Did France Ban This Orangina Ad Because It’s Homosexual Or Zoosexual?

First the gay McDonald’s ad and now this homoerotic gem from Orangina, the refreshing drink with the genital-sounding name. The ad agency created TV spots with anthropomorphized creatures using the drink to mop floors, remove pimples, and condition their hair. The NoSite Agency (online strategy counseling and PR) group) calls the ad “too polemic”, and so it won’t be shown on television.

But it doesn’t seem as controversial as it does confusing. Yeah irony is funny or whatever, but who markets soft drinks like aftershave? And why do I feel so turned on yet frightened thinking about the Puma and the man making out?

    Wrong on every level. And really creepy too…do what the hell you want, with anyone you want so long as they are human and can give consent but let’s nip this furry bullshit in the bud before it takes over (there are way too many people into this and they just seem to be increasing in number, at least judging by what goes on in places like Xtube.) Animals can’t given consent so it’s wrong, end of story.

    Not into furries. Wouldn’t say this is a gay issue as that beast isn’t real anyway.

  • tapoh

    I don’t get it. >_<

  • DR (the real one, not the guy who made post #12)

    just a bad ad, all around. even the general concept of the entire campaign seems off.

  • Lucius vorenus

    It is too bizarre. I gave a nervous laugh when I watched it.

    Why don’t they just put two gorgeous human models making out and drinking the damned thing?

    Lions have B.O.? Who knew.

  • Ogre Magi

    @Michael: Lions stink really BAD. One time when I was a kid I was at the mall walking behind a man and woman and I noticed a bad odor.I thought they had B.O. and didn’t think anything about it. As I walked closer to them the smell got really horrible and I thought to myself “Damn! They must have shit there britches” then I got to the center of the mall and noticed cages. A lion tamer was there with his cats putting on a show. I stayed to watch the show, but boy did those big kitties STINK!

    What’s with dishing this ad? Did you really think the “B” in LGBT stands for Bi? Hell no!!! Give me a “B” for Bestiality!!! It’s about time ads for those of us with unique needs are created. Although, I’m into Black Panthers myself.

    We are part of the gay community – because no one else will have us – and we demand to be nurtured and and supported just like the L G T s!

    Some of you are almost there with your love of fur and your piggy ways!

    Think you know doggy?? You don’t know doggy!!!!


  • Toby

    Why did the cat put Orangina on his face?

  • MaxH

    The human dude is totally hot, but this commercial is all kinds of messed up, LOL.

    What on EARTH were they thinking when they made it?

  • Hilarious

    I can’t believe some angry furry bothered to thumb down any comment that was even a little “negative”. Ha!


    I’m sorry…I can’t….

  • BigGayAL

    As much as I would love to see something like this on TV (furry here, and no I didn’t vote down any comments), I just don’t see why they would make an ad like this. It just doesn’t appeal to anyone besides a very specific group.

    And how does him using Orangina like an aftershave suggest that I should drink it?


    Only reinforces what I have known since I was 3……..I am definatley not into pussy………… :-p

  • Ponyboy

    It’s definitely because of the gay. There are four or five other ads on youtube that are het oriented and did not garner this “controversy.”
