2007: Snickers. Two mechanics are working under the hood of a car while one eats a Snickers bar. The other man begins chomping on the other end, until the two have a brief Lady and the Tramp-style lip lock. “Quick! Do something manly!” one exclaims, and they each pull out a clump of their own chest hair. The candy company also included “alternate” endings, some of which were more violent.
Although the company claims they were trying to be funny and not controversial, gay rights organizations protested that it was “unacceptable” and promoted negative feelings toward homosexuals.
