Jason Collins coming out featured in Google TV ad on most memorable moments of 2013

The coming out of NBA player Jason Collins is among the most memorable moments of 2013 featured in the Google TV ad. I saw the ad on an ESPN college football bowl telecast and it is also online.

"When you finally get to that point of acceptance, nothing's more beautiful," Collins says in a clip from a TV interview under inspirational moments. There are also clips of same-sex couples getting married.

It's only a snippet in the 90-second ad but shows how powerful and newsworthy Collins' coming out was. It was cool to see it in an ad airing on a college football game. I now hope that Collins will be signed by an NBA team and then him playing as an openly gay man can make Google's 2014 ad.
