Iggy Pop and his charismatic pet cockatoo, Biggy Pop are the stars of Gucci’s latest advertising campaign, alongside rappers A$AP Rocky and Tyler, The Creator. Fitted out in Gucci tailored suits and excessive accessories, the trio of icons meet up in a west coast mansion to dance in the bathroom and share spaghetti with their feathered friends, all to the tune of Cerrone’s 1977 track, “Supernature.”
The storyline might make little to no sense, but it’s just the kind of carefree throwback needed right now. Iggy Pop pulls out some signature dance moves, but it’s not enough to stop Biggy Pop stealing the show in a cast of stars. Watch below.

Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele said in a statement: “A certain type of fun is also portrayed and the idea of how one’s obsession with appearances can create a kind of common ground that can become a sort of brotherhood. It was beautiful to see these three men together, seemingly different but very similar.”
But Biggy’s show-stealing cameo can’t be ignored! Last month, Biggy made an international name for himself when he was named founding patron of the Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital, promoting the organisation and campaigning for the hospital’s ambition to build the area’s largest mobile wildlife hospital, in response to the overwhelming loss of fauna in last year’s horror fire season.

Iggy first adopted the cockatoo twelve years ago in Florida. We can’t wait to see where Biggy shows up next!
