We talked about the jungle the first time we showed you the super sexy Pert Plus Animal Instincts photo gallery and behind-the-scenes video a few weeks ago. Now, tens of thousands of views later (and still climbing) on Playboy.com, we’re taking the Instincts out of the jungle and setting them loose, so you can have your own piece of what may be our favorite shoot in recent memory. And they’re not just any shots: these are the best of the best—and, as you know, there were a number of bests in this particular shoot.
Even better, we’re giving you the chance to help us decide which of these photos to release as an exclusive Playboy.com wallpaper, free to download. Between now and midnight EST on Thursday, July 26, cast a vote for your favorite, and we’ll announce the winning photograph the next day. Just a token of our appreciation, from Playboy.com to your desktop.
The Animal Instincts gallery and BTS video are the product of much time spent conceiving of and massaging initial ideas for the Pert Plus "Don't Be An Animal" campaign in the Ads and Marketing department here at Playboy.com, then hours of back-and-forth with Playboy.com producer Tim Gibbs and photographer Jared Ryder. The two took that seed of an idea and ran away with it, throwing into the mix a talented creative team consisting of body painters Lisa Berczel and Nelly Recchia, their assistants Donna Hofstee and Saori Nakada, videographer Raul Hernandez and hair and makeup artist Joanna Joy Gershenson. And, of course, you know our gorgeous Cyber Girls, the Instincts themselves, Leanna Decker, Christina Renee and Sascha Aleksander, each of whom spent six grueling hours being airbrushed and hand-painted from head to toe before completing the full transformation in front of the camera. We have no problem saying the end product is nothing short of amazing, and we hope you agree. Cast your vote, then check out (and share) the BTS video, newly released on YouTube.
