Gust Kenworthy’s got himself another Winter Olympics commercial that also celebrates gay pride/love.
After waving a rainbow flag in a Head & Shoulders commercial this past January, we didin’t think Kenworthy could get another great gay ad gig. We were wrong.
In a series of commercials with sponsor Samsung, Kenworthy shows how his relationship with boyfriend Matt Wilkas was strengthen by his time in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
The video below shows how Gus Kenworthy received multiple video messages from his lover at home wishing him well and healing him with love.
One message contained the words, “I am so happy for you. I am so proud of you. Because I know how hard you have worked to get here.”
The series, which works as both an advertisement for Samsung and a documentary for Kenworthy, was directed by Michel Clarke. The series will continue to be updated regularly and reveal Kenworthy’s journey to and at the 2018 Winter Olympics.
The caption for the aboce video was written by Kenworthy himself and says:
“This became so much bigger than skiing. You all let me be myself and that’s all I’ve ever wanted.”
“Thank you to my partner Samsung for helping share my story.”
