The Green Fairy in Pop Culture

Posted By on Wed, Mar 5, 2014 at 2:03 PM

It's National Absinthe Day guys. You could head over to The Brooklynite and have a "death in the afternoon" with absinthe and champagne or you could celebrate absinthe in pop culture with your favorite movies, music, literature and television shows. Here a few of our favorites:

1. Eurotrip

2. Moulin Rouge

3. New Girl "Cabin"

"‘Yes,’ said the girl. ‘Everything tastes of liquorice. Especially all the things you’ve waited so long for, like absinthe.’"

5. Frank Ocean's "Pyramids" music video

6. Mad Men "Nixon vs Kennedy"
