DEAD NATE DOGG Performing At Coachella As A HOLOGRAM. No, Srsly.

Ain’t this some Futuro Pop Culture Nonsense right here. Nate Dogg will be digitally  risen! again come Coachella, as the good sir will perform as a hologram. I’m not making any of this bullshit up.


Remember the time David Spade exploited the fond dead memories of Chris Farley for that stupid DirecTV ad? Sort of? Well, this is worse!  TMZ reports  Nate Dogg will play Coachella from beyond the grave. As a hologram.

Using technology similar to that previously  employed by Mariah Carey  on stages across Europe, Nate Dogg will “be projected onto the Coachella stage – alongside Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, Warren G, and Daz Dillinger.” What will this image do? Stand there, a la Obi Wan and Yoda at the end of Return of the Jedi? Will Coachella use archival footage of the legendary hook crooner? What if Warren G walks through Nate Dogg’s ghost hologram? It will be hard to suspend disbelief!

For some reason all I can think of is William Gibson’s Bridge Trilogy  right here. Whacky shit.
