not photos, but I do not think it sells the brand that much.

I don't think I want my vodka to be inspired by design. All that tells me is it's shitty vodka in a pretty bottle.

I don't know why, bit this campaign reminds me of the Absolut Bottle Campaign.

I know is way too different, but the concept is kind of similar, I think...

Yes, my profile picture is my dog on my sister's bed, with a pillow and a blanket...

The Absolut campaign had a concept. Every image was the absolute best of what it was. They often used art and design, but that wasn't the idea. This ad has no core concept. Just a hollow message.

Actually the Marketing positioning might be more interesting than the ad itself.

One question thought: I can't make up my mind about those Facebook, Twitter and Blogger icons. Would you guys say it serves the brand or the model?
Could this be par the "deal" to insert a call-to-action to follow, read, like/subscribe them? Or is it more like "we're such a cool brand, we hire guys that are for real, that are online, just like you"?
