Re: Kalashnikov Vodka - Not just an appropriation of a known brand name. Apparently, in Russia, it's common for famous people to partner with a distillery to release a vodka that they endorse (in return for a handsome cheque, I assume). And Kalashnikov Vodka is indeed endorsed by Mikhail Kalashnikov, inventor of the AK-47.

Re: Phonebox/Kayak - That looks like a BT (British Telecom) phonebox, and England certainly did have floods resulting in 4-5ft water a couple of times in the last few years. So it's entirely possible that it's real.

Re: Phone box underwater - this is almost certainly not photoshopped. Last summer we (the UK, can tell from the BT phone box) had some incredibly severe flooding, which was probably when this photo was taken.
