As if their baby girl Luna wasn’t enough cuteness for everyone to handle already, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen just had to give the performance of the modern-day commercial.

In The Toycracker musical, technology-savvy diction such as the ‘iPad’, ‘Siri’, and ‘Wifi’ are used to emphasize and poke fun that this is a modern day Holiday commercial.

In the 8-minute long spot, John Legend, who plays the evil Rat King and Chrissy Teigen, The Nutcracker show off his and hers rapping skills in a battle. With Legend’s experience as an artist with many friends in the game, and with Teigen’s history as emcee of Spike’s Lip Sync Battle, it was one worth watching.

You be the judge! Watch the couple work their pipes in the clip above.
