Footage of DEAD King Of Pop Michael Jackson's final rehearsal in preparations for a series of sell-out London concerts has been described as 'old footage'
Donald Skoob, a janitor, of Salford University insists that the footage was shot some time ago. Sitting in a back room surrounded by mops, buckets and assorted cleaning fluids, sipping a cup of tea and munching on a hobnob, Skoob told us:
"It's obvious that this is old footage. For a start, it's so short. These days, everybody films everything. So how come there's only one clip? Less than two minutes long? And how come, since the announcement of the 'tour' he changed his wig from the one he's worn for years now, into one from his archive all of a sudden? And it's an old song he's rehearsing. And the clothes are dated."
Quite frankly, we were astonished by the revelation, but Donald Skoob was persistent.
"And how come he's a little bit black on the footage, with a nose somewhat wider than the last one he was sporting when he was photographed, where he was porcelain white with a nose that was as thin as a razor blade? It makes you think..."
This reporting team refuse to speculate.
But maybe the janitor had a point.
We can't honestly comment either way, apart from declaring that for the deceased King Of Pop a whitewash wouldn't be an unfamiliar experience.
We promised you no more on this. We lied. As the speculation mounts, there'll be more as we get it.
