In an amusing new ad for Norway’s postal service — one that you’d never see replicated in the United States — a mail carrier delivers a letter to the beautiful biblical Mary and then a “miracle” happens nine months later.
Makes a lot more sense than a “virgin birth.”
The ad ends with a voiceover saying that might not be what happened — so don’t get mad, Christians — but Posten has “always been an important part of Christmas.”
But if you can’t make fun of the most irrational Christian myth there is, then the problem’s on your end. The ad is harmless. At worst, it suggests a plausible (and entertaining) alternative for a literally unbelievable story that people know very well. Laugh it off and move on with your life. Or just send a package to Norway and watch that movie about a gay Jesus on Netflix.
