A gay couple is seen getting intimate in a new advert on Polish TV – believed to be the first time the country has seen a same-sex couple in a commercial. The advert for Durex comes after a year when about a third of the country has set up ‘LGBT-Free Zones’. The advert features well-known YouTubers Jakub and Dawid Mycek-Kwiecinski. The couple are famous for their LGBT+ activism in Poland. Recently, they have been distributing rainbow face masks in the LGBT-Free Zones to simultaneously fight both homophobia and coronavirus. The couple described the new commercial as an ‘historic moment in Polish TV’. The advert for Durex’s ‘Loud in bed’ campaign shows three couples starting to get intimate. In the case of Jakub and Dawid, they appear to be giving each other a quarantine haircut before they get frisky. Naturally, there are condoms in easy reach.
