The last we heard from ManCrunch was the ruckus they caused with their banned commercial from this year’s Super Bowl. Two guys watching the game followed by an impromptu makeout fest. You know, the one below?
Well, they’re back on the radar. I just received a press release announcing the following:
ManCrunch.com Offers A Lifetime of Free Online Dating to Those Affected By DADT — The World’s Fastest Growing Male Relationship Service Hands Out Unlimited Memberships To Gays in Military
With the recent brouhaha over “don’t ask, don’t tell” in the U.S. Senate, ManCrunch is offering its moral support for the military with a complimentary lifetime membership to the dating service to our gay men in uniform. The ladies, well, they just miss out. The lifetime membership even extends to those servicemen relieved of their duty because of DADT. All these guys have to do is suit up, take a pic and get it in under the deadline. Here’s how ManCrunch puts it.
Any interested US military are eligible for the offer and can obtain their free lifetime membership beginning October 1st by sending a discreet photo of themselves in their military gear to email@example.com as proof of service. As an alternative ManCrunch.com will also accept a copy of military ID with name/ID# blocked out. Gay military are invited to sign up for their free lifetime membership any time through November 1, 2010.
Although the idea is an, um, interesting response to DADT, ManCrunch President Mike Chalut, said he wanted the company to do something in support of the gay troops. “These brave men and women are being denied the right to serve their country and do their job based on their sexual orientation. I find it deeply troubling that in 2010, the U.S. government would stand behind such blatant violation of basic civil rights,” he said in the press release.
Accoroding to the release, ManCrunch “has over 200,000 members since its launch in January, and is the fastest growing male relationship service in North America” along with the clever tagline of “Putting the ‘man’ back in ‘romance.'” Although, I’m kinda feelin’ bad for the ladies.
