Ode to breastfeeding: The video took two and a half years to complete and their editor wanted it complete in time for World Breast Feeding week

Masha Sapron, a mother-of-three, created the video as an ode to breastfeeding mums and the struggles they go through.

‘Our video takes the purity of breastfeeding it an juxtaposes it with an 80’s song about sex and references other 80’s videos that objectified women,’ Ms Sapron told Daily Mail Australia.

‘If you take the lust for those women a couple steps further you end up with babies who need to be breastfed, so now you have these icons breastfeeding and that’s ironic,’ she added.

The idea for the song came while nursing her then nine-month-old daughter all night long which made her think of the AC/DC tune.

‘And you, nursed me all night long. Yeah, you, nursed me all night long,’ she sings

Ms Sapron, through her husband’s film industry connections she was even worked with professional singers, producers and mixers to record the song.

For the music video she was able to assemble film personnel, dancers, make-up artists (who all happened to be parents).

Babies who need to be fed: Ms Sapron said the video takes the purity of breastfeeding it an juxtaposes it with an 80's song that objectifies women 

‘We shot the video a year ago and were trying to get the video finished earlier but it kept getting pushed by paid projects. Larissa, our editor, really rallied to have it done in time for world breastfeeding week,’ she added.

Cat Deakins, the director of photography said reaction to the video has been great.

‘Just giving people a little laugh and a lift as they struggle with the hard times and the bad nights,’ Ms Deakins said.
