Vodka from The Great Beyond

Update!  Someone did some digging and came up with some pretty compelling evidence that it's the real thing and not a publicity stunt.  Read more here.

My BFF Lisa sent me a link to this video that shows Dan Akroyd pimping a vodka that is inside of a crystal head.  There's some back story to this that's explained in the video below.

I'm actually kind of at a loss for what to even say about this.  Dan Akroyd keeps looking at me like he's channeling P.T. Barnum.  However, he's also been involved with the occult for quite some time.  Once, he even made the Statue of Liberty walk through New York to a catchy 50's tune. 

Here comes Crystal Head Vodka, a diamond-filtered vodka or a very dry infomercial to pimp Ghostbusters 3.

Ahhhh, diamond filtered vodka. I never understood that concept. Usually spirits are filtered through charcoal, ideally activated charcoal, which acts like a micro-seive to polish or remove some of the harsher elements of the left over heads and tails... but diamonds adsorbs nothing {yes, adsorbs, not absorb]. So am sure they are industrial diamonds, but they do nothing. but hey, it's all marketing right...

xoxo, dahlin.

I found a site that was selling it for $46.99, but it still looked sketchy. How trippy to see that it's real! :D Though I wish that the review was a bit more thorough. Clearly, you need to step in and take care of that.

It's not filtered through diamonds.

It's filtered through HERKIMER diamonds, which are quartz.

Oh, that *really* changes things. Because quartz is a great way to filter stuff.

Wait.

What?

Remember what diamonds are made of?



Coal!
