Captured by LiveLeak, here’s the “King of Pop” sneaking out of the coroner van (see below).
We believe it. I mean, there’s video proof.
Okay, maybe not. Top 8 Reasons to Determine this is a Hoax:
- No “real” news pickup… even the tabloids. Not even Snopes!
- Indignant post by Ben Parr, tech reporter (mashable).
- Van is allegedly not the same.
- The driver doesn’t bother looking to see if anyone is watching. We kinda think he might have noticed a cameraman and used the van to cover the exit.
- The camera is suspiciously amateurish… with its deliberate push/pulls to show the gate.
- No audio gasps from the camera person, or even the slightest attempt to sneak under gate for what would be a paparazzi’s wet dream.
- The furious comments on AssociatedContent.
- Oh- then there’s this Examiner article that claims CNN reports it was a confessed hoax by German TV Station RTL. Not much online to back that up, but here’s a Polish newspaper (translated) that supports it.
