Last Night: Dan Aykroyd Signs Skulls in Scottsdale
It's no surprise when a current sensation like Lady Gaga or Robert Pattinson (if only!) shows up to swarming mobs of fans. But the stars of yesterday can also draw packed houses -- if they've got a cult following. And they put out this wacky infomercial.
Over 500 fans flooded the parking lot outside Sportsman's Fine Wines in Scottsdale last night just for a chance to get their heads signed by legendary actor, musician, winemaker and former Blues Brother Dan Aykroyd -- their Crystal Heads, that is. After creating his own wine label, Aykroyd recently ventured into the hard booze biz, aiding in the creation of a vodka that's made with "pure Newfoundland glacial pool water, and peaches and cream corn mash."
And because Aykroyd seems as interested in paranormal phenomena as his character Ray Stantz did in the Ghostbusters franchise, his $50 Crystal Head Vodka comes in this Bruni art glass bottle, modeled after the supposed "13 Crystal Skulls."

Those who walked away with signed memorabilia were pleased with their spoils. Maybe they'll keep them forever, maybe they'll become family heirlooms. Or maybe you too can own a glass head signed by Dan Aykroyd on E-bay or Craigslist today.
