Fun fact: Widerøe is the largest regional airline in the Nordic countries. We've had a simply adorable piece of their travel advertising in the queue for weeks. Copyranter called it "the best airline spot I've seen in a long time" and insisted that "the casting, the acting, and most importantly, the idea [are] all perfect."

Buzzfeed turned part of the video into an animated gif. Of course an animated gif.
