The Story Behind the Dancers in Apple's Holiday Ad Is as Sweet as the Dancing Itself

There are holiday ads, and there are HOLIDAY ADS. Apple's festive new campaign, titled "Sway," is definitely the latter! We love everything about it, from the music (can't go wrong with a Sam Smith serenade), to the insane dance stunts, to the "punny" tagline: "Move someone this holiday." But the coolest part of the ad has to do with the dancers themselves.

According to Adweek, the two pros—Lauren Yalango-Grant and Christopher Grant—are actually husband and wife, who first met while waiting in line at a dance audition in NYC. How romantic is that? They're what we'd call dancer relationship #goals.

It's no wonder these two have the kind of chemistry and trust required to perform the complicated lifts that make this dance commercial so unique. And if you like their moves in this video, you should check out some of their other dance routines on YouTube. This is one dance duo to watch!
