A 24-second music video teaser for "Pink Venom" was released on August 17, 2022, followed by the official music video on August 19, both on Blackpink's official YouTube channel. The music video was directed by Seo Hyun-seung, a frequent collaborator with the group.[50] Upon release, it reached 90.4 million views in 24 hours, surpassing the previous record held by their own track "How You Like That" (2020) for the most-viewed video by a female artist in a single day.[51][52] It also scored the biggest music video premiere of 2022 and third-biggest of all time.[53] The video achieved 100 million views in 29 hours, passing "How You Like That" as the fastest music video by a female artist to reach this mark.[54] A behind-the-scenes video of filming was released on August 19.[55]

At the beginning of the music video, Jisoo, wearing a hanbok with a contemporary spin, plays a melody on a geomungo while surrounded by rows of kneeling black-hooded figures wearing VR headsets and chanting the name "Blackpink". Jennie breaks through a concrete wall in a monster truck and struts down a red carpet in front of the truck wearing a sheer red gown. Afterwards, Lisa walks into a room inside a pyramid, where she picks a black apple from a tree and eats it; her eyes turn pink upon taking the first bite. Rosé appears in the next scene, pulling a black heart out of a stream of black water in a stormy environment. Lisa and Jennie then rap together; Lisa wears a streetwear-inspired cropped basketball shirt and denim overalls, and Jennie wears a cropped Manchester United F.C. jersey.[56] During their subsequent verses, Jisoo portrays a vampire, and Rosé plays electric guitar in a fire-lit cave. In the chorus, the group members perform the choreography together in various settings, including a raging sandstorm and a jungle.[57]

On August 17, YG Entertainment unveiled a schedule for the group's "Light Up the Pink" campaign, in which several landmarks worldwide would be lit up in pink to promote the song, starting on August 18.[82][83] On the same day, Blackpink teamed up with YouTube Shorts to launch "#PinkVenomChallenge", in celebration of pink venom music video release.[84] On August 28, 2022, Blackpink performed "Pink Venom" for the first time on SBS's Inkigayo.[85] The same day, Blackpink performed the track at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards in Newark, marking their American awards show debut and making them the first female K-pop group in history to do so.[86] Billboard ranked it the second best performance of the award show.[87] On January 28, 2023, Blackpink performed "Pink Venom" with French cellist Gautier Capuçon at the Le Gala des Pièces Jaunes charity event organized by the First Lady of France, Brigitte Macron, in Paris.[88]

Delivering two sets of posters, Jennie, Lisa, Rosé, and Jisoo tease the concept for the upcoming single. The first set of images shows the group members dressed in a variety of light pink gear that seems to express a narrative element. While the second set explores the varied styling points of the girls with distinctive outfits centered around a defiant attitude with lip accessory details.

Teddy has been on a creative decline since Blackpink debuted. Boombayah, Stay, PWF, AIIYL, and Forever Young were all 2NE1 songs. His slump only became obvious at the releases of DDD, KTL, and HYLT after he seemingly ran out of 2NE1 songs to release.
