you tube bigA travel company in Greece is raising eyebrows with an ad campaign that brings up stereotypes of predatory gay men. Pink News reports:

In the AirFasttickets video, which has been published on YouTube, a male hitchhiker is picked up by a gay male truck driver who is portrayed as menacing.

AirFasttickets suggests in avoiding similar situations, customers should book with them. The company, founded in 2009 by Nikolaos Koklonis, says on its website that it arranges travel for almost 5 million people worldwide each year.
