This Ad Supporting Athletes' LGBT Rights In The Netherlands Is Strange

The Royal Dutch Football Association recently released this video to help promote acceptance of LGBT athletes in the Netherlands. It's a little quirky.

The KNVB's effort to promote LGBT acceptance within a rather progressive country that has legally allowed same-sex marriage since 2001 is admirable, but they might have whiffed on the execution. Are we supposed to laugh at a closeted gay athlete showering with his teammates and awkwardly fitting in with the team, when these are very real issues that can keep gay athletes from coming out? What do you think?
