We Never Thought We'd Feel Sorry for the Rat King, But...

Colorado Ballet's latest promotional video is sure to become an instant classic. To get audiences geared up for its Nutcracker (which runs through December 28), the company put together a little day-in-the-life portrait of the Rat King. Turns out the world is not such a friendly place when you're a giant, cheese-loving, nutcracker-hating rat. Bonus: The film is set to Duke Ellington's great rendition of the Sugar Plum Fairy variation, "Sugar Rum Cherry." Happy Friday!
