Chobani Releases Sexy Yogurt Commercial Featuring Lesbian Couple In Bed

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Add another to the list of gay-friendly advertisers — Chobani. The Greek yogurt company has released a romantic, undeniably hot commercial featuring a same-sex couple.

Like Wells Fargo’s recent commercial, a lesbian couple is featured, but Chobani has added a lot more sizzle.

A beautiful woman sits in bed and licks the yogurt from her spoon. She tickles the foot of her partner, whose back is to the camera, and then hops out of the bed, with only a sheet, loosely draped around her nude body. The beckoning blue sea is just outside the window.

Then comes the reveal. The camera moves in on the waking face of her partner — a woman. She’s smiles lovingly, and we see the wedding ring on her finger.

Sold. Or not.

Commercials portraying same-sex couples have drawn the wrath of the conservative right-wing. In response to Wells Fargo’s ad, televangelist Franklin Graham made a public show of closing his accounts at the bank. It was later revealed Graham’s new bank, BB&T is gay-friendly, as well, and has even sponsored a Miami Gay Pride fundraiser.

In a post on his Facebook page, Graham rails at “… the tide of moral decay that is being crammed down our throats by big business, the media, and the gay & lesbian community.”

The Wells Fargo commercial is tame in comparison to Chobani’s steamy ad. The yogurt company seems intent on pushing the envelope and has prominently displayed the ad on its website with a caption, “To Love This Life Is To Live It Naturally.”

A spokesperson for Chobani told the Huffington Post “As part of our founding mission to make better food for more people, inclusiveness is at the heart of Chobani. We’re proud that our products are enjoyed by all and we celebrate that diversity whenever — and however — we can.”
