We’re just a few short days away from the release of the forthcoming Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt, and Machine Gun Kelly is celebrating the upcoming release by snagging the perfect biopic-inspired photo-op.
It was brought to the attention of Machine Gun Kelly, who is playing the role of Tommy Lee in the film, that a billboard for the biopic could be found on Sunset Boulevard.
So obviously, MGK had to go find it…. and climb it.
“About to go pose next to the Tommy Lee version of my face,” MGK says in the video.
At first, the rapper snags a few photos standing on the ground in front of The Dirt billboard. He then decides that they need to get a little closer, channeling his inner Spider-Man to scale the billboard’s heights.
“I’m on the sunset strip!” MGK yells from atop the biopic promo, and we have to admit, it’s a pretty badass shot.
Check out the video of MGK’s adventure, below!

More on Machine Gun Kelly as Tommy Lee
Machine Gun Kelly recently revealed that while filming the Dirt, he spent over four months learning Mötley Crüe’s signature drum stick move. In a story with USA Today, MGK says that he garnered calluses on his hands just to learn how to twirl the drum sticks.
“I had that damn drumstick in my hand for four months straight, dude,” MGK says. “I have giant calluses in between my middle finger and my index finger just spinning that damn stick. So I hope you enjoy the stick twirls in that movie.”
Additionally, in the interview, MGK says he was shocked by all of the things he had to learn and subject himself to for the role of Tommy Lee.
That said, the rapper says that being in his presence certainly helped him tackle the role.
The Dirt will hit Netflix on March 22.
