A man catches the eye of an attractive woman in a club, then follows her out. He walks behind her and gets on the same bus she does.

Seated at the rear of the bus, he walks back and sits next to her, though they haven't said a word. Slowly, they begin to warm up to each other with hands on each other's legs before they start to kiss passionately. He rubs her bosom and discovers that she has a hairy chest. He pauses a moment with surprise and momentary dissatisfaction before giving the camera a "Oh well" look and moving back to return to the passionate kisses.

The clever, dual meaning line for the Oslo Public Transport: "Who are you going home with tonight?"

While once again the trans person is in the position of being a trickster, the man rather happily goes along with the situation for a surprisingly accepting ending.


Warren J. Clark , New York City
What a refreshing commercial. We have seen way too many of this type with the boy getting upset upon discovery. How great that this time is was positive. I wish the NYC Transit would be so bold.

Jason , Dallas, TX
One of my favorites. The music is great, yet the ending is even more positively surprising. Great one!
