Wow. Hard to believe, but yes, that futuristic Barbie girl above is indie darling Zooey Deschanel, as photographed for the latest Absolut Vodka campaign.

Each photo, taken by fashion photographer Ellen Von Unwerth, is themed around a different vodka cocktail. Zooey’s, for example, is based on the Cosmopolitan cocktail:

In the ABSOLUT Cosmo ad, Deschanel adds a science-fiction flair to the traditional ABSOLUT® CITRON cocktail in a retro-hip yet modern lounge as she plays the role of a “cosmo”-naut.

Three other photos from the campaign feature Kate Beckinsale, focusing on cocktails Bloody Mary, Tonic Twist and Crush.

Personally I’d have liked to see Zooey in all four, but there ya go.

Just got back from the Gala Awards Ceremony for this year’s Absolut Dublin Gay Theatre Festival. The cast of Killed by Curriculum camped out in a corner of The Button Factory with our entourage (four people) and our free booze.

A lovely, lovely night. Not only did we get to perform a few scenes from Killed for a far bigger audience than the Teacher’s Club could ever have held, the play also scooped up two nominations. One for the Intercultural Dialogue Award and one for Best New Writing. Seanie Dunne really does have the Midas touch. Pictures of him strutting his stuff on stage to follow.
