It’s been nine months since Michael Jackson died tragically from a drug overdose at age 50.
But millions of fans the world over have since come to believe that—outrageous as it sounds—the King of Pop faked his own demise.
Leading the charge on this conspiracy theory is British teen Tom Pickering.
Since November, Tom (aka PianoGames) has been amassing evidence, in the form of a YouTube series, that Michael did in fact carry out the alleged hoax.
“I know people may think my theory is a bit crazy, but the videos I have made have collected a total of one million views and I am getting 100 to 150 emails a day in support of the theory,” Tom told British website GetReading earlier this month.
“My parents were a bit skeptical at first but I have managed to convince them and my brother and sister, and we now all think that he is still alive and has just escaped to get away from the media,” he added.
Also this month, in a statement, famed paranormalist Uri Geller said of Tom’s investigation:
“Tom has some very interesting viewpoints and some of the evidence is very compelling but there are always conspiracy theories around legends like Michael.”
