Now Be Kanye - Sometimes when I'm at work sweating over some impossible deadline, I would daydream of being a rapper. My life would be filled with yachts, gold chains and girls wearing booty shorts. Yeah!
Now Absolut has something to help my dream come true. I found this small ad hidden in the personals section of the latest New York Magazine. Side-effects include inflated ego and temper tantrums.
A commercial was also created for this campaign and here are the credits (now if I can only find the spot).
