Absolut Vodka: Seize the night.

by Andrew MacGregor


Absolut Vodka: “Big Bang” - 60s

Having previously insisted love is indeed all around us, Absolut now go back to the beginning with this eye-catching commercial. Starting with the Big Bang, the Swedish vodka cram trillions of years worth of history into 60”.

Director Emmanuel Lubezki crafts a brisk jaunt from dinosaurs to Pong and beyond. As human achievements zip by, the brand encourage us to make our own contribution to history. After all, the night is young.

It’s a visually impressive rush. Meanwhile, the vodka align themselves with more enterprising drinkers. A lofty notion, but Absolut believe anything is possible… so long as we keep a clear head.
