A Historic Collaboration: According to the Absolut Book: The Absolut Vodka Advertising Story, the campaign began when: “Over dinner one night, Warhol, who started his career as a commercial illustrator, tells, Michel Roux, a French-born liquor executive, that he’s enthralled by the artfulness of the Absolut bottle. He reminds him that while he doesn’t drink alcohol, he sometimes uses Absolut as a perfume. Warhol proposes painting his own interpretation of the Absolut Vodka bottle. When Warhol was finished, [Roux] loved it and thought it would make a great Absolut ad.” After the campaign, the brand collaborated with various artists who depicted Absolut bottles in unique and creative ways.
