Watch LGBT Group’s New Morgan Freeman-Narrated Gay Marriage Ad


We were chuffed this morning to see the premiere — on Buzzfeed, no less — of a new pro-gay marriage ad funded by the Human Rights Campaign. The 30-second slot sets out the year’s achievements on the legalization of gay marriage and promises the fulfillment of “a mandate for full equality.” It’s full of portentous rhetoric — “America stands at the dawn of a new age,” indeed — and it’s narrated in suitably portentous tones by one Morgan Freeman. We’re impressed with Freeman for doing the voiceover, and also with the HRC’s choice of narrator — after all, who better to appeal to conservative Christian types than a man who actually is God?
