New Tide To Go Commercial That Takes On the Gay Marriage Debate [Applause]

In the commercial, two men head to the altar, but are stopped on the church steps by a serious looking woman determined to make sure they don’t “blemish the sanctity of marriage!” As the couple winds up for a massive argument, the woman pulls out a Tide To Go pen and removes a stain from the shirt of one of the grooms. When the stain is gone, the men receive the blessing of the woman, played by Pee Wee’s Playhouse actress Lynne Marie Stewart a.k.a. Miss Yvonne, the most beautiful woman in the world.

[Mark Nickelsburg, Director] First a clerk in Kentucky, and now a church lady in Los Angeles! This same sex couple faces yet another obstacle on the way to marriage equality in this commercial I directed. Special kudos for terrific performances by Matt Marr, Karl Ramsey, and Lynne Marie Stewart.

Tide detergent features a gay couple playfully bickering about the laundry and ribbing each other about a past “mistake” in the past. Unfortunately, the ad only appears in Canada.

Tide’s parent company, Procter & Gamble, has prominently stated their support of marriage equality, on Twitter.
