Last Spring Absolut Vodka devoted a small part of it’s global budget to film a mini documentary about Southern HipHop phenomenon Cee Lo Green.

To celebrate 125 years of existence, The CocaCola company decided to turn its Atlanta headquarters into the largest single building illumination in the world.

Atlantabased rapper and avantegarde musician, Cee Lo Green, continues to push the musical envelope.

The rich visual ride takes full advantage of Columbu’s flash, signature cutout style. Not to mention, how well it merges with the song’s edgy subject matter. The perfect marriage between concept and execution, we think. But don’t just take our word, check it out for yourself!
