The Truth about Goats
While Sky TV have agreed to cancel their outlandish depiction of ‘Michael Jackson – crazy white guy’, his legacy as ‘crazy guy’ remains untarnished. Sadly, driving with Marlon Brando and Liz Taylor – while suffering pigmentation confusion – may be one of his more lucid moments.
The episode was part of a series on Urban Myths – which no doubt will include a frozen Walt Disney, a happy Brexit and Donald Trump advertising bed pads. Sky have said that Mr. Jackson was exaggerated for comic effect, which is also true of how they portrayed him.
Joseph Fiennes’ agent said: ‘My client had considered playing the role dangling a baby off a balcony, in a Peter Pan theme park, while a monkey bounced on his head. But he felt that would be too implausible’.
Meanwhile friends of Miss Jackson have tried to protect her from father’s past, including fictitious awards, slumber parties with Macaulay Culkin and all collaborations with Paul McCartney. One said: ‘That’s not the father she knew, that’s just an embarrassing arse – or a Jarvis Cocker’.
