Ad Council’s Love has No Labels video encourages people to rethink definition of love

Ad Council's Love Has No Label campaign shows 'love is love'

"Love is love," is the message that a new video from the campaign Love Has No Labels delivers.  

In the YouTube video posted by Ad Council Tuesday, a larger than life X-ray shows skeletons of people kissing, hugging and dancing.  

Then comes the big reveal: a same-sex couple emerges from behind the screen to applause from the audience, while the words "love has no gender" appear on the screen.  

The campaign also highlights interracial and interfaith relationships, sharing the message that "love has no race," and "love has no religion." 

"We all have different religions, but we have universal love," says a voice-over in the YouTube video.  

"We are neighbors and best friends," remarks one man in the video, dressed in traditional Islamic clothing, next to a man in Jewish garb.  

Two young sisters, one of whom is disabled, hug beside the words "love has no disability," after their dancing skeletons are seen behind the X-ray.

The video has garnered more than 1.5 million views and 7,000 upvotes on YouTube.  "This makes me so happy," reads the comment with the most upvotes on the video. "Being gay and living in a small town is really hard and this video reaffirms the idea that there is hope."
