The video is a reference to the 1968 campaign by the Youth International Party: Pig for President. Pigasus, a 145-pound domestic pig was nominated for president of the United States as a theatrical gesture. In the video, a female superhero, the artist’s alter ego Ba Bi Bu, runs through alternative realities, while gazing at the viewer and exposing her tongue out of her mouth. She has brought the flaring pigasus back once again: to save humanity, to ridicule the authorities with her brazen attitude.
