As the thousands of cars make their way to the University of Phoenix Stadium for the Super Bowl, they may be surprised to see a billboard for one of the world’s leading gay social apps—Scruff. The 48 inch billboard, right outside the stadium, shows two burly football players in a locker room with the message “Play On Our Team.” A press release for the ad reveals the reason behind the ad. 

At a time when professional NFL players like Michael Sam and Kwame Harris bravely come out to the world and some coaches admit to not wanting gay players on their teams, Johnny Skandros, founder of SCRUFF, a gay social networking application used by 7 million people worldwide (a good number of them sports fans and amateur players), is sending a message to the NFL – by putting up a Phoenix billboard advertisement that’s certain to start a conversation about perception and acceptance among both gay and straight sports fans alike.

 

SumOfUs Takes on Doritos and Use of Rainforest-Killing Palm Oil in New Super Bowl Ad

Lots has been written about the dangers of using products with palm oil—a product that is responsible for the clearing of thousands of acres of rainforest in Southeast Asia. Little, though, has been done about the nasty consequences of the West’s high demand for the product, especially by big corporations. SumOfUs is hoping to take on Doritos’ parent company PepsiCo during the most watched TV event of the year—the Super Bowl—with a new ad.

SumOfUs writes:

That sound when you bite down on Doritos? That’s the sound of rainforests being “crunched” to make way for massive palm oil plantations in Southeast Asia. Workers, and even children, are trapped in modern slavery on the plantations. Forests and peatlands are burned to the ground, driving endangered species like orangutans to extinction and polluting the Earth’s atmosphere with gigatons of greenhouse gases — all to make palm oil. Doritos’ parent company, PepsiCo, could put a stop to the deforestation. But instead of leading the charge, PepsiCo is hanging back, issuing middling policies with gaps so big a parade of endangered pygmy elephants could fit through them. Tell PepsiCo to be bold and help save the rainforest.
