What a nifty way to hype your show — it’s co-produced by the dead honoree.
Cirque Du Soleil members have claimed that Michael Jackson’s ghost has been haunting the Las Vegas stage show written in his memory.
Members feel that Cirque Du Soleil’s ‘One,’ which promises fans to bring them closer to the King of Pop with their intimate performance, is haunted by Michael’s ghost, which has been doing so for several months, while working on their new gig at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, the Mirror reported.
Show creator Jamie King reckons that the late singer has guided their work from beyond the grave while some staff felt that he helped them create their latest Cirque Du Soleil hit.
Oh, really? How convenient. This is clearly a way to sell the show. It’s not surprising that those involved will feel a special perhaps eerie feeling when “channeling” the dead artist in this tribute. There is zero evidence that it has anything to do with his actual spirit but more of the metaphorical “spirit” which is in the show to honor his works and memory.
Beware of media hype like this that is strictly designed to sell more tickets.
