I love the comic brilliance of Dan Aykroyd. I have such fond memories of watching him act on Saturday Night Live and in films such as Ghost Busters and The Blues Brothers.

And then my mind was blown. He is so much more.

My flat mate introduced me to this man’s passion for the paranormal and love for conspiracy theories. He’s even a Hollywood spokesperson for The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

Did you know Dan Aykroyd made vodka?

This video was the sole reason we bought Crystal Head Vodka. We just could not contain our mirth. The bottle is now sitting on our bookcase, and the vodka is actually rather tasty.

For all you Netflix members, there’s an interview-posing-as-documentary on Netflix Streaming called “Dan Aykroyd Unplugged on UFOs” that is just as hilarious as any UFO believer raving on about the topic—except this is Dan Aykroyd being serious, which makes it even more funny to me. The description on Netflix reads: “Skeptics beware!” So obviously, skeptics should grab the popcorn and enjoy this failure of a documentary. I can’t even describe the terrible narration by the interviewer, cheap camcorder production value, and the graphics. Glorious.

I think Aykroyd might just be the most entertaining rambler of all time:

Yeah I’ve seen a lot of interviews with Aykroyd on ghosts and UFOs and such, but his passion for the supernatural is part of what made the writing in Ghostbusters so flipping awesome so I can forgive it. He may be a bit of a nutter but he’s not hurting anybody and he’s hilarious so he can be a nutter if he wants.

I don’t respect his opinions, but I love the guy.
