Michael Jackson Dances Again! On Your Pepsi Can…

UGH.

Yesterday, news broke on Pepsi’s dealings with Michael Jackson’s estate which allows the not-Coke soda company to use his image for their money-making schemes.

One such scheme is to release collectible Pepsi cans emblazoned with images of Mikey dancing, which will coincide with the 25th anniversary of the multi-platinum Bad album that is arguably one of Jackson’s best. The cans will include scannable tags that will allow consumers access to remixes of his hit song ‘Bad.’

And, it seems dead Michael will be dancing to sell you a MULTITUDE of products in the future! A spokeswoman for Michael's estate has said that while this is the first marketing campaign featuring the King of Pop since his death, it will NOT be the last.

Isn’t it lovely when companies manipulate dead celebs to sell us things?

These dancing cans will hit shelves in China this weekend, and are set to appear in the US sometime this month.

Because it’s a lot easier to make a dead celeb do what you want than a live one! Especial with today's booming hologram business! HAH.

    Um…. you make a living off of exploiting celebrities, both living and deceased.

    The only difference is you have zero permission and only one agenda: to make yourself money.



  3. 3

    And who would drink from the can with an image of an alleged child molestor /substance abuser emblazoned on it??



  4. 4

    thank God I don't drink that shit



  5. 5

    Are you kidding me? How long have we been looking at items with John Lennon, Bob Marley,Elvis, Marilyn, James Dean, etc and now when Michael Jackson's estate starts merchandising, you have a problem?



  6. 6

    Re: Jlbfly – John Lennon, Bob Marley, Elvis, Marilyn & James Dean weren't child molesters.



  7. 7

    I cannot stand Pepsi and with this marketing ploy, Pepsi proves it has truly bad taste.



  8. 8

    Re: Meggie246524
    You mean that Elvis Presley who as a soldier dated with 14 yo Priscilla?
    Okay… of course he could have such a relationship… based only on romance, and of course there wasnt anything sexual…, just because he was Elvis, right?

    James Dean… a gay toyboy…

    Bob Marley… a weed junkie… and now king of weed junkies…

    Re: raypearsonRe: Meggie246524

    BTW… you avatar pic is also like about a dubious character.
    Any proof MJ as a drug addict pedo?
    Just because you want him to be like that and your inability to distinguish facts from fictions shows it clear - you are a deluded guy living a poor life to jugde others reading tabloid.

    Re: Taylor – That was a very cute attempt at trying to sound unbiased and intelligent. Keep up the effort - I'm sure you'll succeed someday.

    SAYS PEREZ, THE PERSON WHO MAKES HIS ENTIRE LIVING OFF OF CELEBRITIES' LIVES, DEAD OR ALIVE.
    Do you hear how ridiculous you sound? What a moronic hypocrite.

    Re: Taylor – Weed junkie? You're clearly a moron. You obviously need to escape from your little bubble and see the real world. Have you ever seen a real junkie? I doubt it. Now, run along privileged white kid…

    Re: Taylor – And the proof he was a drug addict? Read the autopsy report. His body showed signs of severe substance abuse. He died from a massive drug overdose. If this is not "proof" to you, you're clearly a bigger moron than you let on.

    Good job, Taylor. Keep hammering away at those trolls. From the sound and look of them, they've got zero room to point fingers at any one. But then it's always the most ignorant and the most uninformed who pass judgment on others fueled by their runaway hatred and vitriol. What else have people like that got to do?

  19. Tim says – reply to this

    That's a bit rich coming from the company indirectly responsible for his death, the reason he was abusing drugs was due to when his hair caught fire filming a Pepsi ad.

    Explains why pepsi tastes bad the company itself has bad taste.

    To all the haters, please get the facts before displaying your ignorance. Mr Jackson was found not guilty on all counts. 50 deputies combed his house and found nothing. The FBI found nothing. All the "witnesses" were found to be frauds. So what's your problem? He's a black superstar? He has billions of loyal black and white fans? Get over it folks! MJ is the greatest-and will always be around -that's a fact. The ignorance displayed is really pathetic in this day and age. Neither was MJ an addict - the autopsy report found no drugs apart from Dr Murray's, and his health was found to be superior to people his age.

    MJ was NOT a pedophile.

    Let's face it, anything MJ sells like no other.

    Both Elvis and MJ were not good influences when we talk about drug use but still, their faces and names on anything sell.

    Even the Cirque Immortal has been CONSISTENTLY the top-grossing concert every week since it started showing soon October last year (based on Pollstars weekly report).

    Whether you like it or not, MJ rules worldwide.

    They've been doing this to Elvis Presley for decades, so Michael Jackson is a fresh new product for companies use in their marketing.

    really sickening comments on the whole, we miss you MJ, but we don't need your image on pepsi cans to remember you…

    First of all MJ was not a child molester. He was a honest man full of dignity and pride. Although i don't like PEPSI as a Company, i like this new idea. MJ gave this company a lot of success and money too

    Don't people get tired of this garbage, the man was found innocent on all charges. If you read these cases you would know they are made up lies for money. MJ is the king of music and always will be. We love you and miss you Michael

    Re: Taylor – This is to all the MJ haters saying he was a Pedo. What EVIDENCE do YOU PERSONALLY HAVE that Michael was a "PEDO" that you can supply to a court of law. My Guess is NONE! Michael was found NOT GUILTY in 2005, the Accusers got to testify and it turns out the Mom had a history of Fraud and using her children! The Mom and Children had already been questioned by DCS and they said MJ never harmed them and they closed the case. Tom Sneddon knew that when he filled the ridiculous charges. Read the Trail Transcript or the FBI FILE which was released in 2009 and showed they investigated MJ for over 10 years and could find NOTHING! Read the Book Redemption written by the Secretary of the lawyer Rothman who sued Michael for Evan Chandler. You might be shocked at what was going on. The author indicates the real motive was to Extort Money from MJ based on a private investigators information. The Tabloid Media was more than willing then and now to pay for any false story because MJ was famous and negative news sold better than Positive. Micheal's Insurance Settled that case against his will.

    Michael was a great Humanitarian and received award from all over the world. I would be happy to drink from a can of Pepsi with MJ picture.

    Re: Johnny_cage – I do feel MJ was a good influence. He had many artist say he was a great inspiration. His songs have the message of Helping Mankind, Being a Steward for the Planet, Brotherhood and Peace. Yes he was human! Michael was a Musical Genius who Kept the Faith as his song says when he was being attached from the trashy media. He helped children all over the world and is known for giving to many charities. Bless him and may he rest in peace.

    Come here little boy would you like a Pepsi? I know he was found innocent but he still paid them off which says something,

    I can't wait! There is history between Michael and Pepsi. I'm not a fan of Pepsi but love, love Michael. I am glad that Pepsi has not allowed all the slander and media lies to affect their decision to do this. God bless.

    Someone necessarily assist to make significantly articles I would state. This is the first time I frequented your website page and up to now? I amazed with the research you made to make this actual submit extraordinary. Fantastic activity!

    Re: jamie22Re: ramion – Amen!!!!! It amazes.me, that people can be so IGNORANT. Michael Jackson was completely innocent. The DA could never find other children to come forward even after travelling to other continents. Research it!!!!!!! Now look at other cases when one came forward tons more were always to follow. Examples include Penn state coach and currently john travolta not to mention countless other cases but NOONE else came forward in the MJ case if you were an intellectual person couldn't you figure that out???????? INNOCENT ON ALL COUNTS!!!!
