Amazon Kindle advertisement supports gay marriage
February 23, 2013 0 comments
The American commercial begains with a man sat by a beach, struggling to read his tablet computer because of the sun’s glare. The woman sunbathing at his side is reading a Kindle Paperwhite, and is having no problems at all. The man asks about the e-reader and is told about the features of this Kindle model. He then immediately orders his very own Paperwhite on his tablet.
After he has placed his order he tells the woman they should go out and celebrate. She tells him “My husband’s bringing me a drink right now”, seemingly rejecting his advances.
“So is mine!” the man replies, and the camera pans to two men smiling and waving from an alfresco cocktail bar.
The first Kindle model was released in the USin November 2007 and sold out in less than six hours. The Kindle Paperwhite was launched in October 2012.
