Delta Airlines slyly tucks a gay couple into new TV ad

Blink and you'll miss it, but Delta sneaked a gay couple into its terrific new "4:00 am" ad, which also features a racoon and a dwarf choir singing Heigh Ho, (from Disney's 1937 classic, Snow White.)
We certainly hope neither the racoon nor the gay couple association will cast aspersions on the romantic aspirations of the seven male dwarfs who lived happily together without human female companionship.
     The gay couple sequence was so brief, we didn't even notice it until we rewatched the ad on youtube. We love a good ad! (How about making one, GEICO?)
     Here are the deets, from
