The real Neverland thriller.
July 6, 2009 4:43 PM   Subscribe

Perhaps it was bound to happen eventually, but it seems Michael Jackson's ghost is already haunting the halls of Neverland Ranch. Whether or not the spirt was moonwalking is currently inconclusive.

During a Larry King interview with Jermaine Jackson at the ranch, a CNN camera crew inside MJ's bedroom suite catch an inadverdent shot of...Micheal Jackson's incorporeal spirit. Or someone's shadow. Or a lens abberation. You be the judge!

Michael Jackson's ghost

Virtually indistinguishable from actual late 2000's Michael Jackson.

Okay: Guilty.

I heard he died..

If he was gonna come back, you'd think it would have been as a zombie.

It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart


If there are better words to describe Larry King, I don't know what they are.

That actually happened a few months before he died.

I'm disappointed he didn't moonwalk across the room.

What?! Michael Jackson's dead? I didn't even know he was sick.

I'm a little bit of a wimp (had to walk out of Drag Me To Hell early), but that video legitimately cheeped me out. Don't think that it's actually a ghost, but whatever.

I just saw this on Reddit mere seconds ago! MERE!

It looks super-de-duper fake.

Watched it again. Obviously a shadow, look at the light in the hallway. Still creepy.

That's just Michael teaching GG Allin how to moonwalk.

Oh, for fuck's sake. At least they buried Elvis before the sightings started happening.

Are we gonna get a couple of decades of MJ rumors, like we used to get Elvis rumors, and Bruce Lee rumors before that?

Also if this turns out to be a hoax and he rises from the grave to finish the tour I'm going to suddenly have a lot more respect for him and a lot less respect for the media.

due to my strong personal convictions, i want to stress that this comment in no way endorses my belief in filming or watching what happened in mj's bedroom.

They've officially announced that they are planting MJ at Forrest Lawn tomorrow morning. The cemetery is a quarter mile from the gate I take into the Warner Bros. lot to get to work. They're shutting down the road tonight, and I can expect an extra half-hour of commuting tomorrow morning, as well as swarms of press helicopters overhead all morning long.

Is Michael Jackson haunting me? You're goddamn right.

That just seems like a bad idea waiting to happen. Why not save the trouble and vandalism and just plant him at Neverland now instead of down the road when they realize they made a mistake?

I love that Pepsi conspiracy. The real MJ died January 27, 1984. It's quite elegant.

Sadly, using "skin tone" and "shape of nose" to determine someone is an MJ imposter doesn't seem like the best possible approach to me.

Also, what Roman Graves said, eponysterically and all. A shame he's not a Robin.

Can't be MJ. If it was he would be doing the moonwalk.

From the post: Is Neverland just creepy enough to warrant a spook?

I don't know why in 2009 people think racist language is okay for a cheap laugh.

It's OK when newspapers die, because we'll have CNN to do our investigative journalism.

I was going to say he's a camera whore 'til the end, but its clear that where MJ is concerned, THERE IS NO END.

In Neverland Ranch look out for my ghost,
Unwigged, with nose collapsed,
Playing in the bedrooms with little children,
Whose accusations caused many mishaps.
