Bob Bekian Directs Dan Aykroyd

Dan Aykroyd with Crystal Head Vodka

Loyal Studios in Santa Monica was the location as Bob Bekian produced and directed Dan Aykroyd in two commercials for the American Heart Association, and Aykroyd’s Crystal Head vodka brand.  Bekian produced the spots from start to finish, including developing the script, overseeing the crews and post production, and final delivery of the finished content on the project.

This is the 3rd time Bekian and Aykroyd have worked together in Bekian’s Loyal studios which operates in Santa Monica and Burbank California.

The AHA commercial was done with Aykroyd in character as Elwood Blues, complete with sunglasses and handcuffs.  “We were trying to emphasize the importance of the work being done by the American Heart Association, but also letting Dan have fun with one of the most iconic characters of our generation” Bekian says.

Crystal Head Vodka is a premium brand vodka which is dispensed in a unique crystal skull decanter. “As a vodka drinker myself, Crystal Head has a dual appeal as its really smooth to drink  and also has a fantastic decanter ” Bekian added. “Its great to work on a project that you endorse, and Dan’s enthusiasm about his Crystal Head is genuine and fun” Bekian said.
