What do you think of these fake "Absolut" ads?

I've made them myself, from scratch, as if they could be real "Absolut" advertisement

What do you think?

Feel free to comment.

Regards,
Citro

And 1 advice- go for another job...

Wake up dude... Do you think that with these kind of work, you gonna get hired????

If you laughed at how bad these are then fine. If you laughed because this is your sense of humour, then I pity you.

Davosk, you pity echomedia because he laughed his ass off on my work? How come does that itch you so bad?
Obscene and tasteless? Are you in the real world?
BFB, thanks for the opinion.
ivan, thanks for the opinion.
Funky_Frogii, yes, the lady is bending over the car. Tuning is normaly associated to hot babes and modified cars, so, absolut reveals the "real" nun and the real "corsa".
Adam Hyde, very constructive critic, thank you. Care to show us your work? I promise I won't steal your job...

It's schoolboy humour (6th grade). Good luck in your career as a mail boy.

this is something for in your portfolio. For sure! Make sure you tell the director the part about the 'real' nun and the 'real' corsa.

I for one enjoy seeing these...

Let me explain. See, I'm a student as well and if other students are coming up with this type of shit it'll make my job hunt VERY easy! Not that I'm that good, but with competition like this I feel pretty secure about my chances! Haha

Holy schadenfreude, Batman. If your work's shit, then regardless of how shitty others are in comparison, a CD won't hire you. Everyone's written a bad ad, and I'm sure you wouldn't want somebody saying your lesser work makes them feel better about themselves. Just my $0.02.

Hahaha, i know it is hard, but sorry to say.. its the truth...

I think that for humour, its ok but the thought of using these two artwork for real absolut ads.... i would think twice no, a million time before...

And one more thing, where is the idea, u are just taking the concept of absolut... work harder.. and you should accept critics and work better and harder...

I think that everyone has come with these type of ideas but its too easy...
Advertising is a world predators, so don't become the prey...

Motivate yourself, find a good brief and back to work...

For my works.... hahaha... no..

Well, Citro with your perception and your way of thinking, you won't go far in Advertising...

One very important thing in Advertising, respect the opinions of others ( mainly those with experience like Ivan, Davosk and Krautland) and also critics..Its hard to accept critics but you have to...

You may think that you got an Award idea but in the end, its not that great( others will see not you) or its already done...

Secondly, Continous improvement... don't think that you know everything and you are a genius, there is always improvement and refinement to be done...

I know that i was a bit hard on the critics, sorry but you should take the positive ones only... good luck...

Adam... Childish critics? No thanks.
Care to compare your last comment with the first one? Couldn't you have only wrote this one instead? Or am I not worthy?
I do not know who's who in here. I know Ivan is the administrator, but Ivan hasn't made a nasty comment as the others you've referred.

The other lines clearly don't apply to me, I can handle critics very well... but when I intend to be laughed at, I put my clown suit and head to the circus.

Actually, I changed my mind.
I think he's onto something quite revolutionary. When you carefully think about what he has done – give it time and open your mind – it sinks in. Fascinating! I never thought an advertising execution could have such an effect on me. Not trusting my feelings, I put his ideas by some of my friends at TBWA. Alas, the originator of this campaign, Geoff Hayes is no longer with us, but his team is still intact, and still looking for big ideas. They think his touch and sensibility is quite extraordinary, and that this work takes this iconic campaign to a new level. Well I never!

citro, you can't be serious... these are of the worst ads i've seen. you want constructive critics, here i go...
first. there was a previous smirnoff vodka campaign with the SAME concept, bees where flying and when they were behind the bottle they seem like helicopters and others similar. so let's kill the first idea.
the second one, what the hell are you trying to say? theres ANY idea in it. just a gay gag or something. it's like shitting on the brand.

don't know if you're a student, i hope so, but you should work on your criterion dude. if you are not millionaire, think about doing something else for a living.

Think it for a while.
Then, in anytime, it will come to your mind as an idea.

First things first... you think these are the worst ads you've ever seen. Man, I don't know where else have you been looking, but honestly, if these are the worst ads you've seen, your criterion is pretty much doubtful. About the Smirnoff campaign, you are absolutely right, that's where I got the concept from. So, for the Smirnoff campaign it is cool, but when it is presented by me it is crap.
The concept is the same, applied on a specific thing...period.
I only said I did it from scratch, I never denied any influence. ALL OF US are influenced, whether on a conscientiousness, or unconscientiousness basis... EVERY SINGLE DAY, you are bombed with information, others ideas, etc...
You don't get the second one? Vaseline works on both female and male asses, I don't know why you have assumed it as gay for a starters. Search for Absolut advertising, you will find many "jokes" where the shape of the bottle is used out of the context to make IT the context. I did a joke with it, plain simple.
I'll be a student until I die hence everyday we learn something new.

I love this. Citro is an Art Director-Troll. He makes fake ads just to fuck with you people. He's probably sitting at some agency as a CD laughing at everyone right now...

Dude citro you're such a retard. An ad is like a joke- it loses its magic if you have to explain it. Here however, you've gone and explained your excuse for an ad before anyone can get it. Thank God you did too, because quite frankly they're ridiculous. Your attempt at humour sucks and if you aspire to enter the advertising industry, don't. You're a bit too retarded for it. There's a vast difference between creativity and absurdity. The comments and reactions could have been worse if you hadn't made it clear what you were trying so hard to portray...idiot.

Citro you dumb dick, here are a FEW problems i have with your shitty "ads". First of all, as someone already pointed out, the concept is ripped off from Smirnoff, which is pretty much the worst and last thing you do in advertising; second, if you are gonna rip something off, at least do it well and not make some bad- looking, tasteless pictures which mean nothing; third, what's wrong with you? Do you foster such sick thoughts that you wish to pollute the advertising world with your shit? Notice how I've never actually acknowledged your "work" as ads, only as "shit". Someone's said that you should stop aspiring a job in advertising. I agree completely. You fuckface citro it's better to shut up and let everyone assume you're an idiot rather than go public and prove that you're an idiot. I hope you die man...asap and violently.

Absolut vaseline should be Absolut San Francisco, though still too tasteless to run, even in a gay mag.

The nun one is a Smirnoff ad, not an Absolute ad. They own that 'reality seen through the bottle' thing. And has nothing to do with tuning.

hi, first one is not good-it's realy similare as smirnoff vodka advert. in my opinion is second one great.
