Norway Takes The Christmas Romance Cliché Way Too Far In LGBTQ Ad

The Norwegian Postal Service released a Christmas ad promoting a gay romance between Santa Claus and a man named Harry which concludes with a long, passionate kiss.

The video, released Monday, is titled ‘When Harry met Santa.’ The approximately four-minute clip depicts a shirtless Harry who discovers Santa in his home just before he goes up the chimney. Then the video flashes ahead to Harry bumping into Santa several more times, one encounter shows Harry sleeping on the couch while Santa sits in a nearby chair.

“You’re snoring,” Santa says, then Harry lights up with glee. “I’ll be back next year.”

The couple appears to have several intimate moments before Harry writes a letter to Santa saying “all I want for Christmas is you.”

The video then flashes to Christmas and Harry finding his gifts as Santa makes a surprise visit to him in his living room.

“Well I arranged some help this year so I could be with you,” Santa said. The couple shares a kiss as the screen zooms out with a caption “In 2022, Norway marks 50 years of being able to love whoever we want.”

The ad was hailed by LGBTQ activists, with Oda Rygh of the organization FRI saying that “Christmas is a time we spend with those we love, and it’s nice to see the Norway Post show that love belongs to everyone, regardless of orientation, age, or whether you live at the North Pole.”

In the past, the agency has put out other politically charged videos with one Christmas video in 2020 titled ‘Make Christmas Great Again.’
