Maille's Holiday Commercial Ad Brings an Awkward Guest to the Table

Maille describes its holiday commercial ad as "The awkward dinner party moment. We’ve all been there." Whether or not you can relate to being in an uncomfortable position while sitting around the Christmas table at one time or another, this exchange promises some of what will inevitably happen from that one guest, whether family, friend or otherwise who has had perhaps too much to drink, or is just fond of oversharing in general.

The cringe-worthy conversation stars a young guy and a woman, chatting excitedly about a recent trip to Greece. Things go south when the woman starts to talk very openly about her romantic adventures on vacation, and the young guy can be seen looking around for help several times to escape this conversation. The commercial is wrapped up with a suggestion from Maille—bring a jar of the mustard to your next get-together to be remembered as a guest for all the right reasons.
