SHAME on German RTL, Makers of Michael Jackson Hoax Video

As I drove this morning, I listened to a live reading of one of the local papers. One story I found especially interesting and helpful. It spoke of the viral video of a supposed Michael Jackson hopping out of a coroner's van, very much alive. I wrote of this in this post: http://theydontseethroughus.blogspot.com/2009/08/michael-jackson-conspiracies.html

As I stated, it was more likely than not a hoax, and it was. I'm sure most people realized that. A German broadcaster shot this video in Germany, painting a white van with the word CORONER. They did this to prove a point that conspiracy theorists believe anything and all that nonsense debunkers love to accuse ALL conspiracy theorists of.

BERLIN — A hoax video purportedly showing Michael Jackson emerging from a coroner's van was an experiment aimed at showing how quickly misinformation and conspiracy theories can race across the Internet, German broadcaster RTL said Tuesday.

The video was posted by RTL on YouTube for a single day a week ago and received 880,000 hits. The broadcaster has since removed the video from YouTube, but it has been picked up by other Web sites around the world.

"We wanted to show how easily users can be manipulated on the Internet with hoax videos," spokeswoman Heike Schultz of Cologne-based RTL told The Associated Press. "Therefore, we created this video of Michael Jackson being alive, even though everybody knows by now that he is dead — and the response was breathtaking." {source}


Well, I invite them to read my blog and they'll see that that it just not the case. And I'm sure others have written that they believe it's a hoax but OF COURSE, they will ignore those and just point out the people who fell for it.

This RTL is a hoaxer and they are, apparently, very proud of themselves. Well, I would like to tell them to not think so highly of themselves because all I see this as is exploiting Michael Jackson shortly after his death.

The RTL spokeswoman said some Jackson fans were upset by the German broadcaster's actions.

"We didn't want to dishonor Michael Jackson, but we needed a strong name to get this experiment going," Schultz said. "Had we used Britney Spears, then the fans of Britney would have complained."*



Plus it's unoriginal. People always hoax things like this to poke fun at conspiracy theorists and prove some point (which is never proven) but I think these people should just be ashamed of themselves. This was a stunt. An attention grabbing stunt. Very pathetic. They want their names out there and they use this as a way to get people's attentions. P A T H E T I C! Don't have anything better to do?

Oh, you think!? Well, I think you DID dishonor him! You USED him post-mortem. Use any celebrity, dead or alive, and their fans will be pissed. It doesn't take a genius to figure that out! RTL should apologize publicly.
I'm so sick of these hoaxes. Like I said before, there should be an anti-hoax law. Society gains nothing from hoaxes. But a lot of time, energy and sometimes ever money is wasted and lost due to hoaxes. These typed of hoaxes (like Gerogia bigfoot hoax) should really be illegal.
