On Thursday afternoon, Michael Jackson passed away suddenly at the age of 50. To say the King of Pop was a controversial figure in recent years is an understatement but nobody will argue the fact he is one of the most iconic people of the 20th century. Whether you enjoyed his music or not, I doubt there’s anybody whose never heard of him or some of his songs. Even though my musical tastes went in a different direction once I became a teenager and heard Nirvana for the first time, I am still a child of the 80′s so I’ll deeply miss one of the legendary figures from my youth. Truth be told, there was once a time when I tried to glue sparkles to my batting glove so I could emulate Jacko.
Evidently I’m not the only one who will miss Michael Jackson. Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and Super Bowl XLIII MVP Santonio Holmes posted the above video blog on his official website.
However, Santonio is going one step further. He’s sponsoring a contest asking people to submit a short video of themselves emulating the King of Pop. His favorite will win two tickets to an upcoming Steeler game. Considering Tone’s place on the team, I’d imagine his seats are pretty good.
So get out your batting gloves, Elmer’s glue, and buy a bag of sparklies. You have until July 10th to submit your video to Santonio. And don’t forget to bust out a moonwalk. Actually, if you’ve never tried to moonwalk on a wooden floor in your socks then you owe it to yourself to try it just one time. Just beat it.
