NEW! Chrissy Teigen, John Legend, Star In Target's 'The Toycracker'

Target launched "The Toycracker," an 8-minute online video starring Chrissy Teigen as the Nutcracker and her husband John Legend as the Rat King. The musical reimagines Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker" in a modern-day setting, with five original songs and toys from Target's brand partners.

A young girl has no idea how to entertain herself on Christmas Eve when the WiFi dies. She takes a nap and is transported to a realm with the Nutcracker, Rat King and familiar toys like Elmo, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, My Little Pony and Legos. Rat King won't allow celebrating unless someone defeats him in a rap battle. Nutcracker almost wins, but nothing rhymes with purple. The young girl steps up and defeats the Rat King, who admits that being a villain is a lonely job.

Everyone resolves their problems, and Clara is transported back to her family. Now she's much more appreciative of them. 72andSunny created the campaign.
