Dan Aykroyd has had 21,000 bottles of vodka stolen.
The huge haul of the 'Ghostbusters' star's own brand of Crystal Head Vodka were taken from a California warehouse recently, and while he's upset at his loss, he can still see a positive side to the incident.
He told gossip website TMZ: "My partners and I are sorry to lose this much vodka to theft and do not condone criminal activity in any fashion, but we are happy that some consumers will be afforded the opportunity of tasting it at significantly lower than retail price."
Dan's spirit -- which is a joint venture with artist John Alexander -- is inspired by the controversial archaeological mystery of 13 crystal skulls, which have been discovered in locations around the world and date between 5,000 and 35,000 years old. The skulls were supposedly polished into shape from solid quartz chunks over a period of several hundred years and give positive energy to whomever possesses them.
The brand's website states: "Crystal Head is vodka like no other, for a life like no other. An exploration of extraordinary people, places, and ingredients. Beginning with an archaeological mystery dating back thousands of years, we arrive at the deep, glacial waters of Newfoundland, Canada.
"We continue on to discover the unique crystals of Herkimer, New York before finally making our way into the hands of unique individuals like yourself."
The Los Angeles Police Department LAPD and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms are investigating the robbery.
