John Cena, who muses on the meaning of patriotism, and the things should unite rather than divide us, in this remarkable new iteration of R/GA’s “Love Has No Labels” campaign for the Ad Council.
As he walks through a typical small American town, talking directly to the camera, the pro wrestler—who’s becoming a familiar face in the ad world these days—draws a line in the sand early on. Patriotism isn’t just pride in one’s country, he says. It’s love for it. And loving one’s country means embracing who and what the country really is—not what you might picture it to be.
Along the way, this small town turns out to be remarkably diverse—the essence of America itself—as we see citizens who are Latino, LGBT, Muslim, senior citizen, African American, disabled, and so on, all just as American as anyone else. The underlying message: To be a true patriot is to accept all Americans regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age or ability.
In short, patriotism is love, Cena says, and love has no labels.
World Wrestling Federation’s muscled meathead John Cena who was recently was busted for making anti-gay taunts in the ring, took to Twitter on Sunday and posted a “Guys with IPhones” type nearly naked picture of himself flaunting his well chisled body.
Perhaps this is part of his new gay sensitivity program.
Cena who once wrote a rap song trashing Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson which went: “You left us high and dry to play a fairy with a tooth?” and “He wore lipstick in Get Shorty, and rocked a skirt for The Game Plan. Just don’t go racing to Witch Mountain, Rock, cause your mountain is Brokeback.” and also taunted another wrestler MTV reality show alumn “the Miz” by saying“The Miz” “Do you really want to look back years from now and realize you shared your legacy with another man?!” is now working with the WWE and GLAAD to ensure that WWE fans know that WWE is against bullying or discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
Maybe this is Cena’s way of “reaching out” to his gay fans.
