Anders ist besser - Different is better by Tabascofanatikerin Anders ist besser - Different is better by Tabascofanatikerin
Confused? Let me explain, especially to those not from Germany:

This digital drawing is a reference to a certain marketing campaign by the German TV channel Tele5. The motto is "Anders ist besser" (= Different is better) which means that Tele5 likes to stick out among all the other channels on the German market and tries to do that by sending special movies (like trash movies and be proud of it) and comedy (even their transition sequences are very weird and partly funny).

For this some Tele5 show hosts, comedians...promote the slogan.
Two of them are Oliver Kalkofe and Peter Rütten, who happen to be two of my favourite German comedians. Together they host the Tele5 show "SchleFaZ - Die schlechtesten Filme aller Zeiten" (The worst movies of all time).

This is their clip:…

Not only that, they also hanged out posters like this one in German cities:…

And based on that and the controversy that came afterwards (they had to face a shitstorm created by homophobes and others being bothered and offended by the two guys kissing even though Rütten and Kalkofe are both heterosexuals themselves) I created this little digital artwork.

Why? I felt like it.
And I got the context of it but even if not: I have no problem with two men or two women kissing each other as long as they are both fine with that (no matter what their actual sexual orientation is).
The execution of this campaign might be unusual and weird, but that is the nature of Tele5, I got that. And I just like these guys very much. I was surprised when I watched the clip for the first time but not in a negative way.
Also, their style in hosting their show is normally a kind of hate-love relationship, like they love to bully or tease each other. It was kind of cool to see them take a different road for a brief moment.
