to Toronto Life:
"…we can’t help but wonder how out of touch (or straight?) the person who cooked up Pride Toronto’s painful-to-watch and setting-back-the-movement promotional video was. If gay activism is on the rise, how will the community be taken seriously if the organization that fronts the city’s largest gay celebration backs these old-hat, shouldn’t-be jokes? If they were looking to shoot fish in a barrel, why didn’t the Pride committee just hire Big Gay Al?"
Personally, we don't see the big deal!
It's just campy, silly, and FUN! Not mean-spirited!
Loosen up, people!
It's just poking a little fun!
What do U think?? Is this promo video out of line?
