Some genius in the promotions department for the State College (Pa.) Spikes minor league baseball team decided it would be a good idea to hire Michael Jackson BFF/impersonator Corey Feldman for a postgame concert Monday night. What fans got was pretty much what you’d expect from a washed up ’80s child star with a coke problem: Feldman doing his MJ impression, while two ladies dressed as angels sang and did…uhhhh…stuff.
The team issued an apology for the show, describing the show as “offensive” and coming in “below expectations”.

How about the “WTF???” looks on the faces of all those kids, though? I’d love to hear these parents explain The Coreys (and Michael Jackson) to these kids. If there ever was a trio that could convince kids to stay away from drugs, it’d be that one.
