The heartwarming love story at the core of Icelandair’s recent holiday adverts is a story imitating real life, according to a young couple, who were both amazed and touched when they saw the ads and realised how similar the narrative was to their own romance. Not only were the stories similar, the couple, Margo Kvach and Birgir Olgeir Bjarkason, look similar in appearance to the characters on the screen and are also from the same locations: Margo is from Portland and Birgir from Reykjavik. The resemblance is uncanny. The couple, who were recently interviewed (see the video below) expressed their delight at the discovery and said how thrilled and surprised they were.
