    Whoa! Did Heineken just crack a gay joke?

    So I was watching USA network tonight and I saw a 15 second version of the commercial that I'm linking below. The version I saw started with Neil Patrick Harris staring at the screen and saying " Heineken light makes it OK to flip another man's meat."

    I did a double take when I heard it. This is clearly some kind of gay joke, right? Neil Patrick Harris is very much out of the closet. I'm not sure what Heineken was going for with this commercial, but it just struck me as kind of wrong. You probably need to see the 15 second version to really understand it, but here's the 30 second version which seems much more innocent.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    I'd tell ya, but then I'd have to kill ya
    Pretty funny. Unfortunately, just read a couple of the comments on the youtube clip already.

    What's all the hubbub, bub?

    Seems pretty harmless to me.

    I'm sure a gay man wouldn't agree to make a gay joke for a commercial if he thought it was a problem. I think we as a society should be in a place where gay jokes are accepted (as long as it's not, like, the super offensive, intentionally harmful kind).

    Yeah, so much for the stereotype that gay men have more discriminating taste
