FYI…..Guinness whch is brewed in Ireland is owned by British multinational Diageo (who also own Smirnoff, Johnnie Walker, Captain Morgan, Seagrams etc). Diageo also own Red Stripe lager – the Jamaican brewed beer. And Diageo got into hot water some years ago from gay groups because of its sponsorship of a Jamaican music festival which featured homophobic dancehall acts.

Now I have read a few comments on other sites that they think this commerical is highly homophobic. On the other hand Fosters is also going out of its way to make the title characters Brad and Dan come off as some Boozy, Aussie slacker, beach bum boys and the guy who’s calling the line as a uber straight uptight clueless asshole.
