The Silence of the Elfs

Remember Hermey the non-lover-of-making-toys elf from "Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer"? (How could you forget him, every gay guy has known some queen with that haircut at one time or another.) Well, I think I just found his (even gayer) brother, Bruce. Instead of secretly wanting to be a dentist, this one wants to be a QVC spokesmodel -- although it sounds like he'd have been better off studying First Amendment law. Have a look:

One of the creators of the product sent me this little censorship tidbit:

After years of production we finally have the Gaydar Gun finished and launched. But we can't get even a cute little commercial with an elf on TV -- even Logo has called it "potentially offensive." Personally I find Vagisil ads "potentially" offensive but I'm willing to let them float on by me to the their targeted audience. Take a peek at this spot and see if you can figure out what is so potentially terrifying about it? Thanks!!

Offensive? I thought it was funny as heck, but then again, I used to have Hermie hair, too. I'm just saying...

And this is offensive because??? Baffling.
