Spot is in support of gay marriage in Minnesota

Chris Kluwe resurrects his classic ‘lustful cockmonster’ remark for radio ad
24 October 2012

In a new pro-gay marriage ad, NFL punter Chris Kluwe resurrects his memorable ‘lustful cockmonster’ phrase that he first used in a scorching letter to Maryland Assembly Delegate Emmett C. Burns in September.

Kluwe is asked in the ad: ‘Did you call an elected official a lustful cockmonster?’

He replies: ‘No. I said he wouldn’t turn into a lustful cockmonster.’

Kluwe, a member of The Minnesota Vikings, had blasted Burns in the letter because the legislator had complained to the owner of the Baltimore Ravens when linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo made public statements in support of same sex marriage.

The letter went viral and moved Kluwe, who is straight and the father of two daughters, to the forefront of the gay marriage debate.

‘My wife and I believe when our girls are adults, they should be able to marry whoever they love,’ he says in the radio spot. ‘We’re Americans. We have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.’

The 30-year-old athlete has been using his celebrity in the state to speak out against a November ballot initiative in Minnesota that would change the state constitution to define marriage only between a man and a woman.

It is the latest in a series of radio ads Kluwe has done for Minnesotans for Equality, the organization leading the fight to defeat the initiative.
