    Absolut Ads - Absolut Genius

    All this talk of alcohol in the derailment thread has inspired me to post about one of my favorite ad campaigns of all time.



    I especially love the ones that are in the style of artists.




    Absolut Warhol

    There is a website dedicated to the campaign Absolute Ads. They have a complete archive of the ads to date. Here is an introduction on the main gallery page:

This gallery offers just a fragment of the total and although it will never be complete it will, I hope, give you an idea of the variety and scope of imagination of the staff of the TBWA advertising agency over the past 25 odd years.
    There is a book that was published a few years ago. I have wanted that even before the book was put together.

    Do you have a favorite Aboslut Ad?
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



    May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

    NO GOATS!

    These are so not like Smirnoff Twists, Bacardi SIlver all that other crap. They are nice and strong and tasty!! I think I like Apple best followed by Cosmo then Lemon and Blue Lagoon last!

    When I was a PR major, in our advertising class, we made our own Absolut ads. It was awesome. I can't remember what my group did. Even before I drank, I loved those ads.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
