Usually when plus-size girls get featured in mainstream media, it’s explicitly because they’re plus-size, i.e., a Dove ad about how every body type is beautiful or a commercial for a plus-size clothing store. Here, though, Graham not only gets to play the leading lady and love interest—her body doesn’t even come up!
She’s just a regular girl who’s falling in love and having a good time! Can you imagine?!
Fans on Twitter are, understandably, very excited:
Everyone in the world seems to appreciate toothbrush music video and the choice of Ashley Graham. This is amazing @DNCE
