A black-and-red calfskin jacket that Michael Jackson wore in the classic “Thriller” video has sold at auction for $1.8 million.
Darren Julien, president and CEO of Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills, says the jacket was purchased Sunday by Milton Verret, a commodities trader from Austin, Texas.
The jacket is one of two Jackson wore during the filming of the 1983 “Thriller” video. Jackson wears the jacket in a scene with a troupe of zombies who rise from their graves and break into a dance routine.
Verret says the jacket will be sent on tour and used as a fundraising tool for children’s charities.
A portion of the sale price will go to the Shambala Preserve, a big cat sanctuary caring for two tigers Jackson one owned.
London Olympics day 6 Google doodle For Hockey
London Olympics 2012 hockey is the sixth London Olympics Google doodle, keeping the tradition of a Google doodle every day of the Olympics.
The Google doodle represents a female field hockey player . This is one of the rare doodles where there’s no connection between the characters of the doodle and the Google logo. Instead, the player masks the second O and the G, as well as part of the L in the Google logo.
On Friday, the Google doodle had celebrated the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics. The doodle 5 athletes playing different Olympic sports. On Saturday, the Google doodle had celebrated the sport of archery, with a female archer getting ready to aim for bull’s eye.
Sunday’s Google doodle celebrated the Olympic sport of diving. Monday and Tuesday were about fencing and gymnastics men’s rings respectively.
Google has a rich history of Olympics related doodles. In 2008, there was a doodle celebrating the opening ceremony of the Bejing Olympics on Aug 8, 2008. This doodle showed the five Beijing Olympics mascots – BeiBei, JingJing, HuanHuan, YingYing and NiNi – carrying the Olympic flag.
Each day in 2008 saw different Google doodles being released. It is expected that this year too Google will stay true to its tradition and come out with a series of doodles spread across the next fifteen days. With the opening ceremony, archery & diving doodles done and dusted, it will be interesting to see the pattern Google follows for the rest of the Olympics.
