Seven hero images showcase method’s Drag Clean campaign

Seven hero images showcase method’s Drag Clean campaign

New advertising campaign from eco-conscious cleaning brand method features fabulous drag artists to encourage consumers to rethink toxic gender stereotypes in cleaning

A  new campaign is set to shake up the category by featuring an array of Drag Queens, a Drag King and a Queer Queen on over 150 digital billboards across London. Hot on the heels of ASA’s recent ban on harmful gender stereotypes featured in advertising, the Drag Cleans creative subverts the outdated, ‘traditional’ stereotypes that have been associated with cleaning for so many years.

The seven hero images showcase method’s love of colour, creativity and individuality, all of which are synonymous with the drag community. The stylised shots see the performers adopt a drag persona inspired by a hero product in the brand’s core range, to prove that cleaning doesn’t have to be a drag, and that you can be both loud and house-proud:

Cheddar Gorgeous inspired by French Lavender Multi-Surface Spray

Freida Slaves inspired by Clementine Kitchen Spray

TeTe Bang inspired by Waterfall Gel Hand Wash

Lill inspired by Passionfruit Shower Spray

Anna Phylactic inspired by Pink Grapefruit Multi-Surface Spray

Adam All, inspired by Almond Wood Floor Cleaner

Meth inspired by Wild Rhubarb Floor Cleaner

The out-of-home campaign follows on from the brands experiential and PR push, which launched in early August and marked the start of the year long partnership with LGBT Foundation. The Drag Cleans event featured fabulous performances over two nights, with all talent taking to the stage to deliver a show-stopping, cleaning-inspired lip-sink routine. Attendees included Nick Grimshaw, Laura Whitmore, Munroe Bergdorf, Oliver Proudlock and Daisy Lowe, with ticket proceeds going to LGBT Foundation.

Over the next 12 months, method will be funding LGBT Foundation’s entire volunteering programme, helping to provide support across a number of projects championing the charity’s #EqualityWins activity – which exists to help ensure a safe, healthy and equal future for all LGBTQIA people.
