A new set of ads promoting Las Vegas to gay and lesbian travelers mercilessly ridicules the style-free straight people they will meet there.
One ad shows a tubby man wearing white socks and brown shoes, a red golf shirt and rolled up pant cuffs, as he pours gravy onto his dinner. He's oblivious to the hot lesbian couples that occupy every other table. The ads are targeted at the gay community and are therefore not expected to be viewed by that many straight people. They're also a joke about stereotypes of all kinds.
The ads are by R&R Partners, the longtime Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority ad agency.
