The lover is the one who waits. And when your paramour is Santa Claus, that wait can be a pretty excruciating one. That’s why Santa’s drafted in the Norwegian postal service in this year’s Christmas ad, leaving him free to spend some well-earned time with his new boyfriend.
This heartfelt ad documents his relationship with Harry, with their fleeting encounters always interrupted by Christmas duty. That is, until a friendly postie lends a hand and lets the couple finally spend their first holiday together.
It’s a very touching campaign, with some tender moments and memories shared around the Christmas tree. The ad also marks 50 years since homosexuality was decriminalised in Norway, and its celebration of LGBTQ love has led to an overwhelmingly positive response worldwide.
