Just hours away from what will be the 16th anniversary of Tupac Shakur’s last breath in a Las Vegas hospital, the company who revived the musical icon in the hologram form at Coachella, Digital Domain Media Group, passed away as well. Passed away in the business sense, that is. DDMG filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy as a means to protect itself from its creditors.
The company – with one of its founders being none other than James Cameron – scored special effects credits on a slew of movies including Pirates Of The Caribbean, Titanic and The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button. Already in a financial rut, the company’s idea was that reviving Pac would open the flood gates for other performers since they would receive a cut of the ticket sales.
So knowing what we know now, maybe this is why the Republicans were unsuccessful in obtaining the supernatural services of Ronald Reagan at the RNC. Duly noted.
