This hardware store's 'gay' Christmas ad has left everyone scratching their heads

“We’re Robert Dyas and we’re gay. And straight. And bi…” Wh-what?

SLING YER HOOK, John Lewis. Another shop named after a man has taken your Christmas ad crown.

UK hardware store Robert Dyas uploaded this Christmas ad to YouTube earlier this week โ€“ it features various staff members and customers proclaiming themselves as gay, straight, or bisexual, and itโ€™s utterly confusing.

The ad has gone viral on social media with people wondering what the hell is going on. Is it a spoof, or sincere?

But other people cracked it โ€“ the ad is very similar to this 2009 parody video by YouTubers Rhett & Link, which did the same thing except with โ€˜blackโ€™ and โ€˜whiteโ€™.

Parodying a parody. How very meta, Robert Dyas.
