Dan Aykroyd is coming to town this holiday season, and he wants to sign your bottle of his booze.

The Ghostbusters star is the man behind Crystal Head Vodka, which he'll promote with a stop Friday at the Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection Store at 180 W. Girard Ave. He'll sign bottles of his vodka from 4  to 6 p.m.

Bottles must be purchased at the event to be signed. According to a release, Aykroyd will also sign one personal item per person in addition to the bottle.

Aykroyd got involved with the distribution of Patron Spirits in Canada in 2005. The Coneheads star launched Crystal Head Vodka in 2008, selling it  in its familiar skull-shaped bottle.

The vodka is manufactured in Newfoundland, Canada, from a type of corn known as "peaches and cream," according to a release. Another variety, Crystal Head Vodka Aurora, is made with English wheat, and will be available at the signing.

Aykroyd has something of a history with Philadelphia. He's a star of the Philly-set comedy classic Trading Places, and he  donated money to the family of Robert Wilson III, a police officer killed in the line of duty in 2015. Aykroyd was signing bottles of Crystal Head Vodka at the Philadelphia Flower Show that year, which prompted him to announce the donation.
