Pristine Auction is proud to announce that the original medical documents describing Michael Jacksons’ life-changing Pepsi commercial burning incident are now being offered at auction to the highest bidder. This incredibly rare and desirable piece of Michael Jackson’s legacy is live for auction now at http://www.pristineauction.com and ends on December 12th, 2012.
On January 27th, 1984, Jackson was filming a performance in front of 3,000 people for a Pepsi advertisement. As part of the display, a series of pyrotechnics were used, but tragedy occurred when an early explosion resulted in the pop star’s head catching fire. Jackson was rushed to the hospital where he was treated for second-degree burns and was prescribed several medications. According to USA Today (http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/life/people/2009-07-16-jackson-fire-video_N.htm), many experts believe that this event triggered the subsequent downfall of Jackson’s life, which resulted in the addiction that resulted in his eventual death from a prescription pill overdose on June 25th, 2009. As a result, these documents display an incredible and climactic moment in the pop star’s life.
The medical document collection includes hand-written doctors’ notes, never-before-seen Polaroid photos of Michael Jackson’s injuries, a discharge summary of the event, a list of medications Jackson was prescribed, and a release form signed by Michael Jackson himself that sent all the documents to his lawyers for the resulting lawsuit. According to MTV News (http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1616411/pepsi-responds-michael-jackson-accident-video.jhtml), Pepsi eventually settled the incident out of court for $1,500,000, which Jackson donated to the Brotman Memorial Hospital in Los Angeles to help fund the Michael Jackson Burn Center for Children.
Michael Jackson is regarded as the “King of Pop” and became a mega-celebrity in the music industry. Always an elite performer, his career began at a very young age with The Jackson 5. His later solo career elevated him to incredible heights as he released countless hit songs like “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough”, “Billie Jean”, and “Thriller”. The Guinness Book of World Records has named Michael Jackson the most successful entertainer of all time.
Because of the significance of this event to Jackson’s amazing life, the medical documents are regarded as priceless and are expected to be auctioned for a price between $100,000-$500,000.
