River Phoenix has tweeted from beyond the grave
We wrote recently about Psychic Sister Jayne Wallace’s ‘tweance’ on Twitter.
And on Friday, she summoned the spirits of dead celebrities including Michael Jackson, John Lennon, Marilyn Monroe, Abraham Lincoln, Houdini, River Phoenix, Kurt Cobain and William Shakespeare, nominated by the public.
The online event was a publicity stunt staged by a fancy dress shop in London ahead of Hallowe'en.
The shop, Angels Fancy Dress, let Tweeters vote on who they wanted to contact and the final list was made up of Michael Jackson, Kurt Cobain, William Shakespeare and River Phoenix.
Tweeters taking part chose questions for the foursome and their 'answers' were tweeted online.
So who was tweeting from beyond the grave? Well, Michael Jackson was said to be singing and ‘tweeted’ that he should have asked for help but he was now at peace. He revealed: ‘I AM happy and love and miss you all so very much, so much.’
Meanwhile, River Phoenix claimed his brother was the better actor and said, ‘I am sorry to my family for leaving in such a devastating way.’
Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain said, ‘I'm sorry that drugs destroyed my passion for music, music was what kept me alive. When the music died, I died.’
Jayne was unable to reach William Shakespeare.
A spokesman for Angels Fancy Dress said: ‘We've been amazed by the response we've had to this. We stopped counting at around 4,000 responses. And most people have been very positive.’
