Watch Sydney Mardi Gras GAYTMs Disperse Cash, Rainbows

Posted by Abe Sauer on March 5, 2014 01:42 PM

It's not an ATM. It's a GAYTM! To celebrate Sydney Mardi Gras, the annual (and largest of its kind) LGBTIQ pride parade, national bank ANZ converted a number of its bland ATMS around the city to flashy "GAYTMs."

Get it!? As the principal sponsor of the gay pride event (an impressive feat for such a staid industry like banking), ANZ's GAYTMs disperse both cash and life-affirming messages. Receipts are, of course, rainbow-colored. Even Star Trek actor and gay activist George Takei took notice.

The trailer (above) has already been released, with part 1 of the film debuting June 27 and part 2 coming out July 6, both on Absolut’s Facebook page.

But wait! There’s more. As part of Green’s partnership with Absolut, the singer will be a “guest editor” on Absolut’s Facebook page for 10 days surrounding the film’s launch with a Facebook app, “Forget You” (a reference to the clean version of his hit single) that will allow Cee Lo to “send a custom video message direct, commenting on friends’ Relationship Status updates.” Who knows what he might have to say, especially if he’s been at that Absolut!Continue reading...
