Lemon Drop bus stop

Agency Network: 
November 2010

As an evolution of its ongoing “DRINKS” campaign, ABSOLUT VODKA has used the bustling streets of Chicago to bring to life the unique universes created by visionary photographers, Ellen Von Unwerth and Amanda De Cadenet. With a series of bus shelter installations, ABSOLUT has leveraged the imagery of talent such as Kate Beckinsale, Zooey Deschanel & Ali Larter to transform these shelters into tactile installations for people to enjoy. Bringing to life the worlds that embody ABSOLUT “Lemon Drop,” Twist” and “Bloody,” the shelters (which will run until late December) use original seating, stunning colors and even tropical plant-life.

Outdoor advertisment created by TBWA, United States for Absolut, within the category: Alcoholic Drinks.

Would have been lovely to see those suspended 'egg' chairs here, but I guess we can't have everything. Great touch on dressing the roof though.

"Absolut LemonDrop" isn't nearly as innovative as they think it is. Time to move on.

Nice idea, but I suspect the chairs are a conceptual prop used only to photograph this -- and don't they call that "scam" hereabouts? Nothing survives in one piece for long at any bus shelter, not even a heavy duty iron post or lexan panels. Still...

That's it.

those are actually in place here in Chicago. Their campaign with the "upgraded shelters" all have the chairs still there. I have not yet sat on one, but I have heard they are very uncomfortable. Not just like somewhat uncomfy, but VERY.
