Michael Jackson Press Conference is like a Tim & Eric Awesome Show sketch

Michael Jackson is going on tour for nine or ten, or possibly as many as 20 or more, shows in Europe.

Here's the silly press conference video. He looks like he's standing in front of a green screen, with the red curtain put in "in post". And the way it keeps cutting back to the "screaming fans" (literally, there appear to be dozens of them!) is just cheesy and unconvincing. I don't think they were actually there- they were probably filmed somewhere else, perhaps in line for "New Kids on the Block" tickets.

Really, who told him this looked cool or exciting? It just looks sad, and without any self-awareness; sort of like the sketches they do on "Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!" on Adult Swim.

Except Tim and Eric is funny on purpose.
