Celebrity Holograms, Cool Idea or a Little On the Creepy Side?

The latest thing as a way to earn money off of dead celebrities is to create holograms of them. Michael Jackson has performed since his death courtesy of this technology and there are plans in the works for several other musicians to make appearances and video products in the same manner. The latest to announce upcoming plans is the estate of the late Whitney Houston. Dead celebrities have always made a lot of money and I'm sure their heirs look on the sale of their merchandise much the same way as we would keep running the family business after our parents are gone. However, this takes it a step further and it is a lot different that watching a video that the real person recorded prior to their death. What do you think about this? Is it cool or a little on the creepy side? Do you think computer created actors and musicians will one day replace the real thing?

I think it's both cool and creepy. I think it could be possible for it to replace real musicians in the future. Technology is getting crazy!

I think it is creepy and greedy!! We don't need holograms of Houston--we can see her 'live', doing her thing in videos, movies, shows, etc.

I think that this is creepy. I prefer to listen to the music and remember than to look at an hologram.
