Laser Equipped 50 Foot Michael Jackson Robot

The Swirling Brain sent us a Michael-Jackson-robot news item so weird, we at first assumed it was an April Fools joke, but it appears to be for real (or at least as real as anything is in Michael Jackson's universe). The eccentric pop personality may have a 50 foot tall "robot" constructed in his own image. Laser beams would "shoot out of it", making it visible from passing aircraft. The robot would be constructed in Vegas where it would promote his shows (and perhaps use it's lasers to destroy those who don't attend?). Drawings of the robot were prepared by fashion designer Andre Van Pier, who has designed other futuristic props such as spacesuits worn by U2 members during a benefit concert. How would Jackson pay for his 50 foot robot doppelganger? There is speculation that Paul McCartney may invest in the project to get back part of the 25 percent of the Beatles catalog still owned by Jackson. Gizmodo editors note, "No word on whether there will be a 35-foot-tall little boy for him to molest as well.". The Monterey County Herelad suggests a 10 foot companion would be more likely.

It would be really cool if the face of the robot could be ever morphing into various plastic surgery renditions!
