Video Premiere: Laura Imbruglia – 'Give Boys Pink Toys'

Monday, August 19, 2019

We're excited to today share Laura Imbruglia's music video for her enthralling and dynamic single 'Give Boys Pink Toys'. Featuring raw and honest lyrics, 'Give Boys Pink Toys' is one of the best feminist anthems of 2019 and the video is a perfect representation of the track.

The sharp visuals for 'Give Boys Pink Toys' were directed by Nick Mckk, and feature Laura in an array of settings backed by a pink sheet playing the guitar and singing in mighty style. On the video, Nick Mckk said, "Laura and I wanted to make something that avoided gender dividing tropes. The song speaks for itself, so I again relied on Laura’s performance. She puts power into the public, and that is what we wanted to focus on."

The video also features intriguing shots using mirrors. Laura Imbruglia said on the shots, "As a person who is used to making silly videos, it took me a while to get past my own insecurities filming and watching this video. I find the mirror shots uncomfortable to watch and kind of unflattering, but I like it. That’s the exact point I’m trying to make.”
