Color resin statuette of Pinocchio talking to Jiminy Cricket perched on his shoe.
16 by 10 by 9.5 inches”
Today, I spent most of my time browsing through the online auction catalogue of the Michael Jackson Neverland sale. One item that tickled my fancy was the Pinocchio Statuette above. I fell in love with it. In a nasty Paul McCarthy kind of way.
For further research, I watched the Living with Michael Jackson documentary from a few years back by that (awful) “journalist”. And what can I see, sitting on one of the tables: Pinocchio!
Got to have him!
But what I really was looking for was the moment when Michael Jackson goes shopping in Las Vegas. One of the best moments ever captured by TV cameras, minus the stupid “journalist” commentary, who is only asking about the prices. Boring!
Anyway, here it is. Jump to 4:00 minutes, where the fun begins.
“Journalist”: Do you think it is a bit tacky?
Michael Jackson: Tacky, are you silly?
Michael Jackson + Shopping = Magic
