Dear Absolut, Your Not As Exceptional As You Think You Are

absolut_something.jpg

Hmm. This new Absolut commercial from TBWA\Chiat|Day called Anthem makes one yearn for the glorious days of the long-running and simply beautiful print campiagn that was the cornerstone of the brand for so long. Now we have all manner of over-production to convince us "doing things differently leads to something exceptional...in an Absolut world."

Well, first of all, doing things differently is no guarantee of an exceptional results. And wasn't this Apple's deal? Remember Think Different? And how about in the real world. Don't we want exceptional things to happen in the real world and not cocooned about in some marketer-created dream world?

Ok so we are way over analyzing things here. But we still yearn for the "absolute simplicity" of Absolut's yesteryear.
