Stand-up comedian Zach Galifianakis (of Out Cold and Bubble Boy fame) was tasked by Absolut vodka to make some commercials for them. Their only stipulation: it had to feature Absolut vodka. His only stipulation: he could do WHATEVER he wanted, no restrictions. They all agreed.
So Zach enlisted the help of his friends Tim and Eric (of Tom Goes to the Mayor and Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! fame) to help him. What resulted are probably the most bizzare and absurd alcohol ads ever created. You may question the soundness of Absolut’s decision once you’ve seen it, but remember…Absolut ran what may be one of the most successful advertising campaigns of all time.
The first one came out in March, and the second was just released. Here’s the second one, and I’ll put the first behind the cut. Let me just warn you, these are quite strange, and not everyone’s type of humor. I think they’re hysterical. Possibly slightly NSFW.
