The song isn’t important here – it’s basically random Japanese pop. The clip, however, is. It’s a rare day when one actually catches a glimpse of the future – and, for better or for worse, this is probably the future. The horrible future. The horrible, hideous, no-good future.
No, seriously, watch this.
Yeah. I know.
However, just imagine the possibilities if this technology was ever used for good.
By which I obviously mean: George Harri-Gram and John LennonBot.
Oh, who am I kidding? You know who the first dead celebrity’s gonna be that they drag, kicking and screaming back from the grave to dance for our pleasure? I’ll give you three guesses, and the first two don’t count.
Apparently, Michael Jackson had his body scanned during the ’90s, and I don’t mean by the police, looking for “identifying marks” 0n his naughty bits. No, he had his body literally turned into a hologram. There was even a rumor, last year, that the big series of concerts MJ was supposed to play in London before he died would happen after all… in holographic form, anyway.
Whether you think watching Holo-MJ dancing with Real Justin Timberlake would be an awesome way to spend an evening or not… I think it’s safe to say that the future has landed with a horrid thud.
