Crystal Head Vodka-Bottle Skull Gets Full Forensic Facial Reconstruction

By
He did too many shots.

In an effort to shed some light on the mystery man whose cranium now serves as the packaging for Dan Aykroyd's Crystal Head Vodka, a Scottish man named Nigel Cockerton — whom CNET notes has a Masters in Forensic and Medical Art from the University of Dundee — undertook a painstaking facial reconstruction. Cockerton documented the entire process, which included the addition of glass eyes, muscles, cartilaginous bits, and finally, skin and a natty hairdo. The finished dude looks ready to party and a little Hobbit-ish, not to mention a little bit rock-and-roll. Straight ahead, Mr. Crystal Head Vodka comes alive, muscle, skin, eyes, and all. (Just FYI, we're going to starting calling him Gary for the hell of it.)
