Creative idea explanation: It is generally perceived, that vodka is getting better and purer with each distillation cycle. Amundsen is the only six times distilled vodka on the market. Rather than long explanations we created very simple visual riddle that illustrated how one can reach perfection in exactly six subsequent steps. We translated these six steps into small changes in facial features of world's dictators with unexpectedly good result. Using portraits of world's dictators as a topic was linked to high visibility, engagement and increased motivation to look closely and solve the riddle.
