Smirnoff Stampede

Smirnoff is presented as the vodka with a reputation for purity in “Stampede”, a television commercial directed by Fredrik Bond. A woman rides on a white horse loaded with Smirnoff vodka, surrounded by a herd of wild white horses, pursued by a black wolf across arctic tundra. A dark cloud infiltrates the herd, symbolising the effect of the wolf’s presence, only to be seen off by the rider. “Purity must be protected”.
