The Thriller Timeline Project is Fake

The Thriller Timeline Project offers a fake albeit entertaining look at what recording artist Michael Jackson's Facebook profile may have looked like. Instead of being focused on the celebrity's life, it looks to his Thriller soundtrack only.

Brazilian artist Billy the Butcher pairs his images of The Thriller Timeline Project with a social media-themed poem. In it are a series of puns with morbid references to friend requests and Mark Zuckerberg, building on some of the language present in the song.

These creative profile pictures showcase zombies, panthers and Jackson himself. The Foursquare references to the Zombie Walk Flash Mob and Palace Cinema allow the faux portrayal to resonate with modern online profiles, drawing ties between the musician and users of popular networks.
