Dan Aykroyd has 21,000 Bottles of Vodka Stolen, Shows Why He’s So Cool

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…

    I know where the robbers are keeping the vodka. They are keeping in that same cave they used in the Great Outdoors that is being guarded by this! BIG BEAR BIG BEAR!

    I think he should be introduced at speaking engagements as “THE GREATEST LIVING BLUES BROTHER!”

      That pretty much sums it up.

    That’s good to see from him. I honestly was losing respect for him recently after some documentary he did about UFOs where he just sounded like a complete loony.

      Oh, I think he’s nuts, but he’s a cool guy. Same as with his acting – he’s awful, but great all at once.
