From "Mickey's Photo Shoot", guest blog by David S. Grant:
Monday, March 5, 2012 Mickey was scheduled to be part of a photo shoot with Maxim magazine. The idea was to have several “Maxim” girls pose with Mickey. The shoot did not go as planned and was over in one hour. Below is a running diary of the events.
00:01 Mickey arrives wearing a white T-shirt, ripped jeans, motorcycle boots, and oversized aviators.
00:03 Darla, the girl running the shoot asks Mickey to put out his Camel cigarette. Mickey shrugs and continues smoking.
00:05 Two of the “Maxim” girls bring copies of “BLOOD: The New Red” over for Mickey to autograph. The girls are topless so Mickey also signs their breasts (despite not being asked). This frustrates Darla who brings over sanitizer to wipe of the girls then brings over an ashtray and waits for Mickey to put out his Camel.
00:10 Darla calls over Mickey. He removes his pants. Darla informs Mickey that it is not that type of photo shoot. Mickey shrugs puts his pants back on and walks over near the girls. Fantoni, the photographer, snaps two photos and then asks Mickey to remove his aviators. Mickey’s manager discusses this with Fantoni and it is decided the removal will not be necessary. Mickey calls for “five”, goes behind a screen and pops a Vicodin.
00:15 Back on set there is an issue with the lighting so everyone takes another five and Mickey finds a window to open (on the 10th floor) so he can smoke a Camel. Below on the street a group of girls spot Mickey in the window and begin screaming his name. Mickey closes the window and walks back to the set where the issue is no longer lighting, but rather how to have the girls not be overpowered by Mickey. Watching from the side are the twins from the new vampire series so Mickey approaches and then they disappear.
00:39 Waiting on Mickey.
