The latest campaign from ‘pee-proof underwear’ brand Icon features a surprising trio of women: a pregnant pole dancer, a skateboarding advocate for queer and trans rights and 57-year-old clinical psychology PHD candidate. All three feature in the out-of-home campaign dubbed ‘Piss Off’.

The brand created the platform to de-stigmatise bladder leakage in women and celebrate the mildly blasphemous term ‘Piss Off’ as an affirmation. For Icon, ‘freedom means saying "yes" to whatever lights you up, and "piss off" to what doesn’t’, according to a statement.

Icon cast three unique female personalities – as opposed to the standard grandma character – to visually represent how one in three women suffer from bladder leaks.

The Piss Off posters are on display in New York City until the end of the year. A takeover of the Bryant Park subway station will launch on 4 December.

Icon’s in-house creative team designed the work.
