Early 'Michael Jackson Project' - Version I / Mark II

Entertainment insiders have admitted that Michael Jackson was a hoax and have confessed that none of his life happened and that it was all a careful illusion using state-of-the-art plastics and magic tricks.

The project was developed by the CIA in the 1960's against the backdrop of the civil rights movement as a way to control unhappy African-Americans.

Martin Luther King claimed to have seen the Michael Jackson in a dream and said that, "He had had a dream where a little brown kid would be able to sing and dance in front of millions of people and not be judged by the colour of his skin."

The dream had been implanted using special lasers, over-the-counter mind-control drugs and loud whispering in his ear while he slept. But the project went horribly wrong when people did start to judge the Michael Jackson by the colour of it's skin.

"The reason that the Michael Jackson started to turn white was because we ran out or brown paint", said an unnamed source - Herbert Zap, who worked on the project from the outset. "We were sworn to secrecy and even had to put our grandmothers in a sealed room to ensure that we never talked about it. If we did, then the room would fill with water and they would drown."

According to Zap, no one ever did speak about it except to journalists.

"Something went wrong, we think it was one of the fuses or possibly that it developed a mind of it's own and just got weird or it exploded. We're not sure which", he said.

As the technology became out-dated, ordinary people started to spot 'things' happening and became 'suspicious' of the Michael Jackson. The CIA used CGI techniques and venriloquists to make it look real but it was too late, irrevocable damage was done when it went berserk in the laboratory upsetting some young children and messing with the apes. The Michael Jackson had failed, it had become an embarrassment and eventually the Michael Jackson Project was terminated.

The CIA deny any knowledge and according to somebody, they have even attempted to fake a 'Michael Jackson Is Dead' scenario using the Internet and helicopters, but the over-exposure has rendered many people immune, disinterested in the silly circus. Some journalists are even writing that it's rubbish or just writing rubbish. We don't know.

Whatever anyone says, he was great and I'll miss the dancing little freak. I think I loved him even if he didn't really exist.
