te fuiste!

i was thinking of coming up with a post listing a tribute for michael jackson...
MJ songs and suggesting who might do a great cover. in my "research" i came across this. which is simply over the top brilliant. i only wish the patron recording the video had the sense to leave out his commentary and singing.
