The genius thing about the Internet is the speed with which information can be disseminated. Of course, that also includes misinformation, rumor, hoaxes, etc. Take the recent video footage of a little man exiting a coroner’s van. Some are insisting that it’s Michael Jackson, proving that the King of Pop is still alive.

This is hardly the Zapruder film. In fact, it’s as convincing and authentic as footage of Sasquatch wearing a wristwatch. I love the poster’s comments: “I got the original video tape from a trustworthy source. I know him for years. And I am sure it’s real and Michael is alive.” Riiiiiiiight. But maybe I’m just being cynical. Chances that MJ is still alive?
