Some might say that Joe Manganiello’s statue routine in Magic Mike was too darn short. (Some = me)

Luckily, when Manganiello stopped by EW last week to talk True Blood and Magic Mike, the actor explained in detail what went into filming the scene, which featured his character Big Dick Richie painted head-to-toe in gold paint. (Magic Mike choreographer Alison Faulk was the first to tell us things got a little crazy while filming this scene.) In short? The words “possessed stripper” come to mind.

Watch below as Manganiello explains (and dances a bit) as EW continues its not-totally-necessary-but-also-completely-necessary coverage of Magic Mike.
