Smirnoff may have ties with Russia, but that doesn’t mean the vodka brand helped get Donald Trump elected!
The internationally famous company, which began with a distillery in Moscow, poked fun at its roots in a cheeky new ad campaign poking fun at the FBI investigation into Russian collusion in the 2016 election.

“Made in America, but we’d be happy to talk about our ties to Russia under oath.”
LOLz, even Vladimir Putin‘s gotta laugh at that one!
A spokesperson for the British company Diageo, which owns the vodka brand, said the ad is “a wink and a nod to current affairs” — as Trump now says he’s willing to testify under oath about his Russia ties.
We’ll drink to that! Mostly because we’d prefer to be in a giant vodka haze than see Trump get away with everything…
