    Angela Merkel Lookalike Gets Lesbian Kiss in Viral Ad
    Straight Magazine
    An Angela Merkel lookalike is shown in a viral ad for Straight magazine.

    A video ad for a new lesbian magazine showing a lookalike of German Chancellor Angela Merkel getting kissed by another woman has gone viral. 

    "Straight" magazine launched the advertisement on its Facebook and Twitter where it has been viewed more than 1.5 million times, according to the publisher.  

    In the ad, a radio moderator is heard saying "62 percent of Germans are in favor of same-sex marriage." As the Merkel lookalike shakes her head, a young woman enters the room, hugs her and gives her a kiss.

    Merkel, whose second husband is Joachim Sauer, a professor of theoretical chemistry, has ruled out same-sex marriages in Germany.
