Dick’s Sporting Goods (DSG) has set its latest musical ad campaign in motion with a husband-and-wife dance duo battling to keep pace with their doubles.

Promoting the DSG X Twitch + Allison collection, the high-energy piece pairs couple Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss (The Ellen DeGeneres Show) and Allison Holker (So You Think You Can Dance) together for an uptempo dance session – where their mirror images steal the show.

Watching incredulously as their reflections exit stage right, the pair tentatively push their way into an alternate mirror dimension where they can dance with their mirrored selves without being bound by the laws of physics.

Where Eagles Dare founder and executive creative director Brian Franks said: “What a fun campaign, working with amazing partners. How better to feature the latest DSG X Twitch + Allison drop than with an imaginative 90s-style dance battle v themselves set to the classic throwback jam Din Daa Daa?”

Serving as a continuation of a series of clothing line launches, the mind-bending campaign heralds the arrival of the brand’s fall collection by showcasing the bold styles of the married dancing pair, who have cultivated an Instagram following of close to 6 million.
