Tupac

"The "resurrection" of rapper Tupac Shakur wowed audiences at the Coachella music festival. But the illusion isn't a hologram, as some have reported -- it's actually a 2-dimensional video cleverly projected using technology based on an old theatre trick." [Roxanne Palmer @ IBTimes]
Not-hologram Tupac performed with Snoop Dogg & Dr. Dre at Coachella over the weekend (and presumably will again at Coachella this coming weekend). Watch the video HERE.

And check out more pictures from Coachella HERE, HERE and HERE.

The more they explain it, the less impressive it is.

What??

Dumbest gimmick ever... Tupac probably hates all the white people at Coachella and is rolling in his grave.

Love the drawing of Snoop but it's missing the giant spliff

This is the future of concerts everyone. Why watch a pathetic modern day version of Bad Brains when you can pay to watch a hologram version of '81 Bad Brains at CBGBs? Get used to this...

11:47 - Did you even read the article? It's not a hologram! You'll soon be receiving a letter from the Holographic Association of America (HAA).

In that illustration, tupac looks like some sort of pre-historic humanoid Neanderthal or something.

Now they killed Hologram Tupac too?

On orders by Weyland-Yutani.

Yet another lame attempt to try to mess with people's (who aren't 100% sure that Tupac is dead - the morons) minds on Tupac still being "alive" in a lame geeky, douchey way.


Hey, I really wish Jim Morrison was still alvie and well right now. That must mean he IS, right?

they should've acted like he was actually there in the flesh, then killed off the hologram at the end of the 2nd weekend. that'd have been baller.

hiphop sucks - it's all fake

I'm laughing at this because watch the video once again, you can see the lighting under Tupacs feet from where the halogram is projected...
