Santa Claus gets a boyfriend in Christmas commercial

Norway’s 375-year-old postal service, Posten Norge, this week has released a festive commercial ahead of the holiday season with Santa Claus getting a boyfriend.

The popular image of Mrs. Claus helping out at the North Pole has been dropped to show a more inclusive perspective this year. 

The four-minute clip titled “When Harry met Santa” — a light-hearted reference to the 1989 movie “When Harry Met Sally” — has well-known Scandinavian actors Johan Ehn and Terje Stromdahl, respectively, playing the lead roles.

The couple meet when Harry spots Father Christmas delivering presents to his home. They gaze across to each other before Santa disappears up the chimney. The clip continues to show the annual meetings between the pair as Santa delivers more gifts. Before each fleeting visit Harry carefully selects his outfits and sprays himself with cologne. 

Eventually Harry is seen writing a letter to Santa saying, “All I want for Christmas is you.” In the final scene, the couple kiss in a loving embrace.

The ad has been produced to mark 50 years since the decriminalization of homosexuality in Norway. The country has some of Europe’s most progressive LGBTQ legislation, with the Gay Travel Index consistently ranking Norway as one of the most gay-friendly places in the world. Civil partnerships have been legal since 1993 and LGBTQ people able to serve openly in the military since 1979. 

The clip has quickly garnered international attention with Canadian Member of Parliament, Randall Garrison, tweeting he was breaking his “no Christmas before December rule” to thank Norwegian Post for their “strong and moving message of inclusion.” The ad on YouTube has been viewed more than 600,000 times in just three days.

Norwegian Post tell NBC News their aim was to “show love has no limits” and reaction within Norway so far has been “overwhelming.” No decision has yet been made on if there will be a follow up to Santa’s love story next year.

  • This is just down right SICK. No children should be seeing this.

    • Shame on Sweden. Keep their filth there. Shame on whoever had to show it off in the United States. These sickos are targeting kids. That should be an out and out crime.

  • When did Mrs Claus die? Or did Mr and Mrs divorce? Nothing has been written about that and no movie is out to show that? How does Santa have a boyfriend if he is married? Santa and Mrs Claus have always been married. Those evil snakes that portray Santa having a boyfriend should be burned at the stake.

  • Propaganda in Christmas Commericals Attemps to Influcence Gullible Sheep That Santa Is Gay

    Amazing how Christmas evolved. Christmas or Chri*t mas is about the birth of Je*us or Chri*t or the son of G*d.
    It is the story of how G*d gave his flesh which was without sin, to the world to be sacrificed in our place so that we could earn a place in heaven.

    How the Christmas story was bastardized to create a Santa Claus was loosely tolerated, as Santa was a figure who symbolized “giving”, as G*d gave his son to the world. As long as greedy businesses had an excuse to cause people to spend more money, they tolerated the religious portion of Christmas. But every year the g*dless businesses make tiny tweaks to skew Christmases’ true meaning away from the younger generation.

    And now we are supposed to be “ok” with the tolerated story of Santa Claus and his wife Mrs. Claus being bastardized once again?
    Now, because of LGBTQ we are supposed to be tolerant that Santa is now gay?

    11/07/21 – “I want Americans to know that, first, adults should realize the evilness of Communism, Maoism, Marxism, no matter what name it changes to … And once you realize that, speak out about it, because they are using propaganda to brainwash people, to brainwash the kids.
    -They want to destroy Americans’ economic and social order, destroy your civilization.”
    -“They want to use all this to overcome the world, and America is their primary enemy,” Yan says. “So we have to stand up for the future, for our next generations. We cannot keep silent. This will be the last chance we have to fight against such communist evil plans, and to save all of us.

    Propaganda to brainwash people is not just the plan for Americans, but for the world.

  • Why Ask to "Leave a Reply"?

    I love how sites beg you to leave a comment.
    And then when you do, they don’t publish it.

  • Its just wrong. Sanra has always had Mrs. Claus. It is sick. Children need wholesome things. Same sex encounters are not it

  • Disgusting!

  • Is the boyfriend going to give Santa a reach around and kiss his cherrys and make him bust out a hard on for raindeer

      Glad you got to leave your comment.

      Seems this site is trying to push their RINO agenda.

  • Christmas Commercial Propaganda Attempts to Influence Gullible Sheep That Santa is Gay

    So Amazing how Christmas evolved. Christmas or Chri*t mas is about the birth of Je**s or Chri*t.
    It is the story of how a baby without sin was born to the world to be sacrificed in our place so that we could earn a place in heaven.

    How the Christmas story was ba*tardized to create a Santa Claus was loosely tolerated, as Santa was a figure who symbolized “giving”, as a baby was given to the world. As long as greedy businesses had an excuse to cause people to spend more money, they tolerated the religious portion of Christmas. But every year barbarian businesses make tiny tweaks to skew Christmases’ true meaning away from the younger generation.

  • This is so not acceptable.
    Because sexuality has nothing to do with christmas.
    The western world is heading south fast.
    No morals, no boundaries!
