This is one of those things that I am I apparently jumped the gun on this one. This was a clever little edit that had made its way here. I couldn’t find anything to refute at press time, so we ran it.
The hologram used was actually Bray Wyatt. I’m leaving the article, since we’ll gladly take our lumps.
I’d like to personally apologize for the error. We take pride in delivering the highest quality content available, and we’ve definitely slipped up, this time.
Sometimes, there really are no words to describe a situation.
At this year’s WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event, the match between Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins received a most unusual interruption. Ambrose, who had Rollins’s head to a cinder block, was preparing to seal the match with one final blow, when the arena suddenly went dark. The arena lit in a starry array of cell phones and glow sticks, as a lantern was lit in the middle of the ring. Up from the lantern’s light, in a puff of smoke arose… Hatsune Miku.
Bear with me, on this one.
Miku sang the first few bars of her mega-hit World Is Mine, which left Ambrose confused and wandering toward the digital diva. At the point where the song would hits that hard rock break-down, Bray Wyatt burst through the projection and clocked Ambrose, sending him to the mat.
Honestly speaking, this is one of the most amusing and surreal uses of Hatsune Miku, whose last concerts opened with a chirpy song about sharing the world. Still, I have to give props for the overall creativity of the stunt, and the truly hilarious juxtaposition between Miku, and the world of American pro wrestling. It’s crazy, and I’m sure a good number of people shared Ambrose’s confused expression, but it works.
It got Miku’s image out to an entirely new demographic, and did so in a way that really worked within the pastime.
Now, only one question remains: Has Hatsune Miku turned heel on everybody?
Huge thanks to Brian Auxier for the tip on this one!
