If you had your eyes pointed at your television a little bit ago, you saw a very curious sight – Michael Jackson prancing around the stage at the Billboard Music Awards in all his holographic glory. Because that’s a thing we do now — resurrect people with the terrifying technologies of 2014.
I could tell you what I thought about it for hours on end, but instead I decided to go round up the funniest reactions from Twitter, because they’re way funnier than anything I could dream up…which would basically just be WTFWTFWTFWTFWTF and nobody needs to read that.

Um yeah, same question? Except the work version.
no one can deny that the Michael Jackson hologram resembles Miranda Cosgrove just a tiny bit — Adam Buongiovanni (@AdamBongo) May 19, 2014

Please don’t do this to my brain — I have to sleep at some point tonight.

Ashlee Simpson and Britney Spears would be proud.
turns out this michael jackson hologram is just as confusing and uncomfortable as we imagined — LW (@lindseyweber) May 19, 2014
Couldn’t have put it better myself.
Right now Michael Jackson is rolling in his grave. Which means hopefully he will get up and perform Thriller.

Somebody going to sue Michael Jackson’s hologram for sexual molestation tomorrow.

HASHTAG TOO SOON?
I am very scared why is Michael Jackson alive — darlene (@camsfrappucino) May 19, 2014
I’m honestly surprised that everyone didn’t tweet this.
Do you mean to tell me that Michael Jackson wasn’t always a hologram?
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to block all of the Hologram Michael Jackson Twitter accounts that just sprung up.

Oh GOD. Didn’t even think of that, but please someone get on it.
Okay, but how do we know this isn’t just Michael Jackson’s ghost? #BBMAs
