I laughed too, but I was suspicious about the repeated Gaynor theme and wondered if this were a common worry or a competitor hoping the video would go viral... Do companies ever force brands on their dancers? (not that bunhead worries are always rational...)

Repeated Gaynor theme? I caught one mention, but then so much of it went by so quickly, I know I missed a bit, but ...

The credits indicate that the writers and performers are from the Royal Danish Ballet. I take the whole thing as self-parody and nothing more. I may be wrong.

I heard more than one Gaynor reference too, and wondered the same. And I have been in the situation where there was very limited brands of pointe shoes offered dancers.
