I need some help from the creative minds out there...

Postby tuff_gong » Thu Nov 02, 2006 1:47 am

For my fraternity's ultra late halloween party this year, our entire pledge class gets divided up into 4 groups. Each group gets assigned a shot and has to build a shot booth in the bar we are renting out. My group is Absolut Disaster. Some of the others are Nutty Irishmen, Bob Marley, and Royal Flush. Everyone has to build a booth, as well as dress up in costumes.

Our group was thinking about going with some sort of natural disaster theme, like maybe building a gigantic volcano, but besides that were not so sure.

Any ideas for Absolut Disaster?

Absolut Disaster sounds like some kind of European europop band, if that helps. ;-D

I googled "Absolute Disaster" and go this:

So there ya go, dress up as Tony Blair; you just need to wear a suit. Bring a musket too. When people ask who you're supposed to be, say "I'm an absolute disaster: Tony Blair with a musket!"

That'll show 'em.

Since it's Absolut as in the vodka, and not absolute, I'd say go with that theme. What's an Absolut disaster? Total chaos, but in a good way. Loud music, people dancing, hookers, people having sex, etc. ;-D

Well the "Absolut" ad campaign, which was popular in magazines when I was in college, but doesn't seem so much anymore, was always "ABSOLUT ______." The blank being a multitude of things featuring the distinctive Absolut vodka bottle in precarious situations.

You can see them all here.

For "ABSOLUT DISASTER." you can parody the ad with, say, t-shirts, each of you depicting a natural disaster; floods, forest fires, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions... man made disasters like a mushroom cloud or some sort of engineering disaster... and perhaps fake disasters, like alien attacks (lifted from War of the Worlds or Independence Day maybe) or even a picture of Paris Hilton (or your "favorite' politician).

From here, the possibilities are endless; t-shirts with pictures of professors, or friends, local jokes or the school mascot. Pictures of a dumb situation, like a guy falling off a house or a skateboarding accident that results in a nut-plant.

And underneath everyone's shirt it just says "ABSOLUT DISASTER."

It's clever, believe me.

I'm curious, why did they split you up into 4 groups?
When I pledged it was all about unity. My pledge class did everything together.

Who picked the themes?
I would think that Sex on the Beach would be used.

I'm thinking of different disasters that can be used and which ones could have a stand built around them.
You can use a hurricane. Get a giant fan and put it near the booth. Maybe you can have the roof of your booth blown off and puddles of water on the floor. Then give your shots out in glasses marked "courtesy of FEMA".

Basically we were split up so there will be 4 different shot boothes for people to go to throughout the night. And apparently they try to pick differnent shots every year, and yes, sex on the beach was used last year.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, they have been pretty good so far. Keep 'em comin! ;-D
