Some commercials are hilarious, some are annoying, but we saw a commercial last night that was disturbing. Google used one of their Chrome commercials to support the “It Gets Better” YouTube channel. You can read more about it here:
I agree with the messages that you should not commit suicide and hatred is not excused, but I can’t agree with the life style. AFA has called for the boycott of Home Depot for entering the culture war. Is Google next? I really like Google Chrome, and Google’s IO got me more excited about their developments. While AdSense is not doing all I hoped it would on my website, it is working nicely. I don’t want that technology on a side I cannot support.
If I could send one message to Google, I would say to choose other good causes to support with your commercials. What about Cancer Research? Starvation? The Japanese Tsunami situation? I enjoyed both the Dear Sophie commercial and the Google speed test one.
Update: AFA has a website where you can take action: One Million Moms: Google and Disney are Not Getting Better!
