When Michael Jackson died, the whole world predictably mourned. News of the King of Pop’s untimely death has also resulted in thousands of tributes from his fans all over the world. One such fan, 18-year old Eric Callisto, paid his respects in a very unconventional way.

The teenager from Indiana is commemorating the life and times of Jacko
by designing a Smart car. Callisto created a website where – for a $10 donation – fellow fans can have their names, businesses, or websites, put on the car.

It’s an unusual tribute even for Jackson’s standards, but Callisto says that the idea popped up after seeing the unprecedented grief Jackson’s fans sent out through Twitter. While we can’t fault Callisto for his intentions, it seems like an unusual tribute to a star known for being unconventional. Nevertheless, Callisto is still seeking the support from the Jackson family with the hopes of making his ‘tribute-designed’ Smart Car, the ‘official’ tribute car for Michael Jackson.

Unusual indeed.

In any case, if you’re a Michael Jackson fan and you feel that there’s still something you can do for your fallen idol, you can click on the website below and show your appreciation for the King of Pop by participating in Eric Callisto’s tribute car.

I’m a big fan of Michael Jackson, and I will definitely support his plan on creating a car to pay tribute to the King of Pop.

It’s a nice tribute to King of Pop Michael Jackson. It has a nice green color which symbolizes MJ’s care about the Earth. I really like the songs of Michael Jackson.

That’s cool, but I think this is overrated. I can;t even find any other info on Google.

Yeah, the guy will get the Smart bought with money of all the folks stupid enough to contribute.

The post is like a few months old, I tried Googling for a smart car tribute for Michael Jackson but I can’t seem to see one that has been painted with signatures and site links that is for him. Maybe fans didn’t like the idea or they have different ways of appreciating the icon.
