Dan Ackroyd is more than just an awful/terrific actor, he’s also a distiller of a top shelf vodka called Crystal Head. It’s the stuff that comes in a cool skull-shaped bottle.
Well, Mr. Aykroyd should be bummed today, because some 21,000 bottles have been stolen from a California warehouse. While the news is bad, his response to TMZ was excellent:
“My partners and I are sorry to lose this much vodka to theft and do not condone criminal activity in any fashion, but we are happy that some consumers will be afforded the opportunity of tasting it at significantly lower than retail price.”
That’s hilarious and shows that he’s one of the people who really “gets it.” His clever take on the situation also just made these lemons into lemonade (or Citron Crystal Skull), as the news is spreading like wildfire, propelled by the quote above. Heck, I just pitched in myself.
Anyway, there’s your yearly vodka post. We now return to our usual beer and whiskey programming…
