Everyone knows Super Bowl ads appeal to the best and worst of American humor, so will this year be a winner for LGBT viewers? Here we look back at the TV moments we loved — or that made us cringe.

 

MAN CANDY
Hey — this is the Super Bowl, two men can't do that Lady and the Tramp spaghetti thing! In this 2007 Super Bowl spot, two mechanics chomp at opposite ends of the same Snickers bar, and — oops! — kiss each other when they meet in the middle. In the version that aired during the game, one of the guys slams a car hood down on the other guy's head. As you may have guessed, LGBT activists were not laughing. In the video of the commercial posted above, all the alternate endings are included, though some never aired and were instead available online.
