You've probably been surprised at some point in your life, but have you ever been part of a Smirnoff ICE Surpr-ICE? Probably not, … allow us to explain. Smirnoff ICE Surpr-ICEs are a fresh take on surprises: they are always positive, celebrate spontaneity and boldness, and in true Smirnoff ICE fashion, typically have a comedic twist.

From the everyday to the most epic, Smirnoff ICE promises to keep fans (21+) on their toes, popping up at the hottest festivals and events. While Smirnoff ICE will be delighting you all summer, they also encourage everyone to join in the movement,  Surpr-ICE one another, and remember to Just Add Smirnoff ICE.

To usher in its new era, the iconic brand "iced out" several famous U.S. landmarks this morning – Venice Beach Skate Park and Chicago's Riverwalk – letting the world know SMIRNOFF ICE SZN is upon us, and the ICY behavior is just gettin' started.

Later this week, Smirnoff ICE is bringing the chill to the desert as it formally launches its new initiative with a pop-up event at the most anticipated music festival of 2024. Featuring some of the ICEist mainstays in culture, festival-goers in Palm Springs have the chance to be one of the first to experience Smirnoff ICE Surpr-ICEs, which will include ICE – the kind that blings and the kind that melts - along with chances to win exclusive festival-inspired collectibles by designer Sue Tsai and much more. Everyone 21+ is welcome at the corner of Highway 111 and Oasis in Downtown Indio, California on  Friday, April 12, from 11 - 7 PM PT.

And if you can't make it, don't fret, all summer long Smirnoff ICE will host consumer giveaways to bring the chill for summer. For chances to win this summer, text "BLING" to "24272".*

Those who won't be in Palm Springs will still have plenty of opportunities for Smirnoff ICE Surpr-ICEs this summer, as the brand has big plans to show up at festivals and amphitheatres with a commitment to surpr-ICE our fans along the way. You never know where Smirnoff ICE Surpr-ICEs will show up next, all year long. So get ready to sing along and savor the flavor of Smirnoff ICE at the hottest music events in the country.

"One thing we can all agree on is life is better when there's a fun surprise added to the day so when we noticed life just isn't full of them anymore, we wanted to do something about it, " said Lisa Lee, Smirnoff ICE Brand Director. "So this summer, we're bringing Smirnoff ICE Surpr-ICES back in unexpected ways across culture to offer lighthearted fun to our fans regardless of whether they're attending a festival or hanging out at home with friends."

The campaign features actor, comedian, host and author Trevor Noah for the brand's latest national TV commercial and digital spots, set to hit screens on Monday, April 15.  The spots are directed by the legendary Spike Lee and feature Noah alongside actor Travis Bennett elevating Surpr-ICE to a new level through comedic takes on fun occasions from birthdays and brunch to being more engaged IRL for social moments with friends.

"I'm excited to be partnering with Smirnoff ICE again. We had a blast filming these spots and I'm honored to help introduce the cool, unexpected world of Smirnoff ICE Surpr-ICEs," said Trevor Noah.
