An ad promoting DIRECTV's NFL Sunday
Ticket features a male gay couple fighting over which football team
In the 30-second ad, two men crash
through their living room as they discuss their football rivalry.
“Chris and I have our friendly
rivalry,” one of the men says as he's tacked in slow motion,
sending their dog scurrying off the couch.
“Dallas,” the other man says.
“Giants. You know the deal.”
“Sure, we still argue sometimes,”
he adds. “But we're just like any couple, really.” (The video

The commercial, which aired during the
NFL's kickoff game last Thursday, comes shortly after out player
Michael Sam joined the Dallas Cowboy's practice squad.
