I’ll be home for Christmas

MICHIGAN POLISH CHRISTMAS

 

This video has been posted about a million times and once you get beyond the Christmas sentimentality, I looked deeper at other messages, deliberate or otherwise. It reminds me of media under Communism that used subtlety and symbols to get past the censor. The multiracial aspect is very important and that exact yellow rubber duck in the bathtub was used as a symbol of protest against the current President Kaczynski (his name sounds like the Polish word for duck) so the comment to the duck, “I will fucking kill you!” is brilliant in an inside joke kind of way. But really. No self-respecting Pole, especially those with money as in the this video, would not meet their family at the airport and bring them home. Especially if they have never been there before and they don’t speak English.
