2. Holographic 2Pac Live at Coachella 2012
One of the biggest viral sensations this week was the “resurrection” of a famous rapper, Tupac. The legendary Tupac made a return at the Coachella music festival. He was revived as a hologram, like the very popular hologram concerts in Japan. The walking-and-talking projection is estimated to have cost about $400,000 and was made by Dr. Dre and James Cameron’s Digital Domain. The video got a lot of exposure on blogs and Twitter. It even made Tupac Hologram an Internet meme. The only minor point was that Coachella keeps on deleting the videos on YouTube. Do they understand the Internet?
