Another miss step, this ad in regards to oil is just bizarre.

Using the acceptable society view of two women sucking face to pimp the oilsands is just whack.
They could maybe have said something about being 'free to choose', in SA, not on their lives, so choose Oilsands oil... And they could still have used their precious pic - but I doubt it.
Moreover, I'm getting on in years and had older parents so I tend to think I've got some dated views, but... As Gemini says, "bizarre". Are these guys in their 60s or 70s! The values and lack of common sense (today) just seem like something from another time.

Now it would be neat to run the same ad with two men kissing. BTW I'm not even a big fan of hand shaking.
Cheek kissing in the Arab world is relatively common, between friends and relatives. Cheek kissing between males is very common. However, cheek kissing between a male and female is usually considered inappropriate, unless within the same family; e.g. brother and sister, or if they are a married couple. Some exceptions to this are liberal areas within cities in some of the more liberal Arab countries such as Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Tunisia, where cheek kissing is a common greeting between unrelated males and females in most communities. The Lebanese custom has become the norm for non-Lebanese in Lebanese-dominated communities of the Arab diaspora. Normally in Lebanon, the typical number of kisses is three: one on the left cheek, then right, and then left between relatives. In other countries, it is typically two kisses with one on each cheek.

Is Canadian Oilsands Community one guy?
Google Canadian Oilsands Community and what shows up is this ad. Someone in their basement makes a nut bar ad and it gets lapped up. Typical lazy media.
