I’ll admit my headline might be a bit on the exaggerated side, but what “beef” doesn’t include a little exaggeration here and there. Even if it is only between vodka companies and not rappers. But earlier today I was on my Facebook page which happens to be littered with liquor ads, probably thanks to my numerous Lushworthy posts, and I saw this ad from Pinnacle which is a pretty obvious shot at Smirnoff and their new whipped vodka. The Pinnacle ad reads, “Pinnacle is the ORIGINAL whipped vodka. At 70 proof it kicks the pants off the 60 proof competition. Click LIKE if you agree.” Can somebody say shots fired.
I have a personal favorite among the two, but I won’t be sharing that 😉 But I did pair both Pinnacle and Smirnoff against each other in specific categories. Check it out below.
Better Spokesperson: Smirnoff (Now this one’s an obvious no brainer especially due to the fact that Pinnacle doesn’t have a spokesperson and Smirnoff has Amber Rose.)
Most Facebook Likes: Pinnacle (Pinnacle has Smirnoff by almost 100,000 Likes. Yikes!)
Most Twitter Followers: Pinnacle (Okay, in actuality Smirnoff has about 20,000 more followers than Pinnacle but Pinnacle’s following me on Twitter so they win by default.)
Better Bottle: Tie (I love the fact that Pinnacle’s bottle is blue, but the bottle for Smirnoff Whipped has a nice elegant look to it so I’m at a loss.)
Now this Smirnoff vs. Pinnacle beef has enough steam behind it to turn into something far worse than the East Coast vs. West Coast rivalry of the 90’s so I hope both parties keep things cordial.
