Latest global campaign for Absolut Vodka, Absolut Glimmer. It's a global initiative where we have changed the iconic bottle shape for the first time since its conception. The campaign concept is "Make the present exceptional" and the design idea is about dressing the bottle for this moment in time. In today's world, where everything can be recorded, copied or streamed by the press of a button the "here and now" is the new super exclusive. To celebrate this we've created a glimmering Absolut Bottle that only will be available for a short time.

Absolut Vodka: a great concept, this is just "la suite" nothing new.

Simple ideas are the best !

The limited edition bottle is nice, but the ad seems to take too much explaining to be very powerful. My first interpretation of the word "present" was its other meaning, so I thought the bottle was meant to make Absolut a better gift item.

The environment created for the bottle for this ad is a little lazy. Not fully enough developed..

That's it.

I never understood the hype surrounding Absolut Vodka ads... They aren't that great.

The Absolut idea is usually focused on/in the bottle.
Agree with Billo... this is sloppy for this brand.

It's a global initiative where we have changed that there is Absolutely no idea in an Absolut Vodka ad for the first time since its conception.

Very boring. Not interested in this product after seeing this poster.

This makes it more interesting:

The move is made all analog, i like.

I think a rave party in the background would make more sense. I also thought the copy was referring to a gift.

Have to say... it makes me want to buy the product just for the limited edition bottle. Makes me feel like I have to see the bottle.
