Rowdy Helmi Hellrand Nyholm is filmed downing a number of faux-alcoholic beers and cocktails before stumbling around the shrunken bar set.

She then steals food and drink from other pub goers and ends up knocking a table over.

The one-minute Youtube clip is the trailer for the short film ‘Las Palmas’ where a middle-aged lady goes on holiday to the Gran Canaria capital.

Swedish filmmaker Johannes Nyholm used his one-year-old daughter for the role of the lady with the rest of the cast played by marionette puppets.

It also features Helmi smoking on a motorbike while other still shots show the budding actress asleep on the beach with a bottle of beer at her side.

Las Palmas recently won Best Short Film and the Audience Award at the Gothenburg Film Festival despite not being fully finished.

And the ‘viral’ has now been viewed a staggering 6.9 million times.

Maverick filmmaker Nyholm said: ”It’s my daughter in the film and she was the inspiration – everything came from her.

”I’ve had all manner of reactions to it but most have been very positive.

”There has been some criticism though – from using a small child in a film production to making fun of middle aged ladies and Las Palmas.

”I’m really surprised by how many people have viewed it online – how couldn’t I be?

”But on the other hand you can see that both alcohol and babies are quite popular subjects in their own right.”

The completed film, which will be 13 minutes and 30 seconds long, is scheduled for completion next mo
