I'm a full-time somebody at a world-wide agency and a wealthy American industrialist looking to open a silver mine in the mountains of Peru.

Ever since I saw that slow motion camera capturing a water balloon burst - we seem to have been inundated with ads using this technique. Schweppes did it here in Oz to capture the 'schweppevessence'.
I'm all for embracing the latest technology but still it makes for a bunch of really lazy creatives.

If this was on TV, I wouldn't switch the channel. But then, it's not something I'd look forward to watching either.

With the tagline and the visual I got the concept that it's supposed to come together naturally, like puzzle pieces (which are not natural, but whatever) and that all the components fit together perfectly. Unfortunately, the print looks like the opposite of fitting together naturally, it looks like it's exploding or shattering - not joining beautifully even though the shards are not jagged.

It's very pretty, but I don't feel the concept is particularly strong nor am I sure who is supposed to be identifying with it.

No need to say anything. The voice over is not necesary. C'mon, it's absolut! As ALWAYS, the sole bottle says it all.

The animation was performed beautifully, I personally loved the jagged glass detail.

Very cool.
