Before we dive into today’s picspam—a compilation of fabulousness in vampirism that should carry you nicely through the weekend—we must play a brief round of Good News / Bad News:

BAD NEWS: Johnny is NOT doing commentary this weekend for Cup of China. Uncle Terry will be manning the NBC booth with Tracy Wilson Sunday at 12 noon ET.

GOOD NEWS: Johnny IS doing commentary for the National Dog Show broadcast Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 26, on NBC at 12 noon ET! Get all the details plus pics in this post!


You may recall a tiny note in our previous Halloween on Ice megapost indicating that due to technical difficulties, we did NOT have video of Johnny’s first appearance in the show as Dracula, the Vampire King. Fortunately we were able to remedy that in Peoria, where we also had an entirely different view of the show than we did in either Syracuse or Grand Rapids. For this tour stop, we were seated at the far end of the ice rather than in the middle, which offered a new perspective for photos and videos that turned out to be pretty cool.

And so we now present The King of the Vampires arriving in all his opulent, malevolent, and briefly almost-giggly glory during the group number, “I Put a Spell on You,” via exclusive photos and video. As always, most of these shots are pleasantly huge, so please click any photo to study it closely in all its brilliant detail.

    Thank you so much Binky! It was so unfortunate I had to work. His US appearances are rare occasions indeed. But your video was awesome along with your accompanying narration and I felt like I was there. I couldn’t get the smile off my face it was so awesome! Thank you again for all you do!
