Just imagine an imaginary scenario where Michael Jackson elaborately fakes his own death to drive up the sales of his albums to generate the cash to pay off his extensive debts. Hm he says as he scratches his chin in contemplation. Hm.
Now I'm in no way advocating this scenario as fact; indeed, I believe that he really is playing the great gig in the sky. However, when I was in Best Buy earlier today I noticed all of the Michael Jackson albums were gone [including, one presumes, the naff ones like Invincible and Blood on the Dance Floor].
If my dinky little Best Buy was out of Jackson albums, then it seems likely everyone's dinky little Best Buys were cleaned out also. That's a shit load of album sales generating some serious moolah. Think about it.
