Michael Jackson Statue Unveiled at Fulham’s Craven Cottage: Video

szólj hozzá: Michael Jackson szobor

The surreal scenes of a statue erected in tribute of Michael Jackson materialized at Fulham’s Craven Cottage today before the match against Blackpool. Fulham owner Mohamed Al Fayed was a close friend of the pop star. And Jackson himself had visited Craven Cottage before as a guest of Al Fayed.

The statue is nestled in the corner of the ground between the the Hammersmith End and Riverside Stand. The statue overlooks the River Thames. Thankfully Al Fayed decided to locate the statue there instead of near the Johnny Haynes statue which is behind the Johnny Haynes Stand along Stevenage Road.

Careful observers during the Sunday match between Fulham and Blackpool will have noticed the fat Michael Jackson impersonator running up and down the steps of one of the stands at Craven Cottage.
