Absolut Karen O

Karen O appeared on the Jackass 3D soundtrack last year, and the band’s “Heads Will Roll” was mashed and butchered with “Thriller” on Glee. Otherwise we haven’t heard much lately from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and/or Karen O. Now we know of at least one thing she’s up to: modeling. That’s her in the scanned Absolut ad above, wearing a far more tame outfit than usual. And, according to the behind-the-shoot video, she really wanted to work with photographers Warren du Preez and Nick Thornton, making this ad more of artistic collaboration than usual. Thornton and du Preez are well-known fashion photographers and the directors behind UNKLE’s “Follow Me Down” clip. Watch Karen O and the photographers talk about the shoot below:

Has anyone tried Wild Tea Absolut? It sounds like it’ll taste like Celestial Seasonings Wild Berry Zinger tea.
