    What is the Egyptian response to this ad? Do they interpret it the same way Americans do?

  • Mike

    Probably not. It’s quite common in Egypt for straight males to hold hands with each other walking down the street. No-one bats an eye!

  • Kevin

    Not just Egypt. Pretty much the whole of the Middle East looks at same-sex hand-holding as non-indicative of any sexual behavior. On the other hand, many Middle Eastern countries are tacitly okay with occasional same-sex interludes if it’s discrete and follows certain norms.

  • That Bitch Téa Delgado

    Yes, Middle Eastern men are totally ok with holding hands (I saw a lot of it in Turkey)…but are they also into Julia Roberts’ movies?

    This obviously homoerotic commercial could NEVER be shown on prime-time American TV, but they’re showing it in Muslim Egypt? Seriously? What was that again about how “they hate us for our freedom blah blah blah”?

  • Hilarious

    I watched the commercial twice and I seriously don’t get it.

    Worse than a car commercial.
