A Chilean clothing company, after promoting an ad featuring a same-sex kiss, has removed it, and replaced it with a toned-down version.

La Polar Chile is a popular clothing brand, and last month uploaded a version of an ad featuring same-sex couples kissing, along with the message: “No bullying.”

After the advert was removed, and replaced with a version which still features the same-sex couples, but only briefly holding hands, rather than kissing, a parody version was uploaded.

While the original advert has seen 40,000 YouTube views, the parody version has been viewed ten times as much, at 401,000.

The parody version of the video is available to view below
