Wow! The rumor actually wasn't that far off!
FOX News, which is frequently criticized for not sticking to their slogan, suggested that a hologram of Ronald Reagan would endorse Mitt Romney on Thursday night before the Republican presidential candidate accepted the party's nomination.
Everyone seemed to know that Clint Eastwood would be taking the podium (although not everyone knew he would be talking to an empty chair), but a Fox anchor went ahead and speculated that the deceased president would be following in Tupac's footsteps.
Well, now someone has confirmed that a holographic projection of the 40th commander-in-chief was actually scheduled to be debuted at the Republican National Convention.
Thankfully, the conservative party was NOT going to allow a brain that no longer functions to endorse a political candidate and was instead going to use an old speech he gave to promote the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act.
Tony Reynolds, an Ohio man working on the project, told sources:
"It wasn't officially going to be part of the convention. It was going to be outside of the convention at the Lakeland Center."
The media was confused by the authenticity of the info which Reynolds himself leaked because he's working with AV Concepts, just one of the companies that had a hand in creating the Tupac Coachella hologram.
"Digital Domain was involved in creating the Tupac hologram as well, but I think the media organizations just reached out to the wrong company."
According to Mr. Reynolds, the Reagan speech discussing small businesses will be used later in the year or 2013.
