‘Miami Vice’ Fans Show Their Love In Unique Ways

MIAMI (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Star Wars and Star Trek are franchises known for their obsessive fans, but Miami Vice also has its devoted followers.

The movie version of Miami Vice opens today (July 28) and while new fans could make it a box-office hit, there are still fans obsessed with the old TV show.

Like the former cop so obsessed with the original series that he still wears the pastel suits and T-shirts favored by series star Don Johnson. Or the time he invited Philip Michael Thomas to his wedding and, when the actor actually showed up, the groom booted his best man so Thomas could take his place in the wedding party.

Others are more marketing-driven in their Vice vices.

In 2005, the Bentley Beach luxury hotel in Miami started a “Modern Miami Vice” vacation package. For only $18,000 guests would receive a Ferrari 30 Modena Spider rental for three days, a men’s haircut and the first season of the show on DVD.
