There are many traditions that hold importance at Christmas, one of them being the famous Nutcracker Ballet, and this Baileys Christmas commercial gives the traditional ballet a modern twist. This visually stunning advertisement for the alcohol brand features the Royal Ballet, Black Swan Choreographer Benjamin Millepied and a re-imagining of the famous holiday ballet The Nutcracker.
The ad begins as 'Clara' enters an extravagant party and does a flirtatious pas de deux with the Nutcracker Prince. The Mouse King, here re-imagined as a dark and handsome gangster, confronts the couple in a fit of jealousy and a great, high-kicking fight ensues. The twist comes when Clara enters the fray and promptly ends the battle by high-kicking the Mouse King. This Baileys Christmas commercial is beautiful and extremely enjoyable.
