Rich Man Blows Lots of Money on 'Thriller' Jacket

One of two jackets that Michael Jackson wore in his 'Thriller' video was sold at auction yesterday to a rich Texan named Milton Verret for $1.8 million(!). According to his blog, "Milton Verret is an avid car collector and a fan of hot rods, Corvettes, and other popular sports cars." And aside from the times when Verret wants to reenact 'Thriller' in his home, the jacket will go on tour:

The "Thriller" jacket will be put on display at Dell Children's Hospital in Austin, before sending it around the world to display during as a fundraising tool for children's charities.

Interesting choices there.
