“Illusion� immerses viewers in the imagination of a woman vacationing at the MGM Grand. Gazing into her crystal martini glass, she’s swept into a mystical world. Adorned in an elaborate showgirl costume, she rides a giant swan through a theatrical setting before diving into the air, which morphs into water. She wades past a magnificent martini olive before the spot shifts back to reality. With the snap of a finger, her charming date puts their table center stage as a procession of dazzling showgirls wearing gold costumes enter a spiraling ramp surrounding them. The spot concludes with a series of spinning-record-dance-floors under the light of golden disco balls, and playing cards falling from the sky like confetti.
