As the unnamed young daughter unsuccessfully tries to recruit help from a gang of fairies clad in leather jackets and driving motorcycles, she eventually arrives at a magical forest perched on top of a skyscraper to seek counsel from Minaj's second character, the "Wisest Thingy."
With no success her quest for the location of Santa's evil brother, played by John Turturro (The Big Lebowski, Transformers: Dark of the Moon), the young heroine finds the "Fastest Fairy" in the world, also played by Williams. She eventually discovers the dark hidden cave where Turturro has been hiding out, and gives him a good scolding, making him swear never to steal Christmas presents ever again.
Filmed by photographer Tim Walker and director Johan Renck, the three-minute video and supporting campaign imagery sees all actors sporting pieces from the brand's latest collection, including plenty of cozy knitwear, sparkly party dresses, and dapper menswear suits -- all of which are now available in stores and online.
Minaj, who previously wore a custom-made H&M dress to the 2017 MET Gala adds that "they [Walker and Renck] had such an incredible vision for the campaign.”
Williams, who is known for his portrayal of Dr. Jackson Avery on ABC's hit drama Grey's Anatomy, found inspiration for the role in his personal life. “I’m a parent of a brilliant, imaginative daughter and story time is one of our favorite things! I make sure we tell stories with empowered female roles, and that’s what attracted me to this H&M campaign," he tells Billboard.
