Jolly Old Saint Nick slides down the chimney of his boyfriend’s house in a new yuletide commercial produced by Norway’s postal service.
That’s right, folks. In Norway there’s a good chance you’ll see daddy kissing Santa Claus.
Here’s how NBC’s Today show described the commercial:
“Norway’s postal service, Posten, released a heartwarming Christmas commercial that captures a love story between Santa and his boyfriend to mark 50 years since same sex relationships were decriminalized in the country.”
Nothing says “Ho! Ho! Ho!” like an elderly man making out with a dude half his age.
The nearly 4-minute long commercial called “When Harry met Santa,” shows the moment Harry first meets Santa — when he is dropping off presents at Harry’s home. The two share a special glance before Santa moves on to the next house on his busiest day of the year.
Critics say the commercial is incredibly inappropriate for young children.
“Sorry but the advert that Santa gets a boyfriend is a bit uneasy especially for kids …….#SantaClaus,” one person wrote on Twitter.
“Norway giving Santa a boyfriend is the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard in awhile,” wrote another.
I reckon it could’ve been worse. At least Kris Kringle wasn’t frolicking with the elves.
