|ABSOLUT GUS VAN SANT is in the 8/00 issue of Maxim magazine (p. 159); it is very similar to the photo on page 72 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.
GUS VAN SANT, 46, is an American film director (Good Will Hunting). Reflected over and over again in a mirror, he's photographed holding an ABSOLUT ILLUSION 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 typical info printed at the bottom (including ©2000 and photograph by Annie Leibovitz).
This is the ninth ad in the ABSOLUT 20th ANNIVERSARY Series.
