Michael Jackson Alive Video Was a Hoax

An obvious one too.

The video which hit the internet last week, was done by a German television station as an experiment. The experiment was too show how easy it was to spread rumors on the internet.

We sent out a press release before we did the video to alert everyone that it was fake, but once posted it spread really fast. 
 - Heike Schultz (spokeswoman for RTL.)

The video which showed Michael Jackson hopping out the back of the coroners van created a big stir on Thursday and was even shown on late night television.

Although some people hopelessly believed the hype, this was so obviously fake. Michael Jackson died at the age of 50 on June 25th.

Now that its out that the video was a fake, there are mixed reactions. Some people thought it was a cruel and insensitive joke while others thought it was a very good trick.

What's your reaction now that  you know the Michael Jackson video is in fact a hoax.

Check out this video on how and why the German Tv Station made the hoax video.

Alli Causes Liver Damage Warns FDA

The United States Food and Drug Administration is warning that the weight loss drug orlistat, which is marketed under the names Xenical and the over the counter Alli, may cause serious liver damage.

Alli first became available in the US in June of 2007 after it became the first weight loss drug approved for over the counter use.

The way orlistat works to promote weight loss is it reduces calorie intake by blocking the absorption of fat in the stomach and small intestines. It's effectiveness is definite but as with nearly all weight loss pills, it comes with a price.

The most common side effects of Xenical and Alli are oily spotting, flatus with discharge, fecal urgency, fatty/oily stool, oily evacuation, increased defecation, and fecal incontinence, which is another way of saying that the drug can cause uncontrollable greasy diarrhea

On August 24, the FDA reported that it would investigate 30 cases of liver damage reported between 1999 and October 2008 in patients taking orlistat, including six cases of liver failure.

Safe Weight Loss

Why risk your long term health health by using unsafe weight loss practices. Pills usually come with risky side effects and can cause irreversible damage.

A better idea would be to try a more healthy and safe weight loss diet along with regular exercise.

Michael Jackson is Alive - Jimmy Kimmel's Take

Well after video hit the internet yesterday that Michael Jackson was alive, late night host Jimmy Kimmel shared the news with his audience and well, you won't believe who else was in the van.

Is The IHC Real?

The IHC or the Institute for Human Continuity is as real as the characters in the new Roland Emmerich film, 2012.

Now whether or not you believe the world is going to end on December the 21st, 2012, this is just a movie. And the IHC is just a fictional organization from the movie.

Sony who distributes 2012, created a site for the Institute for Human Continuity as part of a viral marketing campaign for the film and it works great. It plays into the fears of many who don't know what to believe.

The site, is really detailed and has the feel of a real organization and it can be really scary when they play out the 2012 end of the world theories where celestial bodies crash into the earth. Makes you want to actually consider that the world may very well come to an end in 2012, which of course would make the movie all the more interesting.

Here's the trailer to the movie if you haven't seen it.

Michael Jackson Alive Video

This video is going around a lot lately in which someone who looks like Michael Jackson appears to be coming out the back of the coroners van.

The person who uploaded the video to also posted this message:

This video shows that Michael was still alive after his dead body was transported to the Los Angeles Dept. of Coroner I checked the license plate number and it looks like the King of Pop is jumping out of the same van, his dead body has been in. I got the original video tape from a trustworthy source. I know him for years. And I am sure it´s real and Michael is alive.

Not sure if I believe it. There would have to be much more convincing evidence than this to make me a believer.

The conspiracy theories were expected though. After all, I couldn't believe when I heard that MJ had died. Of course, they would give him the Elvis treatment. For all we know he's chillin' somewhere with Tupac and they're going to be putting out an album together.
