The XX Not Cool With Their Music Being Used in Anti-Gay Marriage Ad

Posted by - 01:00 PM on 11/27/13
The XX have taken to Facebook to speak out about a Croatian political organization using their song "Intro" in an advertisement against same-sex marriage.
It has come to our attention that our music has been used without our permission in a promotional advert by the Croatian organisation "U ime obitelji". We wish to state that we didn't, and would never, approve the use of our music by this organisation. To be clear, we unconditionally support the equal right to marriage regardless of sexuality.

I get that this falls under the "political" realm, but it's funny to see President Obama as the avatar for this story.

Thought this was an ad supporting equal marriage rights and got really confused.

Hey!

But yeah, those 'U ime obitelji' fucks are NOT supporting equal marriage rights and there's a referendum (vote on a ballot question? I don't know what's the right translation) on Sunday, so we'll see.
