Holographic Tupac and the Conspiracy Theories That Must Follow

[An observation by special correspondent, Brent Chittenden. – AC]

Have you ever seen that skit by Dave Chappelle where he’s in a club and the new Tupac song comes on? Tupac’s song describes current events including what happens in the club itself, it’s a witty piece of comedy.  Or is it?

Apparently that skit now has a little bit of competition in reality as a “holographic” Tupac performed at Coachella with Snoop and Dr. Dre this past weekend. It is said that it was put together by using old concert footage of Tupac.  


Now, if I were a betting man, I’d say the live performance aspect probably shares similar technologies to the gear Gorillaz were using (their Grammy appearance with Madonna). No real explanation has been given for Tupac being able to name the Coachella festival when it didn’t start until three years after Tupac died.


No explanation other then the obvious one.  Tupac lives!


Start your conspiracies here.  Maybe he really is living in New Zealand.

    Virtual rap star? Are we witnessing the historical start of the newest trend? Where's Biggie? Is Elvis going to return to the building? How about a post mortem celebrity line up and we can call it DEAD AID. Better than a night out watching more Hollywood movie remakes!
