The Times of Israel: The Israeli Origin of 'The First Gay Infomercial'

The current TV ad for Boy Butter, a personal lubricant targeting gay customers, is dubbed “The first gay infomercial.” This amusing infomercial-style ad presents a shirtless guy standing in his kitchen wearing only an apron while raving about “the wonder of the product,” complete with a demonstration of a cucumber engaging in an unseemly act with a laundry sock.
