For those who follow the United States Emmy Awards, they may still have not noticed that Sky Lanterns are a featured part of one of the advertisements nominated for an Emmy for best advertisement. For those who follow the awards, they typically follow the big ones such as best drama, best comedy and best lead and supporting actor type awards. However, the Emmy Awards are very detailed, offering awards for best voice over, sound effects and many other different facets of television.

That said, one of the nominations for best television advertisement is for Absolut Vodka and the commercial is absolutely breathtaking and certainly worthy of winning. In this commercial, one of the words spelled out is done so with a launching of Chinese Hanging Lanterns . While has no affiliation with Absolut or this advertisement, we cannot help but point out that this is perhaps one of the most brilliant ways of using Chinese Hanging Lanterns that we have seen. This launch is an excellent example of how Chinese Hanging Lanterns help feed the creative spirit. The video has gone viral on YouTube as well and can be viewed here: (fast forward to 42 seconds if you want to skip right to the sky lantern part)

Absout Vodka Commercial on YouTube

This advertisement has been done in many different languages and speaks of the philosophy of Absolut Vodka. The beauty behind the entire thing is timeless and appeals to people in different nations and different ages as well. The inclusion of floating lanterns as part of this advertisement as well as part of the vision of one of the artists who was hired to be included shows how sky lanterns are truly a beautiful thing that was expertly captured on film for this campaign.

For the director and the artist of this well conceived advertisement, we salute your efforts. The advertisement is simply mesmerizing and even if we weren’t in the sky lantern business, we would be pulling for you to win the Emmy for best advertisement. With such international appeal, it is possible this advertisement could be up for other similar awards in other countries around the world as well.

We can tell that the artist who used these floating lanterns for his portion of the advertisement did so in a safe manner, launching them under low wind conditions and in an open area. However, we are only hopeful that the artist used completely environmentally friendly sky lanterns in seeing his artistic vision come to life. Only has a full line of 100% wire free lanterns available and we are the only vendor of Chinese Hanging Lanterns in the UK who does not stock the older Chinese Hanging Lanterns which have wire supports at all.  We are serious about our commitment to the environment and the preservation of livestock and realize our livelihood depends on us preventing as much damage to the earth as is possible. Other companies may offer wire-free, we are the only ones completely wire free.
