A Creative Review: Wodka
Welcome back to A Creative Review with James Cooper. Today Coop gets zetetic about a recent ad for Wodka.
The job of any billboard - of any ad - is to get noticed. And these days, to get talked about.
This piece for Wodka, the Polish word for vodka, is doing a pretty good job on both accounts. It went up around the time we were all bricking it about Kim Jong whatshisname sending over a nuke. Nukes are pretty serious business. This client has their product looking like a nuke. That’s pretty out there.

When you also take the fact that they are using an actual picture of the Korean leader, I’m assuming his agent didn’t sign a release for that, you have something pretty remarkable. Throw in a cat and well, you’ve got your (nuclear) bases covered.
On the Wodka site you can create your own billboard. So if you think you could do better go for it. These guys certainly are!
