Daniel Craig unleashes his inside disco diva in Taika Waititi-directed vodka industrial


Since ending his 15-year run as James Bond with “No Time to Die” final yr, Daniel Craig has not been sitting idle.

The British star has been busy brushing up his fancy footwork, which he enthusiastically showcases in a brand new vodka industrial directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Taika Waititi.

Within the tongue-in-cheek advert for Belvedere Vodka, which premiered final week and runs for greater than two minutes, Craig goes from brooding and enigmatic to swaggerlicious and even … enjoyable.

The advert opens with a white-suited Craig standing on a bridge, again to the digital camera, gazing moodily out on the water. The scene could possibly be straight out of a 007 film. However then it goes a bit surprising.

With a fast costume change, the 54-year-old sheds the key agent and unleashes his inside disco diva, shimmying, thrusting and gyrating on the road after which round a resort to a soundtrack by Rita Ora and Giggs.

The advert ends with Craig taking a drink of Belvedere and commenting “lastly.” Dancing is thirsty work. in spite of everything.

In a postscript, Waititi makes an look as a caricature of himself as director – being fanned by an attendant as one other feeds him sushi. “Let’s go once more, simply be your self,” he tells Craig, who flashes a smile to disclose glowing diamanté “DC” grills.

Judging by the combined responses on-line, followers are each shaken and stirred.

One Twitter person branded it “the wildest factor I’ve ever seen,” including she couldn’t consider it was Craig.

One other mentioned: “The ethical of that Belvedere vodka advert appears clear: ‘get drunk on this booze & you’ll embarrass your self in public and Dad-dance in a means not even Daniel Craig could make look cool.’”

A 3rd commentator wrote on YouTube: “Completely great!!! Loved seeing Daniel exterior the suave, refined ‘Bond’ persona. I so beloved this.”

Craig can subsequent be seen reprising his position as wacky detective Benoit Blanc in “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Thriller,” the sequel to Rian Johnson’s 2019 comedy-drama “Knives Out.
