Jude Law in a Johnnie Walker Blue Label ad

Want to see Jude Law dance? In a cinematic ad for Johnnie Walker Blue Label, the British actor dons his dancing shoes and flashes his seductive, swoon-worthy gaze at the camera in his role as a ‘gentleman with a wager.’

It’s a six and a half minute short film that also stars Italian actor Giancarlo Giannini and alternates between the deck of a stunning, handcrafted boat in the British Virgin Islands and the backstreets of London.

The concept: to portray the scotch whisky as a luxury brand for the gentleman who already has everything and who wants to up the ante. In this case, the man with barrels of money, wagers a dance for a yacht.


“The film is about improvement and progress and this is something I try to do in my work and my everyday life,” said Law in a statement.

“I had to learn new skills shooting this film and that combined with the places we visited and shot in, alongside working with Jake and with Giancarlo, made it a truly rare experience.”
