People Are Loving This Christmas Ad Featuring A Gay Father Christmas

In order to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Norway decriminalising homosexuality, Norwegian postal service Posten has released a Christmas advert depicting a gay Santa.

The video has since gone viral on TikTok and Twitter, with social media users absolutely loving the progressive ad.

When Harry Met Santa is a four-minute-long advert showing the sweet love story between an ordinary man and Kris Kringle himself.

A startled Harry first meets the love of his life when wondering down the stairs one Christmas morning. Shirtless and sleepy, he stumbles upon Santa hiding presents under the tree.

Blushing, he makes a quick exist up the chimney, only to return the following year.

They meet again the following year, as the title character catches Santa looking at a sepia-toned photo of a young Harry.

Yet another Christmas passes by - and Harry decides to make a bit of an effort for his mystery man. He changes his shirt, applies cologne and waits up for him all night.

"You're snoring", Santa teases. The man looks up at the mythical creature, grinning, as Santa reassures him he'll "be back next year".

After longing for his Christmassy crush all year, Harry sends Father Christmas a love letter (via Posten, of course). It reads, 'dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is you'.

The pair unite at the end of the advert, sharing a kiss. Our hearts simply can't take it!

We're not the only ones. People took to social media in order to share their feels with everyone else.

"Norway's postal service (Posten) made a gay Christmas Santa advert!" one person said. "It's magic. On TikTok would recommend seeing".

TikTok users flocked to the video, which now has over 100,000 likes.

"I don't even care about the translation I ship it. I need more", one person commented.

"It's 2021. Santa can be bi and poly. Why not?" said a second.

"Did- did Santa just have a gay panic moment?" a third joked.
