Smirnoff: Infamous Since 1864

This is a commercial ad of Smirnoff. This commercial was released in October 2019 in United States. Under the title of “Smirnoff: Infamous Since 1864”.

It’s been snatched. Stashed. Traded in secret. Concealed. Used as barter. Trafficked. Widowed.

Divorced. Captured. Imprisoned. Exiled. Hidden. Fled from the Russian Government. Resurrected in Istanbul.

Brought down. Resurrected in France. Indebted. Resurrected in Poland. Prohibited. Resurrected in America. Disguised.

Ours is a vodka chosen by rascals and provocateurs. Theirs, and ours, is a timeless world of intrigue, of story, of delicious mischief. Of sharp, witty retorts, raised brows, red-lipped smirks, secret nods, and mysterious packages.

There are people, and there are characters. There are events, and there are stories. There’s fame, and there’s infamy. There’s vodka, then there’s Smirnoff.

It was done by 72andSunny, New York advertising agency. And, the commercial by Production Company is MJZ and is directed by Rupert Sanders.
