Wait, what?

Am I the only one who doesn't get the brilliance of this ad?

All I see is a clever superimposition linking michael to the black ribbon. I see no cause, no message, no purpose for this ad. All it is, is a headstone.

Please be scrupulous in discerning between substance and gimmick.

...Because I'm Dead, I'm Dead-
Come On
(Dead, Dead -Really, Really Dead)
You Know I'm Dead, I'm Dead-
You Know It..

this ad makes zero sense.
the ribbon image is always associated with a cause, and they're ain't no cause here. unless it's a cause supporting dancing, drug-addicted pedifiles.

Great! I’m glad to see something a little different in the MJ ad's but it is still using a very familiar image. Great work!
