I didn't watch the video hours ago...just read the report....
and now this...

the height would match...but there are many ppl who have MJs height...
so it could be everyone ...and Paris may just have looked because she was curious...
idk if to believe it...many users on mjhd are very enthusiastic and for them
it's a proof....

---still skeptical---

Yeah same here. I´m amazed that people are so good at spoting things. It´s very unclear but the curly hair is there, even if I do think the hair looks rather feminine. I could be wrong though.

lol we´re chasing each other on the other ones topic, I just read your comment at "my place" and laughed

oh yes..the "cross writing" is funny......

but only if someone wears a wig with curly hair (the last years MJ had straight hair
wigs...)
I don't know if it's just a distraction....
you see one particular thing....the curls...and it's MJ

I'm just careful.....just remember the big big thread about Sam and Glittr..

maybe that's the reason, why he's not chatting with them right now...
he's out with his kids and has no time to answer them their questions

I'm sooooooo lost Rolling Eyes

Yeah I know, maybe he wore wigs recent years because we was planning the hoax and thought that he could have his own hair back and noone would notice because we´re used to the straight hair wig.

We should be careful, you´re absolutely right!

I'm not sure about SAW mask but I observed nanny Grace walking around with a 'white scarf' and thought that Grace stuck out like 'white flag' ....like she was a 'marker' and easy to pick out of a crowd.

So, maybe you're right....this would be a good opportunity for MJ to have a quick word with Liz given that her email/twitter/phones probably tapped. I mean really, Liz just got out of hospital for 'heart clamp' so I find it 'strange' that Liz would be in such noisy excitment unless there was a 'very good reason'. Liz could have enjoyed tea and crumpets with the kids in the quiet of her home if she missed them and waned to 'visit'.

So, maybe it was MJ in the SAW mask! Risky, risky, risky! Man, if anyone whipped that mask off, it'd be game over.

a really strange fact is what could convince me...

- Paris looking at him...

but
the source....

who was first? TMZ!

i noticed paris looks at him and when she looks back you see her smiling
now this could ofcourse be because she thinks the masked person is just funny cause in the beginning someone screams when the masked one spooks them but he is sort of following them along and is that him giving the thumbs up?

Two things:

1- does anyone know where this video was taken
2- did anyone hear the big guy (security?) say "where is he" at about :07?


Looks to me it could possibly be MJ.

The whole month of October in the USA, people dress up in costumes. Lots of haunted amusement parks, costumes parties, etc. etc. before Oct. 31st
It seemed to me that person in the mask just popped out and scared Liz and Paris. That is why she looked back at him.
Just my opinion, but I wouldn't make anything out of this.

WOW,it maybe nothing,BUT!
1) Why would liz taylor after having heart surgery come to a halloween night at universal,maybe someone said you will feel better if you go along and see a face that will cheer you up.
2)ive watched the video full screen 10 times with my earphones in stopped it played freezeframed it,after 'mike' scares the blonde girl she says in a half pissed off tone 'michael',at that point 'mike' backs off because she said his voice out loud.
3)everyone looks very happy,look at Graces smile,what could Paris be whispering to liz as they about to leave,maybe is this the best get well present you could of have.
4)the thumbs up looks very michael like,looks like hes doing it for security purposes.
5)the security around them look a little twitchy while trying to remain as if hes just part of the group.
negatives,could be if you watch very closely at the right hand corner after the kids put there hands up,looks like someone puts on the mask,not sure?
is MJ about 5'10,5'9, this 'mike' looks a little smaller,paris is up to her dads shoulders on the rehearsal pics.

MIKE IS THAT YOU?

At this point anything is possible. TRT did give us the Liz clue and TMZ is reporting this first. Now, lets just wait and see how long it takes before other news venues pick it up. TMZ has definitely been proven as the brickman thus far and I think this is no exception. IMO, that looks as though it could very much be Michael.

MJ and Saw... never thought the two of my favorite subjects would mix.

If it isn't MJ, who else could it be to let so close to the kids? I watched the vid countless times and I spot no one else with a mask or costume on... Security isn't causing a stir when he comes close... His walk is so familiar...
