Resurrection


Now I know most people know about what happened at Coachella '12 but I don't care, I want to document it on here. Coachella music festival was held recently again in Cali which had the sickest line up of Dr Dre, Snoop, The Weeknd, A$AP Rocky and many many many more but in particular the artist that stole the show was none other than 2pac. At first, when I watched the video my first typical Alice reaction was
OH MY GOD TUPAC IS ALIVE I'M SO HAPPS THATS SO WEIRD THOUGH
...but then realised that it was a very cool and clever hologram and that was obviously not going to be true. WRONG though, it wasn't actually a hologram as most people think. What it was was a clever technique called 'peppers ghost.' This trick is achieved by placing plates of glass at certain angles to create the effect of images floating on air. To make Tupac was a more modern version of this in which 2D images of him were manipulated on to expensive computer screens instead of the glass and also some clever CGI was included.

Anyway, this was an amazing performance and it must be of fucking weird for the audience AND Snoop Dogg (now Snoop Lion), imagine performing next to your dead friend in the shape of a walking and talking..and rapping ghost! Shame they didn't have B.I.G but seeing as the festival was in Cali... Imagine both together on stage performing, that would be siiiiiickkkkkk! Watch it here below. Definitely want to go Coachella next year.
