Videos of the Snickers “gay” kissing Super Bowl commercial, along with player reactions are below.

War on terror? Iraq? Homophopic candy bar commercial run during the Super Bowl? Can you guess what of the three topics has the gay community in a tizzy?

Yes, you guessed it. Under preposterous pressure from the gay community, Snickers pulled any continuation of the video commercial below the fold.

The full story is at FoxNews.

A commercial for Snickers candy bars launched in the Super Bowl broadcast was benched after its maker got complaints that it was homophobic.

The ad showed two auto mechanics accidentally kissing while eating the same candy bar and then ripping out some chest hair to do something “manly.” One of the alternate endings on the Snickers Web site showed the men attacking each other.

The Human Rights Campaign and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation complained to the maker of Snickers, Hackettstown-based Masterfoods USA, a division of Mars Inc., which also makes M&M’s and other candies.

The Web site also featured video of players from the Super Bowl teams reacting to the kiss.

“This type of jeering from professional sports figures at the sight of two men kissing fuels the kind of anti-gay bullying that haunts countless gay and lesbian school children on playgrounds all across the country,” Human Rights Campaign president Joe Solmonese said in a statement.

So here are the videos. The first video is the commercial ad itself which ran during the Super Bowl. The next two are player reaction videos which appeared on the company website. ALL have been taken down today.

This is called “funny”. It is okay to be funny. There there. The gay community appears to be silent — perhaps even cheering — about Prince’s giant phallic symbol during the half-time show. So what’s the big deal with a candy bar commercial?
