Online Gambling Site Buys Michael Jackson's Hair

This story was published more than 11 years ago.

Online gambling information portal Online Gambling Pal has bought a clump of Michael Jackson's hair for £7,000.

The wad of hair was dug out of a shower drain at the Carlyle Hotel, where Jackson stayed in the 1980's while visiting New York City. Rock memoribilia auction site Gotta Have Rock and Roll auctioned the hair, which sold for £7,000.

What does the site have planned with the hair wad? A roulette ball of course.

A company spokesman commented about the plans for Jackson's hair saying "The ball itself will be made to the highest professional standards, ensuring it will be eligible for use at any licensed casino's roulette table."

I am sorry I can't resist...

Jacko's hair was black but roulette balls are white. How fitting!


As far as crazy marketing stunts go this is pretty out there. It will probably enrage a good bunch of the hardcore Jacko fans. But then again here we are talking about it so I guess it kind of works? I have to give credit to the "special" person who thought this up though, they truly are one of a kind!
