Michael Jackson To Turn 50…In Newark, Sort Of
Our friends at BaristaNet picked up the Newark Bears promotion celebrating Michael Jackson’s fiftieth birthday. There will be an MJ impersonator, fireworks and moonwalk competition — but actual Michael Jackson not included.
A Michael Jackson impersonator will be on hand to take on Bears mascot Rip ‘N Ruppert in a Thriller Dance off. Here’s the Bears’ impersonator on YouTube from last year. Oh, and fans can enter the Bears’ moonwalk competition on top of the dugout. But wait, there’s also a happy birthday MJ fireworks spectacular. We’re guessing there might be a baseball game in there somewhere as well.
