The first ever collaboration of many between Absolut and China artists is revealed with the unveiling of the Absolut 72Bian, the name taken from a phonetic translation of the chinese word ‘变‘, which means change. Used to symbolise the chinese mythical character of the Monkey God, who can morph himself into 72 different changes. The limited Absolut bottle design is sadly, not much different, save for a printed cartoonish interpretation of the Money God. Interesting?.. barely… Ad campaign? Forgettable… Ticking the Chinese marketing box? Absolut-ly!

Scottish brewery BrewDog has reclaimed the world record for the strongest beer in history with a 55% alcohol beer which it has named “The End of History.” Only 11 bottles will be available, and each bottle will come inside a stuffed animal – seven Stoats will be available at GBP500 and four grey squirrels at GBP700, making it also the most expensive beer in history. That’s USD$1000 a bottle!
Brand Gurus will be the first to point out, logos are just a representation of a brand, never the full story. Sure you can take the ‘petroleum’ out of your name, and put everything in lower caps so its friendly. You can even introduce a big green helios and say you are going BIG into green power.
And then the oil that you are still sucking out of the earth leaks into the ocean. And Greenpeace launches an all out attack on you for your recent oily predicament, causing immeasurable harm on the environment. Seems like its all coming full circle.
