Binnys, Bruce Willis and Jessica Altieri of WineChannelTV
I waited over an hour to see Bruce Willis at Binny’s in LakeView, Chicago. In the heat. All I wanted to get on camera was him saying “Yippee Kay Yay” and some classic Pulp Fiction Lines.
Instead, the audience of 400+ disorganized people got 30 seconds of Bruce up above the crowd saying hello and trying to pronounce “to your health” in Polish(Na zdrowie) since he is the new face of Sobieski Vodka, a premium Vodka from Poland. Well, I’m Polish, and sorry to say you butchered it Bruce!
In the time I did see him, Bruce looked like he hasn’t even aged since his Pulp Fiction days and is rocking and rolling not only in Hollywood, but in the beverage world.
Besides being a co-founder of Planet Hollywood with Stallone and Arnold, Bruce owns a portion of Sobieski & signed on to the team in 2009. He’s been taking an active part in promoting Sobieski online thru his “Ideas” videos like Vodka Thursday, and you can even “Ask Bruce” on the Sobieski Vodka site about anything…I want to know what’s your favorite WINE! Since Bruce was born in Germany, he’s got to have some favorites from there.
And did I mention that I saw more people, specifically women, drinking Champagne while waiting to see him than the actual vodka?
Watch WineChannelTV waiting to get a glimpse of Bruce, and let me know what you think!
