The trailer for a new television series featuring iconic figures has dropped and Michael Jackson looks, um, wow, just wow. 

The satirical comedy series titled Urban Myths sees rumoured stories about well-known celebrities and historical figures reenacted. One dramatisation tells the rumoured story of when Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando and Michael Jackson took a road trip together. 

This is where things get weird. Played by Shakespeare In Love actor Joseph Fiennes, Michael Jackson looks straight up bizarre.

Director of the four episode series, Ben Palmer has explained: 

“We were casting Michael Jackson in 2001 and that obviously is a challenge in terms of the physical resemblance.

“We were really looking for the performance that could unlock the spirit, and we really think Joe Fiennes has done that. He’s given a really sweet, nuanced, characterful performance.” 

'Kay but we still can’t get over this face, though…
