Carlson, known for his fiery presentation style, expressed surprise at the advertisement, stating he was unaware of its existence until a journalist informed him. The ad, as described by BBC media monitoring expert Francis Scarr, showcased Carlson with a caption suggesting the American presenter was "moving to another level" in Russia.
