Either Akroyd has gone quite mad, or is a good businessman.

Or both.

I'm going with both.

Drinking skull vodka apparently makes you old, fat, myopic and incapable of landing good film roles anymore. I'll pass.

While your statement made me chuckle, I think that's a pretty funny attempt at viral marketing. He doesn't even talk about the vodka until the clip is almost over.

If it includes being richer than hell and married to Donna Dixon (former miss USA), then I wouldn't.

Apparently some people (http://www.randi.org/site/index.php/swift-blog/368-woo-in-review-crystal-head-vodka.html) think Akroyd's vodka "tastes like acetone."

What do you expect from filtered potato juice? Buy a bottle, pour out the soviet sauce, clean the bottle throughly and use it to decant the creature.

"Hey Dan, I'll give you $25 000 000 to promote our new vodka"
"(contemplating financial and social circumstances) 'Sure'"

He's not being foolish, he's just trying to secure his nestegg.

So.... when did Dan Akroyd lose his god damn mind?

I thought that was the most entertaining sales pitch I'd listened to for a long time. I wish all attempts to sell me something were done with that much flair.

John Cleese's schweppes commercials were quite amusing.

Danny may be fat and old but his house of blues radio program is good. Maybe he's not acting because someone is paying him never to do another blues brothers movie. I know I would. I'd pay him never to play a marine band special 20 again. Maybe if he auditioned with a regular marine band 1896 or a deluxe I'd consider letting him play it in public.

Besides, Danny is still on the outs for flashing masonic hand signs on the old saturday night live program.

He's just so back and forth and all over the map......he's hard to peg.

He'll do crap like My Girl 2, Nothing But Trouble and Coneheads within the same year as doing Chaplin and (well...I liked it) Sneakers.

I have to agree. Reminds me a bit of the first Old Spice commercial that Bruce Campbell did (I've got a thread about it around here somewhere):

Even though Old Spice is excellent, that ad in the barbershop with the "Alpha Male" type annoyed the shit out of me.

You're a real 'glass is half empty' kind of guy, aren't you ?

Fun Fact: Dan is reprising his role as Ray Stantz in the upcoming "Ghostbusters" video game, along with Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, and Harold Ramis.

No word yet if Dan will hock his glorified nail polish remover in the game.

Just disappointed in Akroyd lately. Changing Places was a really great comedy movie and Akroyd was great in it. Why can't he make stuff that good anymore?

He has a double role as the Marshmallow Man too.

Something else has been bothering me that makes that first video a bit too much for me to stomach. Dan is apparently a conspiracy nut; which I must say is disappointing. It's like finding out the otherwise likable guy is a secret $cientologist.

Conspiracy theories are for people with children's brains. They are sometimes tempting because of the need to believe, but for those who carry on believing far beyond the point of reasoning, I must say I cannot hold any lasting amount of respect for.

Yes, but you're talking about someone who spends his life pretending to be other people and trying to get other people to suspend their disbelief to share the illusion.

Good point.
