In a new commercial by the Norwegian Organisation for Asylum Seekers (NOAS), asylum seekers are compared with contestants in ''American Idol''.
The commercial is allegedly suppose to focus on Norway's strict asylum policy and that asylum seekers to Norway have to deliver, as in having really good reasons for applying for asylum, where only the "best" goes through to "the next round", much like Idol contestants.
Of course, if it was up to NOAS, every single one would go through from the audition and the show would end in 2056, with the last man standing, holding a Kalashnikov.
NOAS has also made a new website for the campaign, where some of the "contestants" are presented.
On the site it says:
"So You Think You Can Stay is a campaign from the Norwegian Organisation for Asylum Seekers (NOAS). We wish to tell the stories of some of the people who flee to Norway. The film has been made pro bono for NOAS by Fantefilm.
So You Think You Can Stay gives a face to a group of people who often receive negative media attention: Rejected asylum seekers. We wish to show that also most people in this category have good reasons to leave their home country and seek protection in Norway. Norwegian asylum policy is strict and many people are rejected in contradiction with UNHCR’s recommendations.
The stories of the contestants are based on real asylum cases that NOAS engages in through legal aid. Asylum seekers in Norway are rejected for the same reasons as the contestants in So You Think You Can Stay.
NOAS works for granting protection to those who need it."
Just yesterday it appeared that both the Islamic state (IS) and the al-Nusra Front, which is affiliated with al-Qaida, has tried to send terrorists to Norway under the guise that they were UNHCR refugees. which is not surprising as they have warned that they would, and a huge percentage of asylum seekers also have no identity papers to show when they arrive.
The fact is that too many criminals seek asylum in Norway, and those have to be deported again, so in reality Norway's asylum policy should be even stricter.
Here is NOAS' new ad:
