“When Harry Met Santa” transforms Father Christmas into present-giving daddy of your dreams, while also acknowledging the 50th anniversary of Norway’s decriminalisation of homosexuality. It really is the festive advert that has it all.
The advert starts with a shirtless Harry catching Santa disappearing up his chimney, The next year, Santa lingers for a while to tell Harry he’s snoring on the sofa. Their relationship carries on developing – but just for one day each year, and you see snippets of Harry’s loneliness in-between visits.
The twist? He’s asked for help from Posten Norge to lighten his load. They’ll do the present delivering so he can spend more time with his dapper, patient boyfriend.
