Inspired by the success of Radio head’s use of Brent Spiner to promote their OK Computer album, Svedka vodka has turned to the world’s first spokesbot – SVEDKA_grl - to market their growing line of imported vodka. Barfly_sez_e-ok!
The Swede’s choice of a robot came after they scoured the country American-Idol style for a native inhabitant that could pitch the product to the U.S. Market. Realizing that the most charismatic people in the entire country were either ABBA members or those chicks from Ace of Base, the Swedes did what any rational nation would do: came up with a fake robot to sell their vodka.
According to the company’s website their strategy worked: Svedka is the fastest growing Vodka in the United States. “We feel that we’ve tapped into an urge shared by many U.S. residents” a spokesperson for the company said. “To better deny the fact that they are sexually attracted to a robot, Americans must drink more vodka.”
Barfly was walking the streets the other day and SVEDKA_grl winked at us from the side of a bus. Going with their futuristic theme, the ad claimed that Svedka was voted the best vodka of 2033. We got our crystal martini glass and peered into the progression of drinking in the future.
2009 - Finland's glaicers have melted due to global warming. Finlandia's vodka infused with drowned polar bear fails to take off. There is an opening for another Scandinavian nation to dominate the drinking world.
2015 – Drunk hover-boarding becomes a ticket-worthy offense.
2022 – Svedka becomes even more popular when the tasty Soylent Green-tini is created. Sip, have some fun with the furniture, and don’t dare ask what’s in it!
2029 – Skynet has one too many and fights the humans. Much wackiness ensues.
2033 – Thirsty Terminators and the few surviving human-slaves vote Svedka to be number one. They have to. SVEDKA_grl is their luxurious and un-merciful queen.
