About a month ago, the world was introduced to Piggy Smallz, the cute little pet pig owned by Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson. Since then, the pig has appeared in a variety of videos and photos on Grande and Davidson’s social media pages, but now he’s making a real acting leap. Grande just shared a video for Sweetener standout “Breathin,” and it stars none other than Piggy Smallz. The simple slip consists only of what appears to be phone-shot footage of the pig, adorably walking around on a gray blanket, with VHS-style effects added.
Grande talked about a “Breathin” video in a recent Instagram post, writing, “‘God Is A Woman’ and ‘Breathin’ are both in the top twenty [right now] at radio! Thank [you] so so so much! I can’t wait for you to hear what else I’ve been working on. […] [Trying to] shoot a ‘Breathin’ video [because] I forgot to (hope there’s still time).” That could mean either there’s a more highly produced “Breathin” video on the way, or she ran out of time and the pig clip is it. I see no problem with the pig video being the song’s sole visual representation: The pig makes her happy, and who wouldn’t want to watch Piggy Smallz putter around for three minutes?
