If you've been holding your breath since we posted the Ali Carter Lemon Drop Absolut Trailer July 1, exhale. We have the ten minute film. They've gone all the way retro, with badly edited cuts, hair in the gate and a soundtrack that is right groovy all the way through, and even made a very retro movie poster to fit with it.

The main character of the film, also named Lemon Drop, is played by Ali Larter of the NBC show Heroes and the movie series Resident Evil. Her character for the Absolut film was based on a Lemon Drop cocktail which is both sweet and sour, and the plot which never takes itself too seriously revolves around her using both sides of her personality to solve a caper involving missing kittens, an evil crooner, and a set of mysterious vials. The highly stylized film was directed by Traktor and can be seen at lemondrop-movie.com where it is accompanied by a downloadable movie poster and wallpaper. The film also stars Martin ‘Sensei’ Kove of the original Karate Kid.
