We reported earlier on the viral marketing campaign of Absolut vodka that put Kanye West in a cheesy infomercial-style ad. On a morning commute to Manhattan we noticed a poster ad had gone up, with only a subtle reference to Absolut hidden in a chunk of text. One passenger took out her camera phone and snapped a picture, while all other riders studied the poster looking confused. Nobody else knew what the ad was for and didn’t look like they would bother to find out. We’ll be curious to see how this campaign expands to reach a larger audience while promoting a product rather than consumer confusion.
