UK Retailer Robert Dyas Comes Out As Gay, Straight, and Bisexual In Holiday Advert – Video

Robert Diyas


Robert Dyas,  a UK retailer founded in London in 1872 that sells housewares, small electrical appliances, gardening products, kitchenwares, DIY, and consumer electronics has produced a well intention yet confusing  Christmas advert which has left many people confused.

The commercial titled “We’re Robert Dyas and we’re gay. And straight. And bi…”, features members of staff and shoppers showing off goods at the store.

The first to appear on screen is gay employee Marcus (pictured above), who tells viewers: “I like going out with my friends and playing volleyball. I also like showing our gay and straight customers our funky range of Christmas gifts.”

I’m sure you do Marcus.  I’m sure you do. *Wink-wink. Nudge-nudge”
