Zak Bagans, host of the Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures, is getting ready to open a haunted museum. His newest acquisition? The chair that Michael Jackson died while sitting in.
TMZ posted an interview with Bagans after the purchase, which you can see here at this link. Never known for their sense of tact, the video and attached article may bother some fans of the late King of Pop. A photo of the chair can be found through that link for those interested as well.
This is the chair that Jackson was sitting in when he died from an overdose of Propofol, administered by Conrad Murray on June 25th, 2009. The chair was purchased for around fifteen thousand dollars. It will be put in the television host’s museum, a historic house spanning 30 rooms of odd and perverse items. No one will be sitting in the chair; it will simply be put on display. Which, spiritual activity or not, is probably a good thing.
Bagans believes that, given the nature of the singer’s death, there is most likely a spiritual attachment that will be coming along with the purchase. Michael Jackson’s makeup is still on the chair itself from when he would get ready for the day each morning.
This house is known as the Wengert House and was built in 1938 by Cyril Wengert. Bagans claims that all of the rooms are open to the public besides the basement. In his own eloquent wording, “There’s a lot of dark, evil shit down there … We found out that in the 1970s, they used to do Satanic rituals in the basement.”.
How does this make you feel? Is this creepy or cool? Is it in poor taste? Let us know in the comments. I’d love to hear your opinions on this. For me, I’ll just leave it at “no comment.”
