Venus--the pink-skinned mascot mannequin of Fancy Pants in Decorah--is about to get more famous.
That's because the...uhm...dummy is featured in a new music video recorded by Tinashe Kachingwe, the Los Angeles actress and singer who is the granddaughter of Mike and Pat Fitzgerald of Decorah.
While visiting her grandparents, Tinashe got the idea to record a video for her newest single, "Artificial People." So she surprised Fancy Pants owners Deb Paulson and Sharon Huber by asking if she could borrow Venus.
Paulson and Grimm agreed, so Tinashe took Venus to the area behind the former Wisconsin Dairies building. The result is a video that has now been posted to YouTube.
(Note: The video, posted above, contains some mature content)
Tinashe has appeared on TV and film, including on segments of :Two and a Half Men." She is a singer as well, having been part of the all girl band "The Stunners" and now recording as a single artist.
Venus is the iconic mannequin who spends much of her time hanging out at Fancy Pants in Decorah.
