Over The Moon
Breaking news everybody: Michael Jackson is still dead! The media may finally have moved on - this week any mentions of moonwalking were about Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin - but Jacko remains lifeless.
So, no longer distracted by the sticky, sweet-talking Queen of Pop, let's turn our attention back to the King, and pay homage one last time. Mindless and too late, you might retort, but hey, the dude's without a brain and remains unburied, so that would only make this Sunday's Moonwalking tribute even more appropriate.
Starting from the Columbus statue, the organizers, Poko Frecuente and Complot, hope to get hundreds to moonwalk up Las Ramblas. They encourage the wearing of white gloves, and also recommend props like epaulettes, gangster hats and cropped trousers. Monkeys, crotch-grabbing and underage boys optional.
If successful, it'll will not only be one last goodbye but also a record-setting for the biggest group to walk the entire length of Las Ramblas without getting harassed by prostitutes or have their wallets stolen. The previous record is allegedly held by the Garcias, a family of three from Girona. Smooth Criminals.
