Gay couple featured in DIRECTV football ad

An ad promoting DIRECTV's NFL Sunday Ticket features a male gay couple fighting over which football team to support.

In the 30-second ad, two men crash through their living room as they discuss their football rivalry.

"Chris and I have our friendly rivalry," one of the men says as he's tacked in slow motion, sending their dog scurrying off the couch.

"Dallas," the other man says.

"Giants. You know the deal."

"Sure, we still argue sometimes," he adds. "But we're just like any couple, really." 

The commercial, which aired during the NFL's kickoff game last Thursday, comes shortly after out player Michael Sam joined the Dallas Cowboy's practice squad.
