WATCH: Santa Finds Gay Love in Norwegian Christmas Ad

  • As it turns out, children aren't the only ones pining for Santa Claus. A heartwarming Norwegian TV commercial for the country's postal service, Posten, went viral over the weekend for its depiction of a romance between Santa Claus and a man he visits every year for Christmas. The four-minute ad, titled "When Harry Met Santa," ends with a passionate kiss between the two, but its final message is perhaps even more important.

    "In 2022, Norway marks 50 years of being able to love whoever we want," reads a title card that appears in the ad's final seconds. "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! From: All of us. To: All of us."

    Good for you, Posten. The USPS could never.
