|ABSOLUT GORE VIDAL is in the 8/00 issue of Interview magazine (p. 27); it is very similar to the photo on page 76 of the 7/00 issue of Vanity Fair mag, which was part of the Absolut 20th Anniversary Collection. Since this single ad does not have a traditional logo near the bottom of the page, I've listed it under the name of the person featured in the ad.
GORE VIDAL, 75, is a famous American author and social critic who's seen contemplating his next work, while holding on to a dictionary with an ABSOLUT DEFINITION ad.
This ad does have 4 differences from the original: it lists the person by name, it lists his fave ad, it states that this is "One in a series of 20 portraits celebrating ABSOLUT VODKA's 20th anniversary.", and it has the ypical info printed at the bottom (including ©2000 and photograph by Annie Leibovitz).
This is the eleventh ad in the ABSOLUT 20th ANNIVERSARY Series.
