“We wag our ass and we talk to one another” – Isabella Rosellini’s educational film for Burt’s Bees

Um, is that world-famous model Isabella Rossellini in a distinctly home-crafted paper beard? I swear last time I saw her she was in a soft focus, autumnal Vogue shoot in the early 1990s. Times have clearly changed, and now it seems Isabella is spending her days making really quite endearing educational films about bees for schoolchildren, in association with Burt’s Bees. “Different waggles means different directions, we wag our ass and we talk to one another” chirps Rossellini, dressed in a fairly modest bee costume standing alongside two other women who, together, explain common bee-related misconceptions in an enchanting, school-play-esque advert/awareness campaign.
