Yeah, I hear that. This guy isn't gay. He's just a cunt. Do I really need prescriptive fashion advice, stolen forth from holy writ, from the Gap?
This is laughable unintentional self parody. It's one thing to be poorly dressed. It's another thing to be utterly without value as a human being. That he is both is just... entertaining. Briefly.

That occurred to me immediately as well. I checked his personal website registration and dug up his address and home phone number, both of which predate youtube by nearly a year and this video by more than two. His home address, assuming it's legitimate, is a real residential address in Paducah. If he is a shill, he's using his real identity in plain view, which would be spectacularly fucking stupid. Having known people who've worked for the Gap and how heavily they emphasize employee indoctrination, it's honestly not too surprising that he pushes Gap products and "humanitarian" efforts so heavily. He may be a viral shill, but the odds are fairly slim. I personally find it more probable that he genuinely believes the Gap is a good place to work and buy clothes.
