WTF Of The Week: Jacko And His Pink Corvette

Perhaps you thought Angelyne was the strangest celebrity to ever be seen driving around in a pink Corvette? We’ll bet you there’s one who will even top her! Here’s a hint; who do we know from Southern California who, during his heyday, changed his nose as often as most people change underwear, had an amusement park in his backyard and had a pension for hanging babies from balconies?

If you guessed Pee-Wee Herman then you’re damn close, but not quite. Actually it’s much worse, as amateur filmmaker Natalie and her dad, James Kloster have documented in their rather disturbing short film of “Michael Jackson” and an equally-disturbing creature cruising the town in a pink ‘Vette that you wish you could own.

Watch as Jacko and his counterpart run right into a Viking on their way to the Amazon, with Jacko apparently under the influence as he deliberately ignores the co-piloting advice of his latest slumber party guest, a green… well, whatever it is straight from the whimsical world of “Yo Gabba Gabba.”

But for those of you who did follow our coverage of Los Angeles local,Angelyne last month you may recall the short but sweet commentary that Curbed Los Angeles made about her off-the-wall image when they said that she has “sacrificed her life to embodying everybody’s worst and weirdest ideas about Los Angeles…”

During the peak of his triumphant yet cartoonish career, Jacko not only did that for So Cal but for the whole of America and possibly the entire Western World as he “moonwalked” his way into our hearts with his white gloves and interchangeable parts.

We always knew that he was outlandish, but who would have ever known that the King of Pop was an avid ‘Vette fan?!
