Funny or Die makes North Carolina an anti-gay tourism ad

New legislation in North Carolina -- outlawing anti-discrimination protections for LGBT citizens -- could mean a new approach to attracting visitors to the state might be called for. Luckily, Funny or Die is here to help.

The comedy website started by Adam McKay and Will Ferrell released a spoof commercial Thursday that offered a "special message from the tourism board of North Carolina, reminding you of all the fun straight things you can do in their beautiful, intolerant state."

"Now you can experience the beautiful outdoors, cityscapes and incredible ignorance by hang-gliding backwards in time, racing to the wrong side of history in a kayak, teaching your children to judge others while frolicking in the waves and enjoying our waterfalls without fear of gay people falling on you," a voiceover intoned over pleasant vacation images.
