Absolut: Dissection

The spot is based upon an Absolut print campaign which features a cocktail glass exploding out to reveal the liquid contained within it. “Dissection” expands on that concept by disassembling a full Absolut Vodka bottle, lingering on the vodka within, and then reassembling it by the end of the spot. About 80% of the liquid featured in the spot is real, photographed slow-motion vodka, but there are a couple of shots that feature completely CG vodka.

Directed by Psyop with visual effects by MassMarket.
