The accompanying campaign film, captured in LA, stands for the women who face public opinions daily, with model Paloma Elsesser the star. Cancelling out the noise, Elsesser dives underwater, finding strength in the silence there, only to come back even stronger as her co-stars Nouri Hassan, Bintou Sillah, Yumi Nu , Shawn Lakin, and Tani join. The compelling film is soundtracked by Depeche Mode´s iconic song ‘Enjoy The Silence’ in a new version performed by US singer Fousheé.
