Is This Toshiba Ad Offensive, Or Just Tired And Stupid?

Hey, Toshiba, the 90′s called. They want their gay panic back.

Via Buzzfeed comes this Toshiba ad, which trots out the old “straight guy is visibly repulsed” attempt at humor.

Seriously, it’s not so much offensive as it’s just cliched and tired. At least try to do something different. Switch the roles, and make the math nerd the object of attention … or … come up with something not stupid.

What do you think?
