From Worldwide Vigils to Online Dance Collaborations

— July 12, 2009 — Pop Culture
Since the King of Pop passed away at the end of June, the world has mourned his death with innumerable Michael Jackson tributes. Here, we've collected the most viral of these innovations.

From Michael Jackson tattoos to crowdsourced Moonwalk dances, these Michael Jackson tributes are a beautiful way to mourn the passing of an icon that many of us grew up listening to and loving.

Implications - When iconic people pass on, products that commemorate the star surface quickly. Companies produce the products to gain as much profit as possible on the icon's death. Ideas such as tattered memorial vests and Michael Jackson jewelry attract a target who wants the memory of the star to continue to live on.
