A Norwegian postal service ad is dominating talk on Twitter this week, and it’s melting the hearts of Christmas fans.

Titled ‘When Harry met Santa’, a nod to iconic rom-com ‘When Harry met Sally’, the advert airs around the 50th anniversary of Norway decriminalising homosexuality.

We’re breaking down the advert and revealing how Twitter users have reacted.

When Harry met Santa ad explained

An advertisement for Norwegian postal service Posten, the clip sees Christmas favourite Santa Claus find the man of his dreams, Harry.

The title is blatantly a reference to 1989 romcom, ‘When Harry met Sally’. Much like the 80s movie, the ad sees Harry and Santa meeting and reconnecting year upon year until they finally share a kiss.

Posten’s Christmas advertisement airs around the 50th anniversary of Norway decriminalising homosexuality, which happened in 1972.

Monica Solberg, marketing director at Posten, shared: “It is so nice to see that we have created a new tradition at Posten, looking into Christmas institutions and folklore from different perspectives, with a grand Christmas ad every year. And what better way to follow up last year’s angry Santa than with pure love this year?”
