I was fortunate enough to grow up with Star Wars. I was born in 1977 (the same year the first movie came out). I also grew up with Michael Jackson gracing TV stations with his presence and upbeat pop music in the 1980′s. Thank goodness we did not have MTV in South Africa back then. I can only imagine what they were doing to his hit singles on there.
When it comes to Darth Vader vs Michael Jackson I think it would be a tie. Both of them will go down in the annals of pop culture history, be forever part of 1980′s nostalgia and future generations will continue to wonder what the fuck people were we smoking back then.
I picked this up on 9Gag earlier today about Darth Vader vs Michael Jackson and I think it’s a nice summary. I also think that many of you reading this will agree with these facts. I really hope that Disney (who now owns the Lucasfilm enterprise) lets Darth Vader have a cameo role in the 3 rumoured upcoming Star Wars films, I kinda miss his presence on the silver screen. The movies are rumoured to be scheduled for release in 2014 or 2015.
There you have it, similarities when it comes to Darth Vader vs Michael Jackson. Do you agree with this or not? Maybe you just find this hilarious because it’s true or maybe you were still an embryo when both their popularities peaked. Let me know what you think.
