However, neither Jones nor Johnston seems to know much about the current state of affairs at Playgirl. While Levi thinks Playgirl is all about “a dude posing for women,” Tank seems to be unaware that the print version of the magazine folded late last year.
"You've gotta have some johnson. You can can't come in there lacking in the johnson area. You've gotta unfold some things, “ Jones says of the potential Playgirl spread while lecturing Levi in the video. “ A dude posed for the magazine and they had to add an extra leaf to fold out for him ... [so] I'm saying, do you need extra magazine or do you don't [sic] need that?"
The exchange left Unzipped’s Andreoli scratching his head.
“What’s confusing is that on the Vanity Fair video, Tank is talking about how Levi is going to pose in the magazine, but there is no Playgirl magazine. The real offer is for Levi to pose for Playgirl.com. A lot of people are under the assumption that Playgirl is still publishing print magazines, but it’s not,."
Perhaps even more intriguing is the notion that Levi appears to be completely unaware of just who reads Playgirl.
"The problem is that I think there’s a misconception on Levi’s part. He thinks that Playgirl is a magazine where guys pose nude for women," Andreoli said. "As a gay man, I can tell you that’s not your primary audience at Playgirl. Many of the models that are seen in Men or Unzipped have also been in Playgirl. There’s a huge overlap of our models."
And despite a story this morning on Gawker suggesting that a deal between Johnston and Playgirl.com was as good as done, Jones said nothing is confirmed.
Confusion aside, no matter the audience for any photo shoot Levi may appear in, Jones is very clear: His client is completely comfortable.
