* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjjBA7ONB34 this commercial]] for the Tide To Go stain removal pen, a gay male couple are about to walk inside a church to get married when an official-looking woman--clearly a parody of infamous county clerk Kim Davis--halts them at the door and refuses to "let them blemish the sanctity of marriage." As the grooms get up in arms, she reaches into her purse, pulls out the Tide pen, and cleans away a large stain on the ginger groom's shirt. Then she straightens the other groom's bow tie. With no more objections, she gives the men her blessing and walks off.
