The World According to Smirnoff


The advertising at Smirnoff sure does seem to be geared towards them having some "truths" or "knowledge" about the world we live in (because they distill 10 Times?)...Purity, eugenics and an elite master race being thrown in the face of their own customer base...bottle after bottle. Seeing CLEARLY (sure we all do after a few shots of Vodka, right?), Perfection...





Or how about a Smirnoff bloodline to the ruling classes (or perhaps the spread of the RED Wave of Communism?).

Gotta love the families who spread poison to all the little people. Also cute is the double headed eagle on the Smirnoff bottle ;) Alcohol commercials are certainly an eye opener. The bee seems to creep in everywhere these days especially with media focus on celebs like Beyonce, who's affectionatly known as "Bee" or even Amy Winehouse with her "bee-hive hairdo" ;) A trailer for ABC's new show Pushing Daisy's [which incidentally is about a man who can kill people or bring them back to life by touching them-shades of Osiris?] features a bee flying around a flower at the end

its pretty long so fast forward. The original trailer showed the same bee flying around the network logo, but now I can't find it.

The Smirnoff eagle...these creeps love them some eagle. Clearly you see peoples true side whilst intoxicated, right? I stoppped drinking the hard stuff three years ago, and will not touch smirnoff again, especially after viewing these 'advertisements' or what ever they are. Most will view these 'ads' and see nothing that is in plain sight, more will purchase smirnoff on their next visit to an alcohol serving establishment or event. Nice finds here Todd, good work as usual. Peace, Joshua

The eagles seem to almost be seig-heil saluting.
Bees and Wells bring me back to Honeywell. i did an article cabout Beeman and Honeywell last month.
Vodka and spirit drinking is apparently endemic in many of the former soviet republics, though I doubt they quaff much Smirnoffal

perhaps he ruling red families are the bloodline. most of the elite back governments bent on Socialist policy- see None Dare Call It Conspiracy , from Aria Invicta.

Smirnoff … first company to do product placement 40 years ago in the Bond movies starting with Dr. No… faux Russian, similar trajectory to Bacardi … Smirnoff Ice drunken heavily in the movie Evil Alien Conquerors…

Nice input from everyone on these commercials.

I might have to come back to this another time.
