SOME THINGS OF NOTE:
• Kenny Wizz is a decidedly unfortunate name. Perhaps he imagines the name will have people recalling MJ's role in The Wiz, but everyone will agree it sounds more like he's a porn star who specializes in "wet work."
• The music in this trailer is oddly terrifying for a Michael Jackson show. It's reminiscent of Battlestar Galactica meeting Carmina Burana.
• The press release states that "Michael Jackson HIStory Show brings to the stage a level of production that will exceed all expectations." They seem pretty confident, so let those expectations soar!
• Kenny Wizz looks like ghoulish, scary later-period Michael Jackson. Is this the MJ you want to pay money to see impersonated?
• There. Right there. At 2:40-2:43 in the promo video. What. The. Fuck? Is Wizz unaware of Jackson's questionable legacy in this regard?
• SERIOUSLY THIS MUSIC IS FREAKING ME OUT
