Absolut: Lemon Drop

Following a trailer airing over the summer on major networks, TBWA\Chiat\Day New York released its latest short film for Absolut this week titled Lemon Drop. The main character of the film, also named Lemon Drop, is played by Ali Larter of the NBC show Heroes and the movie series Resident Evil. Her character for the Absolut film was based on a Lemon Drop cocktail which is both sweet and sour, and the plot which never takes itself too seriously revolves around her using both sides of her personality to solve a caper involving missing kittens, an evil crooner, and a set of mysterious vials. The highly stylized film was directed by Traktor and can be seen at lemondrop-movie.com where it is accompanied by a downloadable movie poster and wallpaper. The film also stars Martin ‘Sensei’ Kove of the original Karate Kid.

Watch the 30 second TV Spot and the 10 minute Film.

I find it a pretty ugly artwork and she reminds me of Uma Thurman in Kill Bill.

Nice retro reference. Uneasy alliance between Photoshop smudged/filtered faces and real art. Would have preferred all drawing (or tracing) style.
