During last night's Fleetwood Mac-themed episode of “Glee,” Google ran a moving commercial highlighting the “It Gets Better” project to promote its Chrome internet browser.
Advertising space during one of television's most watched shows is quite valuable, and Google spared no expense with its one and a half minute spot.
The commercial featured videos from Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert, Anne Hathaway and others while showing off how Google's browser integrates the modern social web (and Google's family of products).
The Mountain View, California-based company has been on the cutting edge of workplace equality and has consistently maintained a perfect score from the Human Rights Campaign in its annual Corporate Equality Index.
Check it out below:
The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) praised the commercial today saying, “GLAAD applauds Google for producing a commercial spot that faithfully highlights the original message of hope and support for LGBT youth, while also directly aligning their own brand with it. When so many other companies remain hesitant to even feature LGBT people and storylines in their own mainstream advertising, Google has gone above and beyond.”
Good for you, Google.
