A toast to Maksim Chmerkovskiy!
Dancing With the Stars fans lined up for hours this past weekend to meet the reigning DWTS pro champion and check out his new Denim Vodka.
Maks met the lucky fans outside of Joe Canals in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, and you can watch the videos below from the local news station and Maks’s own Instagram to see how much of a hit he was with his fellow N.J. residents.
Maks’s rep, Lizzie Grubman, was at the event, and first shared a smiling photo of Maks getting ready to meet fans. She then posted the signing pic shown above, writing, "3 hours later and hundreds of people later... Thank you all for supporting @maksimc and #denimvodka !"
Maks’ brother Val Chmerkovskiy also shared the signing photo, adding his own endorsement: "Huge congrats to my brother @maksimc he's got the hottest Vodka out right now. For real that ish tastes amazing and I know what I'm talking about ;) .. Check it out, coming to a store near you 👌 #denimvodka"
According to NBC, Denim Vodka will feature a regular vodka, as well as two flavored varieties, jelly apple and pink sugar.
Check out the videos below to get a taste (haha) of the event. Fans commented on Maks' Instagram videos, saying they were so thrilled to meet him, some saying they waited in line for four hours — and it was worth it. Maks apparently went the extra mile for his fans, too, since one wrote, "I can't believe you took the time to do my moms answering machine! She is so excited!! All of her friends are calling her! Haha! Thank you so much for everything once again!!!"
Sounds like a great time — and hopefully everyone is enjoying their vodka as much as they enjoyed meeting Maks in person!
DWTS Season 19 premieres this fall on ABC.
