Venus “The Pube Song” Spot by Sacha Beeley and Strange Beast
Powered by a show tune (sung by pubes about pubes), this jaunty social media clip by freshly signed Strange Beast director Sacha Beeley is out to change the way the world feels about female pubic grooming.
Sacha Beeley: “I probably don’t need to say getting a brief to create singing pube characters was a very fun experience.
“I love to draw characters that are creatures or human-ish. Getting to animate to music is always enjoyable, and I love animating characters dancing, so when I heard the track I could already picture the lil’ pube character dancing around so clearly.
“For this reason, my favorite moment is probably the very quick shot where the grey pube strides across the bath tub singing ‘no need to be ashaaaaamed!’ – that line always made me laugh as the way it’s sung is so operatic it deserved a really goofy movement.”
The video, which runs on Instagram, is part of a campaign to support the launch of the P&G’s Venus Pubic Hair & Skin Collection products.
