Sometimes you hear great stories at preview events. Like how at the THQ thing yesterday, I was talking to journalist to the stars Paul Semel right after the Gary Busey videos for Saint's Row 2 aired, and he said something approximating the following:
"I was interviewing him once and asked him, what's the craziest thing you ever snorted cocaine off of? He couldn't think of anything, but afterwards his publicist called me and said, you know that question? And I thought, oh man, they want me to pull the question. But no, they said that Gary remembered he had a better answer for me."
Here's what ran in Maxim:
What was the freakiest thing you ever snorted blow off of when you were a prominent coke fiend?
I came home one day, took off my windbreaker, and three bindles of cocaine fell to the floor. Well, my dog, Chili, who has short hair, came in and laid on her back with her legs in the air, and she rubbed all my cocaine on her back and side. I yelled, "No, Chili! No" So I got a straw, and I started brushing her hair and snorting where I saw cocaine. Back, butt, side -- not a spot was left. It took me 25 minutes to snort all the cocaine the dog had on her coat. The fringe benefits of this were that the fleas, the dog hair, the mud, and the sweat went in my nose, too. It's not a good flavor coming off the dog.
Two more Saint's Row 2 teaser videos starring the legendary actor and former prominent coke fiend can be found all over the Internet today.
