The Most Ridiculous Item of the Week – 3.30.07

An entertainment organizer who has been working to possibly bring a MICHAEL JACKSON show to Las Vegas is telling reporters that the singer is still entertaining the idea, but would have one very big demand.

According to Mike Luckman, who runs a show-biz consulting company, Jacko said that he would want a 50-foot metallic statue of himself to stand in the desert on the outskirts of the city. “Laser beams would shoot out of it, so it would be the first thing people flying would see,” Luckman said. “Neon is wonderful, but it’s [too] old school.”

Even though Luckman may have been exaggerating or even lying completely in order to get his name on our site, something like this shouldn’t surprise anyone. I’m just wondering where the 20-foot metallic naked Verne Troyer who would throw metallic peeled grapes at metallic Michael Jackson’s metallic buttocks would be. On the other side of town, perhaps? Or maybe in nearby Henderson, Nev.?
