Some time ago the Absolut company conceived an ad campaign featuring the best artistes of the world, paid them handsomely and used their creativity to create Absolute themed artwork (photography etc.) using their signature style. So for example there could have been an Absolut Minshall featuring some carnival creation with an Absolute theme using Minshall's signature work (probably his puppets). This was a very tasteful and creative campaign.
Whomever decided to do this monstrosity obviously could not have had the approval of the Absolut company and was probably some absolutely untalented designer who came up with that eyesore. It's the worst representation of the pan I've ever seen and there is absolutely no redeeming value about it, neither in it's representation of the pan or for that matter the Absolut brand.
Perhaps someone should bring it to the attention of the Absolut who I'm sure would have something to say about having it removed since I doubt anyone here would do anything about it. I can't understand how or why a commercial entity would be allowed to put up what amounts to a billboard in a public space. Especially something as ugly as that.
The question is ,,was it willfuly or premeditatedly done.
This flagrant disrespect makes one wonder as to who is responsible for letting this go. When was this put up? Where is Pan Trinbago on this? Advertisers should not be permitted to disregard our culture, irrespective of how much dollars got spent. Somebody, please follow up on this!
