UK’s NHS Scrubs Terrifying Ad Showing Santa Near Death From COVID-19

UK’s NHS Scrubs Terrifying Ad Showing Santa Near Death From COVID-19

“Someone thought this was a good idea. Guaranteed to scare the hell out of little ones if they watch it. “

Truly, our political elites and our media minions have spent most of 2020 ginning up fears about a virus in which the death rate seems to be on par with the seasonal flu.

However, one entity seems to have taken the fear-mongering a step too far.

A television commercial for the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) Charities Together terrified children by showing St. Nick wheeled into the hospital, apparently dying from COVID19.

Here is the UK Daily Mail’s initial report, in which its intrepid reporter described the ad as…touching:

It’s the stuff of nightmares for children, as Father Christmas is rushed into hospital and nursed back to health in an emotional new appeal advert from NHS Charities Together.

The touching film, entitled The Gift, which celebrates NHS staff and volunteers, features a dramatic opening, with a very poorly Santa wheeled into a medical ward by paramedics and given oxygen.

It appears to be touch and go, with machines beeping and staff in full PPE as they do their best to resuscitate the elderly gentleman.

The NHS Charities Together removed the video from YouTube over the weekend:

In a statement, NHS Charities Together apologized to kids who had seen the ad, but also said that it “isn’t aimed at children and hasn’t been shown on TV.” The charity said it had at first received positive feedback, but chatter on social media quickly turned sour.

“We worked closely with the team behind the ad to make sure it was produced responsibly and it was cleared for use by the relevant regulatory authority. However, we are sorry to the parents of any young children who have been upset by watching the ad and to the young children themselves, they were not the intended audience for it,” the charity said in a statement on Saturday.

In a statement, NHS Charities Together said: “We created our Christmas campaign to highlight the ongoing commitment and hard work of NHS staff and volunteers to keep us safe and well in what has been and continues to be a really challenging time for the NHS.”

The Daily Mail reported on the controversy the ad has generated.

Critics have slammed the NHS charity Christmas advert for showing medics battling to save Santa’s life, claiming it will ‘scare the hell out of little ones’.

…Viewers have interpreted the presence of oxygen masks and tubes as a sign that Santa was suffering from coronavirus – in a move branded ‘insensitive’ by concerned parents.

Several feared young viewers would be traumatised thinking Santa was going to die and urged the charity to let children enjoy the festive season ‘without giving them adult problems to deal with’.

British viewers who watched this piffle gave the NHS the gift of their opinions most generously.

Ken Simpson-Hay wrote: “The NHS have now hijacked Santa and given him Covid to raise money for their charity.

“Someone thought this was a good idea. Guaranteed to scare the hell out of little ones if they watch it.

“Disgusting idea that targets the fears of the very young. Massive own goal.”

Linda added: “Are you so deluded on your own hype you can’t see how disgusting this is NHS? Advert should be removed immediately.”

Another Twitter user blasted the advert as a ‘miscalculation’ writing: “This is disgusting. Don’t children have enough to worry about at the moment?

“What a dreadful, insensitive miscalculation on behalf of the NHS charity organisers.

“How many children are going to be brought to tears thinking Santa is going to die?”

Other comments were examples of very dry, British humor.

It’s bad enough that many children didn’t get their traditional visit with Santa this year, or their parents are struggling with no work or limited hours this Christmas season. Whoever approved this garbage needs a pile of coal in his/her/xer stocking this year.

This ad is another in a long line of examples of the divide between the elite “haves” who COVID19 moralizers and the average citizens being forced to live with the latest, senseless coronavirus dictates.

My Christmas wish for this year is that American firms don’t try the same stunt.

Dr. Fauci says Santa Claus has ‘innate immunity,’ and won’t be spreading COVID-19 to anyone this Christmas.

    “innate immunity” is leftist double-speak for dead. I’m sure macabre chuckles went round the good doctor’s office when he used it.

    Or “Inane” immunity. Please… Z… feel free to take my vaccine shot. I’ll sit this one out until the first major MMRI report comes out. You have to ask yourself… do you feel lucky..do you?

      The Friendly Grizzly in reply to alaskabob. | December 14, 2020 at 3:41 pm

      Being that I am elderly, diabetic, survivor of one cancer, and dealing with an interesting form of leukemia… I will say no.

      If some diktat comes down about being immunized or you can’t travel, I will ask him to shoot the syringe into the sink and mark me as vaccined, or, that I want a health exemption.

      I am not an anti-vaxxer. I AM, however, opposed to taking a vaccine based on politics, not need. See: swine flu vaccine.

        “If some diktat comes down about being immunized or you can’t travel”

        Screw a bureaucrat, buy an RV.
        See America.
        Before it’s gone.

          Travel by road is great, if you have unlimited time. If I want to go ride some roller coasters at Cedar Point that would be about 3 long days of travel, each way. Driving interstates for 8 hours a day is a mighty waste of vacation time. Unfortunately if the airlines persist in their mask and vaccination insanity I simply won’t be taking trips anywhere.

          Yup, that’s the price of liberty nowadays. In an RV, you have to learn to make it about the journey and not about the destination. Four to five hours a day is our max, then we enjoy the town we stopped in. Ironically COVID is granting lots of people unlimited time (just not unlimited money).

    You just want to kill helpless elves.

Extensive Interview With Sidney Powell on Current Status of Election Lawsuits and More

https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/12/14/extensive-interview-with-sidney-powell-on-current-status-of-election-lawsuits-and-more/

“A television commercial for the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) Charities Together terrified children (…)”

Why would the “socialized-healthcare” British NHS need a charity in the first place – or did they run out of other people’s money???

Kann den scheiß nicht erfinden.

Early treatment. HCQ cocktail to reduce hospitalization and death by 80 to 90%. Ivermectin protocol has produced even better outcomes at later stages to mitigate progress. Both are inexpensive, available, and have been in use for several decades and more with low risk profiles. The vaccines are available for use in high risk cases.

I love the line about the ad being cleared by the relevant regulatory authority. Apparently, the relevant regulatory authority doesn’t have children.

This is hardly the first time that British sociofascists have let the mask slip.

If you think kids are traumatized by seeing Santa wheezing in the hospital, how do you think they might feel about their own teachers turning them into bloody gobbets of flying meat?
