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.
