Who do I blame for your insipid advertising, Svedka?

It's true. Often, I am fake-hating on the ads I post here. Not so with Svedka vodka. As I've said, this witless drivel is the most asinine liquor advertising in history, and will continue to be the most asinine liquor advertising long after the SVEDKA_GRL (right) is a rusted pile of junk. And it keeps getting asininer! Here, we have an internet ad that when you click through, leads to blame.svedka.com. Do we actually find out any cleverly thought-out reason why Svedka wants us to blame them for our gay husbands? WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU THINK?

1. No, you're a bad ad trapped in a phone kiosk.
2. Six stories of STUPID.
3. THIS SVUCKS.

These ads must be working. None of my vodka-drinking friends drink it. I've never heard anybody order it. Come to think of it, I have no idea what the bottle looks like and don't recall ever seeing it in a liquor store or bar. … but the sexy robot with all the questions makes me thirsty.

Am I to blame for posting when I've got nothing to post? Blame Svedka.

Seeing a robotic Bjork would make any man gay.

i'd give bjork more credit than that.

Isn't (wasn't) a relatively good creative agency behind these?

Now it all makes sense…
"Alcoholics Anonymous member Lindsay Lohan has lined up Svedka vodka to sponsor her 21st birthday blowout in Las Vegas, a rep for the brand confirmed to us yesterday."

Perez Hilton is such a sellout (the ad i found and the one stacy saw both were on perezhilton.com). He outs his fellow gays and lets his sponsors give him money to make fun of us further. Boycott, anyone?

The original Idea came from Charlie White. Great artist. The client has then taken over the campaign and that is what you ave seen for two years.

Blame Svedka is right.

copyranter, you are being incredibly short sighted. The advertising for Svedka is probably the most innovative advertising there is today. It's the only truly forward thinking brand with marketing to match. Instead of focusing on the present it simply points to a future that could conceivably exist if present day things were taken to extremes- that's exciting to see, dont you wonder what the future might be like? At the very least, these ads are much better than the Absolut world of ridiculous things.
