Mustard-maker Grey Poupon is celebrating National Pride month with an ad that borrows from its 1981 “Pardon Me” campaign. The current ad, seen above, on the company’s Facebook page, features two men holding hands through car windows, with the following information beneath it: “June is National Pride month. Though the festivities technically only last a month, we recommend celebrating all year – because Pride and good taste never go out of season.”

Sadly, and predictably, the Facebook page is bringing out some negative homophobic comments. But there are lots of good comments as well. There are several reports about it all online, including one on the Business Insider site.

Happy Pride!
