Thuglife hologram

Marc Sanchez Apr 16, 2012

I spent a couple hours this weekend at the Coachella music festival. YouTube was broadcasting the event over three live streams. Having attended the festival in the past, I can say that watching at home made me much less anxious about whether I’d make it to see the next band on time. And bonus points for no for not having my home smell like dreadlocks and patchouli-soaked hacky sacks.
Someone who did show up to the Indio Valley festival, however, was Tupac, who has been dead for 15 years. A lifelike hologram of Tupac  “performed” with Snoop Dogg on a couple songs. Watch the NSFW video for yourself. Kinda like watching a video game and probably really strange for Snoop Dogg who had to pretend he had a partner.
