Tanqueray Gives Us the Jonas/Bridgerton Mashup We've Been Waiting For

Phoebe Robinson and Jonathan Bailey also star

Waiting with bated breath for Lady Whistledown to spill the latest tea seems like a typical day in Regency-era London, where the corsets are tight and the pinkies are up.

Season 2 of Netflix's Bridgerton drops on Friday (March 25). Tanqueray is partnering with the show to elevate tea time to "T-Time" while giving the internet the Joe Jonas-Bridgerton crossover event it yearned for in a 2:15 video, created by agency The Community, that's full of octane, fancy attire, raised pinkies and dancing.

Jonas, who has worked with Tanqueray since 2021, plays a Bridgerton-in-training alongside Jonathan Bailey, aka Anthony Bridgerton, and Bridgerton superfan and comedian Phoebe Robinson.

"Through our partnership, Tanqueray and Bridgerton will show fans how they can transform their everyday by boldly embracing their inner fancy and immerse themselves in the world of the show with a delicious tea-inspired Tanqueray cocktail," says Christina Choi, SVP of rum, tequila and gin at Diageo.

The video begins with Jonas leaning into internet lore about the distinct similarities between the Bridgerton brothers and the Jonas brothers. But he needs help. Bailey coaches him in the Bridgerton ways by video call while Robinson provides in-person advice as "The Queen." Step one is wearing the proper attire, sipping a Tanqueray martini and color commentary from Bailey. Step two is a lesson in proper sipping techniques. Robinson has Jonas lick her spoon so she can later sell it online. The final step is dancing. Sophistication is thrown out the window and we're here for it. Yas King!

Bailey offers his overall feedback, describing Jonas as a Bridgerton who's "a really distant, estranged cousin." On the flip side, there's no way Bailey is ready to be a Jonas. Perhaps by Season 3?

Tanqueray | It's Not Teatime. It's T-Time.

"The partnership with Joe Jonas comes at the perfect time as the internet took wind of the many similarities between the Jonas and Bridgerton families," Choi tells Muse. "Aside from being a true Bridgerton fan, Joe Jonas embodies the Tanqueray "Damn Fancy" persona and continues to display meaningful engagement with key audiences for the brand. Through Phoebe's interpretation of the show and Jonathan's real-life experience in the role, the two of them were the perfect match for Joe Jonas to learn 'How to be a Bridgerton.' "

The video is running on Tanqueray's social channels and Clevver News, Elle and Entertainment Weekly.

Fans can win one of three Bridgerton experiences by uploading videos and pics of how they #makeitTtime. The grand prize is a stay in NYC, with period piece attire, a "T-time" happy hour and VIP access to The Queen’s Ball. Remaining prizes are a Bridgerton watch party at a fancy hotel suite and a live oil painting, as in, you and your friends cosplay Bridgerton and someone will paint you on the spot.

If that's not enough, limited-edition Tanqueray x Bridgerton cocktail kits are available for purchase that include recipes for custom cocktails, teacups, teaspoons and white elbow-length gloves. Because you're fancy.
