    Default Hologram of Roy Orbison to go on tour

    Any thoughts? Contrary to the title, I think it's rather creepy, myself. I know there's been other places where holograms were to be used, and the families stepped in and said no.

    On a side note: I also think it's creepy that the music from the new Capital One campaign is all from deceased artist (Prince, Whitney Houston, and Michael Jackson).

    I saw this on the National News the other night. It reminded me of when we had a topic about this for the Eagles/Glenn. It is kind of creepy. No, I would not pay to see something like that regarding anyone.

    It seems kind of creepy to me as well. I think there may be some circumstances where hologram's may be appropriate, but, without experiencing one firsthand, my initial reaction is 'no thanks'.

    And now there will be a tour of a hologram of Amy Winehouse.

    Apparently, her father thinks this is great.

    No... just... no.

    Oh my gosh. Maybe I'm missing something here, but I don't understand the appeal.

    Oh geez, I didn't even catch that. I just cringe b/c it's 80s music. Those three had such squeaky-clean images back in their prime. No one could have guessed they would all die prematurely in drug-related circumstances.
