Vodka brand J.A. Baczewski created a short film, which really pulls on the heartstrings, about a 94-year-old man who is in the possession of a very old unopened J.A. Baczewski vodka bottle, which he wished to return to the legal heirs of the brand owners after stealing it during the second world war.
The polyester/labcoat clad investigative scienticians from Did I Believe It claim to have been helping you—yes you—think for almost 42 years. And, in what could be seen as New Zealand’s slightly more alcoholic answer to Look Around You, the visionary Silo theatre and the visionary 42 Below have joined forces to bring you a perfect theatrical/commercial muddle that aims to disseminate the silly, mad and historic facts about vodka. Ah, can you smell that? It’s art and commerce colliding. But not only are they helping you think, they’re also helping you win things. So in the spirit of weird, comical science edu-tainment that can be seen on the trailer here or the play’s Facetube page here, just come up with a completely nonsensical science-related question you would like answered and the weirdest effort will get one double pass to the show on Sunday 10 April. We’ve also got four very cool 42 Below gift packs (‘True Encounters of the Spirit of the 42nd Parallel) to give away.
