An unforgettable night, full of stars, celebrities, and glamour. A consummate host, in the hilarious form of Adam DeVine, star of Modern Family and Workaholics. An unprecedented affair, the first in the Awards' history where men and women competed evenly for the same awards. And for the first time ever, Velare was there.
May 7 could have been like any other night in Hollywood: elegant ladies in the finest dresses, men of culture in tuxedos like night-black armor. But at the Shrine Auditorium, something rather more special was taking place: the 26th annual MTV Movie Awards. Velare wouldn't miss it: we're not the type of pass up a party in evening wear.
Our very own epitome of elegance, Dennis Robinson, was on hand to witness the spectacle, well-accoutered in black tuxedo with pin-striped pocket square. While always capable of finding a party wherever he might go, he was also tasked with sharing Velare luxury e-liquid with the famous vapers (and vapers-yet-to-be) at this star-studded event.
While host Adam DeVine donned horns and Rebel Wilson donned a teapot for the opening Beauty and the Beast musical number, Mr Robinson rubbed shoulders with celebrities from every corner of the entertainment world.
Stars from every walk of fame were on hand, including singer Brian Justin Crum, whose rendition of Radiohead's Creep has graced the air of the Velare offices for over a year. Casual in a palm tree shirt and some beautiful amber jewelry, Crum was thrilled to see Velare's special sliding presentation box.
Though his breakout performance in 13 Reasons Why was too television to be eligible for an award, Christian Navarro was on hand; we're confident he'd have given Emma Watson's performance in Beauty in the Beast a solid run.
New Orleans Saints linebacker James Anderson was in attendance, as well, with the look of a man who wouldn't touch a cigarette. After a strong performance at Virginia Tech, his third-round draft by the Carolina Panthers gave him six seasons on Sir Purr's team, and led to a strong career and free agency. With 577 career tackles, this is a man whose lungs earned him a $22 million contract, a natural fit for luxury e-liquid.
From One Life to Live to Guardians of the Galaxy, John Brotherton has seen it all. Sophisticated but casual in a stand-up collar and pin-striped shirt, Brotherton fit perfectly the image of a Velare vaper. His broad smile and easy, comfortable manner have earned him millions; his smile has won him hearts.
Velare's celebrity status even attracted the interest of Kel Mitchel, casual in distressed denim. He and his wife Asia Lee are expecting their first girl, but children don't keep them trapped at home: what's life without some glitz and glamour?
One can only presume Randy Jackson kept his American Idol judging hat off for the festivities, which included Noah Cyrus, Pitbull and J Balvin, and a bold performance from Big Sean, but we're certain how he'd judge Velare's smooth vanilla crème. Even Idol co-host Simon Cowell couldn't help but to be pleased with its subtle maraschino cherry finish!
Incredible comedic actress Star Jackson was our favorite personality: warm and kind and funny in equal measures, her broad smile lit every room she entered. She truly appreciated Velare's elegant presentation.
It's hard to choose a single highlight of the night: seeing Gal Godot present the Generation Award, hearing host Adam DeVine brilliantly tear through the musical medley, with its homages to Beauty and the Beast and Logan, DJ Khaled giving it up for DJ Nasty, Taraji P. Henson winning Best Hero for her amazing role in Hidden Figures...the hits just kept on coming. Velare was proud and pleased to be a part of this star-studded night, and to share Velare luxury e-liquid with so many wonderful celebrities. Velare isn't the sort to go to the same party twice, but for this, we could consider exceptions!
