For a person like me who doesn’t really watch adverts because AdBlock is on all the time to protect from unwanted ads and occasional porn popping up, it’s quite something when an ad jumps onto my retinas.
Norwegian Post had an amazing concept for this year to celebrate the nation’s decriminalization of homosexuality ahead of its 50th anniversary in 2022. Titled ‘’When Harry met Santa’’ Pink News was the funniest, who wrote that ‘’When Harry Met Santa” transforms Father Christmas into present-giving daddy of your dreams’’, and now I wonder what Tom Daley will get this Christmas.
Santa delivers gifts to a man’s house and year after year both fall in love with one another. At first, Santa seems to be taken aback by the beauty of this stranger walking half-naked in his house, stares at him then disappears in the chimney. This man really had love at first sight for Santa because throughout the ad we see him missing him terribly, particularly at family dinners.
All until the man of his dreams catches him snoring on the sofa, where Harry fell asleep trying to catch a second to midnight. Then year after year they spend more and more time together. Santa is in a long-distance relationship! It really is so painful for Harry to hear ‘’I’ll be back next year!’’ so much he cries. Love is so well portrayed that it has to win all possible awards for the concept and acting that feels so warm!
Harry then gets beautiful and dressed elegantly, waiting for his man to show up, instead Santa got one of his elves to deliver the gift at the front door, while he sneaks in the house because he wanted to surprise Harry who stayed up for his arrival year after year. A surprise it is! He could not believe his own eyes! We got to witness Santa kissing his Mr. Claus! Harry got what he wanted for Christmas, I do hope they get married and live happily ever after. Santa had to end the long-distance thing!
‘’In 2022, Norway marks 50 years of being able to love whoever we want’’.
You have to see the Youtube comments: ‘’Psycho Paul’’ wrote ‘’ And that’s how elves are made.’’ And there’s more if you scroll.
