I really hope this is real and doesn't turn out to be a stealth marketing campaign for something, because this got me in the feels.

That was really cute.

If it were a stealth marketing campaign then I would probably be hooked.

The production value on that was so high that my cynical side has been tripped and I'm going with travel ad for Norway, targeted at retired men with some travelling cash.

It was very sweet though.

I'm going to go with real. And hope. Because we all need hope.

She looks genuinely terrified at the end of the video, though, so I hope she actually agreed to this off-camera before he posted it.

It may also be a stealth campaign to get single women to Norway. "He's gorgeous and a good son!"

I'm going with Nikon. But regardless, it was quite well done.

His closest video before this was uploaded 4 years ago. I'm thinking this has to be tied in with something.

Is there going to come a point when the Norwegians just spontaneously give up speaking their native tongue because they all just find it easier to do it all in English? Seems like that day must be just around the corner.

Yeah, it mentions a specific Nikon model, so that's probably it. But if all advertising was like this, then I wouldn't hate advertising as much as I do.

I love her a little already! But I am kinda the opposite of a straight, elderly man.
