Make It Make Sense: How Incubus' Brandon Boyd and Heart Evangelista Became Piggybacking Pals

Imagine telling your 2007 self that this would happen.

( Picture this: It is the year 2007. You're playing the new-ish Incubus track "Dig" on loop on your iPod—though "Drive" will always be your fave—feeling totally badass as you walk into the living room. On TV, you spot Heart Evangelista dressed up as an, erm, "taong unggoy" on the ABS-CBN serye Hiram Na Mukha. Maybe you think "Huh, well, okay," for a bit before moving on with your totally normal day. Flash forward 14 years later and now you're in a pandemic, anxiously scrolling on your smartphone when a clip of Evangelista and Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd acting all chummy at a photoshoot in Los Angeles pops up—now you  definitely stop and think, "Wait, what?"

We're sure seeing these two seemingly totally random people having fun at a photoshoot has you slightly thinking about how crazy the world is. And hey, 2020 happened—so yes, this random connection pales in comparison. But in case you're tired of things not making sense anymore, we lay down what led us to this very meme-able piggyback moment.

Heart Evangelista and Brandon Boyd Work on an Art Collab

Long story short, these two artistically inclined folks were connected by the power of art. Or, in non-cheesy wording (no pun intended), the two are partnering up for an art collab. Both Boyd and Evangelista are known for being artists, among other things of course. Boyd regularly posts his artwork on Instagram and even has three books of his art; the first one, White Fluffy Clouds, was published back in 2003. Evangelista is also a regular in the local art scene and paints on her luxury bags, as hilariously referenced in that Paolo Ballesteros Orocan commercial.

Evangelista first let drop that she was collaborating with Boyd and others in May 2021, calling it a "little art project." The details on the project itself are pretty sparse but the photoshoot that has our 2010 selves reeling happened in Los Angeles, where Boyd is active in the art scene. Maybe the photoshoot is part of the art piece? Or who knows, maybe this entire thing is performance art. At the very least, we're clear on the initial connection!
