“His hometown is Mainz, he is 33 years old and has gone by Mr. Cool Ice for the last 13 years. He basically states that’s just who he is period.”
“They do a tour of his apartment and we discover that he is a clean freak. Everything has to be spotless and in the right place.”
“The 2 girls on the talk show are basically making an ass out of him and a direct translation from the girl sitting closest to him is ‘You look like Shit’.”
“He has spent over 4,000 euro’s to get his tattoos which is about 6, 000 USD.”
On September 14th, 2008, YouTuber iancities posted a video of Mr. Cool Ice photographs together with some Jonas Brothers music. The post got fourty thousand views in ten years.

On June 6th, 2018 Somf_machine , a Reddit user, posted an English translation of the interview:
“Mr. Ice: I made up the name myself, so it’s mine, patent-registered on me, mmmh, so I basically started here – by myself, Frank wasn’t there – to design the skull. (cut) The logo originated from the fact that I wanted to have a skull… you know, on the jackets, too, back then when the tattoos weren’t… uuh, uhhhm somehow, not to be realized in the near future and stuff… and I really wanted the skull. So, but they only had ‘Heavy Metal‘ skulls everywhere but they’re aggressive to me. That’s a direction I didn’t wanna follow. So that’s why.. we did it at the t-shirt shop, took it from a skeleton, changed the glasses… that means removed the eyes, put in glasses, added veins, brought out the teeth – really brought them out for the smile, so it would fit the name… he shouldn’t be aggressive, maybe a bit (? I don’t understand that word, at all) but also the peace maker type.”
