Dan Aykroyd was not too happy during an interview with Ellen Fanning from The Observer Effect. Dan was reportedly overheard on the streets outside the studio where the interview took place saying, “f…ing hosebag” about Fanning. What had the interviewer done to enrage the wrath of the popular actor?

Ellen Fanning apparently would not let Dan Aykroyd discuss his new business venture, which is the marketing of the Crystal Head vodka. The SBS talk show host had already partially conducted the interview which consisted of Dan Aykroyd discussing his childhood and career; however, the interview turned sour quickly.

According to a SBS representative, “(Aykroyd) was welcome to mention his vodka, but advertorials are not part of the show’s format.”

Present reports claim that Dan Aykroyd had intended to have the vodka market line discussed, which Ellen Fanning was not openly encouraging. Dan apparently ripped off his sunglasses and proceeded to mention the full line of products included within the Crystal Head vodka brand before storming out of the interview.

Shine Australia and SBS are joint producers of The Observer Effect where both reached out to the Executive Producer of the show, Paul Steindl, and requested that an official apology be publicly sent to the famous actor. However, both Paul Steindl and Ellen Fanning refused to issue the requested apology. Though the exact circumstances surrounding this infamous situation have yet to be released it appears that Steindl and Fanning think that the apology should come from Dan Aykroyd instead of from them.

While this outburst may seem bad for business, Dan Aykroyd is a beloved Hollywood icon and his fans are vocally supporting him through Twitter.

Though the interview with Ellen Fanning from The Observer Effect is not available, the following interview shows Larry King discussing the vodka line with Dan Aykroyd.

    The reason most entertainers go to these interviews is to plug some pet project they have. If she knew what she was doing, she would have known that.

    200,000,000 people drop the f-bomb every day. Why is this news?

  • bruce

    most people cant even afford to buy Dans vodka. it runs about $50.00 – $60.00 for a small skull bottle and you can buy a real russian vodka in a larger size and higher rating for about $30.00 less. what a rippoff!

    Marketing genius! I had no idea he made vodka and because of this dirt bag interviewer, now I do.

    Love you Danny!!!

  • aaron

    Dan is correct in peddling Vodka. America will need it after Rodeo Clown finishes destroying the Economy.

    Promoting alcohol should be, like cigarettes, illegal. The cost to society and families is staggering. Good on ya, girl.

    she should not have tried to push him around—he’s a blues brother

    Are you kidding me – a REPORTER with concerns about editorial honesty, too funny as they use him to sell add space to pay her salary.

  • MissDiscipline

    Celebrities only go on these kind of shows to promote a movie or something they are doing. Why else would they bother?

  • cathy

    why is this a big deal, people need to get a life and worry about important stuff going on– like Obambaie care, do you want to wait years for operations that are needed now, well that’s what you’re going to get

    • bob

      You have been drinking Republican BS again. It’s a drink that can’t be trusted.

  • bob

    Why do you think these celebs go out to be interviewed. They are always pushing a project or in this case a product. Anything Dan says out on the street in no one’s business and shouldn’t be printed.

  • J Fox

    Dropped “F-Bomb” AFTER the interview. This is not news-worthy, it’s called freedom of speech. Who cares if an adult uses profanity off camera?

    • J Fox

      And another thing, I use profanity all the time. Even around small children. Nothing wrong with that. The little brats need to learn our world is cold and hard place. So if Dan wants to drop the f-bomb, let him drop it anywhere he wants. Anywhere!

  • Dan Foley

    Piss off ms Fanning . Dan Ackroyd is such a great actor. It’s on you ms Fanning to tell Dan Ackroyd you are a inept fool. And Dan pour me cold shot of your new vodka !!!!!

    • Da Oscars

      A “great” actor? I take it you only watch cartoons! I’ve seen more impressive performances out of fence posts.

  • T

    Most interviews with celebrities are done to promote new films, or projects the actors are working so how is “commercialism” taboo?! Dan Aykroyd has had a stellar career and film and television and has found a new passion. The lead in questions could have been “So Dan, what have you been up to lately?” See how easy that was, instead of pressing the issue of a potential remake or new installment of Ghostbusters! Of course when Hollywood runs out of ideas they like to take great films and put “a new coat of paint on them.” The producers of The Observer Effect should issue the apology directly to Aykroyd and consider terminating or at least not renewing Steindl and Fanning’s contracts. Obviously, neither of them are cut out for this line of work.

    if dan was nice enough to give her a interview that the least she should of done was let him talk a little about the vodka. what would this company now do when movie stars will not deal with them dan is loved. to the interviewer get on your knees and say your sorry you were wrong to be such tight lipped

    • Oh Please Fool

      “Nice enough?” That’s like saying, “If the prostitute was nice enough…” He was prostituting, fool. They should have told Danny boy to take his vodka and put it where the sun don’t shine!

      • Pablo Cervantes

        Really? So, just how do you think these shows pay their guests? Are you so simple as to think it is simply a check? Quite often, there are negotiations involved allowing the guest to shill their next movie, show or in this case, his business venture. I could explain it to you all day…but I can’t make you understand. Heck, the Aykroyd could have planned it all from the beginning.

  • Peter Mosen

    I know Dan fairly well and I know it takes a lot to get him pissed! I believe(although I have not spoken to him since this event)that they asked him for an interview. Since he is in Australia to promote his Crystal Head Vodka (which is excellent by the way) he would be discussing his product on the air. During the interview,I don’t think that they would let him speak about his product. If I had traveled thousands of miles to make appearances to promote my product, meeting fans for hours at a time, I’d get pissed if an interviewer refused to let me speak about the reason I was visiting! The station and interviewer should apologize for leading him on to get the interview, then not let him have his say! It is an interesting and informative story behind the “skull” and the production of the vodka, which I believe to be the best and purist on the market! All my best to you Dan for not going off on her on the air!!! (Now that’s control)

  • YEAH1

    Maybe they should change the name of “Crystal Head” vodka to “DikHead” Vodka. It fits Dan better. When is he moving back to Canada? Soon?

  • Pablo Cervantes

    And once again it is proven…there is NO bad publicity. It’s equally possible the entire spat was planned as a publicity stunt.

  • Aristocrat

    Crystal Head Vodka tastes like sewage. There. I said it.
