Brooklyn bred and legendary director Spike Lee has teamed up with Absolut Vodka to pay homage to his hometown and give back in a very unique way.
The trendsetting Academy Award-nominated filmmaker has teamed with Absolute Vodka to design the fourth installment in the city-inspired bottle collection of the popular brand.
The bottle, which was created by Spike, shows a colorful depiction of the cornerstone of the Brooklyn community complete with a stoop similar to the one that he grew up on.
The bottle also includes an inscription to his beloved community, which includes nicknames on the steps of the stoop and a line from fellow Brooklyn resident, Lemon Anderson‘s ‘Love Letter to Brooklyn’ poem.
In addition to paying homage through the bottle collection, Lee has also dedicated $50,000 dollars of the vodka’s proceeds to go to Habitat for Humanity in New York City, as well as created a T-shirt with visual strategist Fuse Green, to celebrate Brooklyn Stoop Life.
Proceeds from both endeavors will benefit Habitat for Humanity in New York City, in an effort to give back to the Brooklyn community.
