Absolut Kramer. 
ABSOLUT (Mandarin Orange) is the newest ad in the ABSOLUT MANDRIN SERIES and can be found on page 193 of the 10/99 issue of Ocean Drive mag. It is very similar to the ABSOLUT MANDRIN ad, showing a bottle of Absolut Mandrin Vodka on a shiny blue surface, in a white spotlight, against a blue backdrop. However, it's the Absolut logo that's different and unique: across the bottom of the ad is the word ABSOLUT (in white), followed by a picture of a Mandarin Orange (about 50% larger than the word), then followed by a white period. This 1999 ad was photographed by Steve Bronstein.

ABSOLUT 19th is a very classic ad that has been around for quite some time. The ad shows an aerial view of the
"19th hole." In golf, there are only 18 holes.
Traditionally the '19th hole' is actually the clubhouse, where you can wind down with a drink (of Absolut) after a game.
Absolut Karaoke. 
ABSOLUT KARAOKE is a version of the "traditional" Absolut Vodka ad with the bottle in a bright spotlight, against a dark backdrop, and resting on a reflective surface. The variation here is unique: we see a close-up of the bottom half of the bottle and the view is so close that the dark background is off the page. Part of the bottle's message is colored in pink: "...ds of Southern Sweden. It has been produced at the famous old distilleries nea..." Part of the logo, ABSOLUT KA, is also pink.

Karaoke is the singing of the lyrics of a song to its instrumental version. The lyrics are displayed on a screen, with a moving portion, highlighted in pink, to follow as you sing along. Karaoke is a Japanese coined word. Kara means empty in English and oke is a kind of abbreviation for orchestra. Karaoke itself means "songs without vocals". In this ad, the Absolut advertisers apparently want us all to sing the praises of their product.

This 1997 European ad was previously published as a small ad in that year. I believe that this is the first full sized printing of the ad.
