Grey NY, Director Karim Huu Do Team On Gillette Olympics Music Video "Pretty Isn’t Perfect"
Karim Huu Do of Caviar Content directed this Summer Olympics in Rio anthem video for Gillette out of Grey New York. The three-minute “Pretty Isn’t Perfect” music video focuses on the rigorous, unrelenting work Olympic athletes--such as swimmer Ning Zetao from China, cyclist Andy Tennant from the UK and decathlete Ashton Eaton from the U.S.--put in every day.
An original track, written by Sia, called “Unstoppable,” is featured as well as an original rap from Pusha T of the duo, Clipse, and percussion from Brazil marching band, Olodum.
A :60 version will appear on NBC during the opening Olympic ceremonies on August 5.
