Michael Jackson’s Thriller Jacket Sells for $1.8 Million!

The iconic red and black leather jacket from [lastfm link_type=”similar_artist_radio”]Michael Jackson[/lastfm]’s Thriller video has just been sold at an LA auction.

It sold for $1.8 Million dollars.

Think you missed out? Don’t worry! Apparently this is just one of two jackets that Michael Jackson wore while filming the music video. So if you’ve got your heart set on this jacket, you’d better start saving your pennies now.

The purchaser is wealthy Texan Milton Verret who has plans to put it on display at an Austin children’s hospital. After that, he’ll be sending it on a Good Will tour across the country, raising money for various children’s charities.

Way to be such a swell guy, Mr. Verret. We’d tip our hat to you, but we’re a zombie now and our brain would just fall out.
