The multiplatin interpreter, songwriter and activist Halsey protagonist of a global campaign to inspire and encourage people to follow what gives them pleasure
Magnum ice cream today announced its most recent collaboration and its most daring campaign with the musical, creative and activist Halsey phenomenon.
Magnum has always believed that a day without pleasure is a lost day and that each of us should be in a position to pursue what makes him happy. An icon of creativity, Halsey has always thought that no one should suffer from brakes. You broke all barriers through music, art and culture; she uses her music and her image to express herself, her pleasures and what she believes in. With Halsey, Magnum wants to inspire and push each of us to show authenticity towards ourselves.
Speaking of the campaign with Magnum, Halsey said: “I have always spurred myself and the people I have close to expressing themselves without fear and doing what makes them authentically happy, without fear of judgment or criticism. I am therefore very happy to work with Magnum on this campaign that encourages the individual to welcome their uniqueness and to explore what pleasure is really important for themselves. My hope is that, through this campaign, people will be inspired to show their individuality with pride because without expressing ourselves and without giving volume to our unique voices there is no art and no artist “.Just like those who love to change their style and use it as a form of self-expression, the singer of “Be Kind” exhibits different looks in the video and provocative images of this year’s extraordinary campaign.
Hasley the creative
Los Angeles photographer Peter Don captured Halsey in a series of fantastic images. Known for his works that tell the travels of a series of top-ranked artists, Don managed to capture Halsey’s creativity and vitality in addition to his perfect embodiment of Magnum’s “true to pleasure” philosophy. Peter has worked side by side with her for more than five years and accompanied her, this year, on the world tour of “Manic”, to portray her in search of her ultimate pleasure: music. Peter’s images for Magnum bring Halsey’s unique personality and fearless character to life.Hasley the video star
The campaign is completed by a short film directed by Martin Werner, which presents Halsey alongside a series of people from all over the world. All people with an individual history of overcoming barriers to proudly live their truth and seek what makes them happy. Together with Halsey we see Kiddy Smile, singer, performer, DJ and LGBTQIA + activist. Besides being a singer, Kiddy Smile is a fashion provocateur with a unique personality. Raised in a poor district of Paris, he often found himself faced with strong obstacles for being authentically himself and following his passion for music and dance. Kiddy hopes that every single individual can live in a world where it is possible to be true to oneself, explore and express oneself without judgments or limitations.
