Gay version of the Google Super Bowl ad

I get the ending, but then I'm wondering why this couple can't live in France with a PACS (which they can do, legally). It's not a hell-hole here, and, while I get that the US is the super awesomest country that ever existed on the face of the Earth, they could have at least given a reason why they couldn't live here, if for nothing other than to properly construct the narrative.

As I commented at Joemygod, it took me a while to get the ad. At first, I was more offended by the fact that the Google user starts it all off by making it pretty clear he's gonna be a sleaze while studying in Paris and then on his return (the open relationship long distance search made me ask WTF?). Then I realized what the creator was doing, setting up a situation in which this wanna-be-a-sleaze discovers True Love with a Capital T and L. It's one of those ads that requires more than a bit of reflection.

But you're right, Alex: there are far worse places in the world to live than Paris (!). I'd be there in a heartbeat for the right guy.
