This new advert by Smirnoff titled ‘Infamous since 1864’ tells us the secret story of bottles of vodka being smuggled from person to person.
The covert operation spans the globe with a man fleeing on a train from Russia. A bottle is then hidden in America, exiled in France and traded in secret. The commercial concludes by the bottle being infiltrated in Hollywood and its current whereabouts are known.
