In a follow up intended to run in the same commercial section as an earlier part, a man has been repeatedly dumped by women when they arrive into his apartment. First for being too messy, then for being too organized, as the last woman thought he was gay because of it.

The guy sits glumly in his living room wondering what went wrong, with his door wide open, when a guy (Johnny Cass, Australia's openly gay star of reality show "Big Brother") wearing a tight muscle shirt and carrying a small dog passes by, looks in and smiles as he says, "Love the furniture."

The media was bought so the two ads would always appear in the same ad break.

Says BMF account director Rebecca Oxenbould, "Before buying the script, IKEA were cautious with regard to the stereotypes we play off in the commercial, however we approached opinion leaders within the gay community and ran the scripts past them and the response in every occasion was very positive."

Commercial Closet offers that if Cass is already famously gay, then the additional elements of a small dog and affected effeminate manner would be unnecessary additions.
