‘When Harry Met Santa’: A Norwegian Postal Service Hung video where a Christmas character falls in love with a man
- BBC News World
In a candlelit room, with snow falling around, Santa Claus approaches Harry and the two share a sweet kiss. This is the final scene from the Norwegian Postal Service’s emotional video and commentary to celebrate the decriminalization of homosexuality in the Nordic country.
The video was posted on Twitter with the message: “This year’s Santa Claus is getting help. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.” Social networks have not been slow to interact and have been shared all over the world.
The video lasts about four minutes and tells the story of a man named Harry who finds Santa delivering gifts at his home. For years, they only coincide on Christmas Day and little by little their relationship blossoms.
Until this year, Harry sent a letter from Santa to the North Pole, saying, “What I want this Christmas is you.”
And Christmas Day comes, the door rings, Harry opens. It’s a postal service that gives you gifts this year. Santa Claus delegated work to them, so he could spend the holidays with Harry.
“In 2022, it will be 50 years since it became legal to love whoever you want in Norway.” With this phrase ends the emotional video of the Norwegian Postal Service.
“Everyone should feel welcome, listened to, and engaged. This year’s Christmas ad shows that spirit,” Posten said in a press release.
The title of the video, “When Harry Met Santa,” is a reference to the 1989 romantic comedy “When Harry Met Sally” starring Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal, and you can watch it in full with English subtitles here:
