Check Out this Dance-y Car Commercial

June 4, 2013

Here’s a phrase dancers probably don’t hear too often: “In this piece, you’ll be playing a car.”*

But that’s just what commercial dancer Robert Prescott Lee does in the latest Nissan Altima TV spot. Apparently Lee’s deft partnering of fellow commercial pro Emily Williams as she navigates driveways, highways and parking lots is meant to symbolize the car’s high-tech safety devices.

I don’t know about all that, but it is pretty fun to watch. (And I’m never going to complain about seeing more dance on TV—especially if it makes my life complete by popping up during, ahem, “The Bachelorette,” which may or may not have happened on Monday night.) Take a look!

*OK, yes, the Pilobolus dancers have definitely heard that phrase more than once. Fine!
